Bunk end clamps question

Posted this in the Salem section, but thought I would get quicker response here...thanks!

Hey everyone, my name is Aaron and I'm new to the forum. I am also new to the Hybrid Trailer scene, although not new to camping. I've been enjoying camping ever since I was a small child.

I have searched the forum and the internet and found many (and very useful) posts on how to change my "screw-type" bunk end clamps to the Fastec locking kind. When I bought my trailer, a 2002 Salem Lite, one was missing and one is seized up, so I decided when replacing them, to do so with the better style.

I have read that the part numbers I need are 65004-100 for the cargo vise, and 65006-100 for the bar itself. I called Fastec and looked at their online catalogue, and they said that the bar only swings up and down (and does not swivel in and out as I have seen on many of the posts I looked at). Has anyone ordered these part numbers lately? Maybe the catalogue has the wrong picture (or a general picture).

If they don't sell the kind that swivel in and out, will the style they do sell work?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

i know many have done this with their older hybrids, but i've not seen anyone here do it.
you might want to ask a similar question on's Hybrid forum.
it's the most active hybrid forum and this mod you're doing, has been done to all brands of hybrids, not just FR ones.
there are just a lot more members on that forum, than on this forum, since it's not a brand-specific hybrid forum.

I think this might be something you're looking for. I bookmarked it a while back from a post in here that had links to it. Here's the final destination of those links - RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Hybrid Travel Trailers: bunk clamps
