When we were kids, we used to take a summer road trip each vacation. Car camping was fun with campfires and games and roasted marshmallows. Dad made it fun.

However, once we all got a little older it seemed like the fun of burning down the woods was no longer as appealing.

So the next logical step was a boat trailer with a bunk on it. That might be a stretch. Yes, it's a stretch. However, it doesn't make this roundup review any less insightful.

And the next step after that was to camp on the water.

I love floating around on one of those lakes in the middle of nowhere, taking in the gorgeous views.

The downside is that you have to stay organized, and that is a lot harder than it sounds. You’re sleeping on a plastic boat that, if not properly secured, can have a bad case of the creaks and squeaks.

Worse yet, you may be a kayaker. In that case, you may need bunks to hold your kayaks.

You can’t use just any wooden boat trailer bunks, though. You need good ones, and good quality means relying on something that is good at resisting rot and mildew.

Which is why this post will help. By the time you are done reading, you will know exactly which woods float your boat (You are correct. This pun was intended!) and what the best woods are for the job.
