Default Escort trailer fenders???

My boat trailer is original (Escort)and is for a 1999maxum 1900 sr. Escort went out of business years ago. I was curious if any of you have replaced the original steel fender that were angled on the inside (against boat) with a set of plastic fenders? I can't seem to locate the original type fenders that had the carpeted angle backs on them. The last set i used, I tried to cut a standard galvanized fender and replicate them, but wound up cutting a groove on the tire and scratched th side of my boat from the lack of room between the fenders/tires/boat. I think it was the bolts holding the carpeted boards to the fender that did the damage. Since then I have went without any. I get my freshly painted boat back nexy week and need some fenders to keep the debris off of it. The trailer is a single axle by the way.

I have a similar issue with the trailer for my 2000 1900SR. I actually have spots on the hull where the bottom paint was rubbed off by the fenders. I have contemplated modifyng the bunks to raise the boat above the fenders and putting standard fenders without cutouts on the trailer. If you come across a repalcement I woudl be very interested.

Countryme what size tires are on the 2000 model trailer? I already raised my bunks a little with new parts but could only get a small amount more clearence. I was thinking maybe going to a smaller tire diameter, but I am not sure if the weight load of the boat would permit that. Anybody know what dry weight for the 1999 1900 model boat is? I can't find it on the website. Was thinking maybe going to a 14" wheel or even running maybe a 205 instead of a 225 to get just a slightly smaller width tire. Problem is the 205 only comes in the C class load rating. I believe mine are a D class rating, but not sure if they were the original tires. Anybody have any input??

Check these out, CountryME. These look similarto the originals but I don't know if the same problem would persist with the rubbing. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=190377769383

OK, so I emailed a guy who purchased those fenders in March. He replied and said they fit "perfectly" and worked on a 2002 escort trailer for his Maxum 1900sr. Think i might give them a shot.

Let me know how close the bunks are to the boat sides when you get them.

Will do. i am going to have to refabricate some side bunks/fender bumpers out of something as mine were destroyed long ago. I will let you know how it goes when I get them done.

I looked all over last year for the original fender style that came on my Escort. (I own a 1700 w/escort trailer. Single axle.) I finally found the fenders at Great Lakes Skipper. I think I paid $25-$30 per fender in October 2010. As for the carpet piece (I think it's called the fender skirt) you are on your own. I had to re-use my old ones. I fairly certain you could make your own skirts. (It's plywood and carpet.)

Tracking says the fenders will be here tomorrow. I went ahead and ordered some wheel spacers for the tires to give me an extra 3/4" on both sides as well. Hopefully It will work out. Now I just need to locate some longer wheel studs to complete the setup. After I get them in hand, I'll make the skirts for them.
