    New Triton Trailer--

    Greetings--

    We finally bit the bullet and bought a new Triton WC II Elite trailer for our GTX LTDs.

    To get the Doos off the old trailer onto the new one-- I'll have to take it to the local dealer (who didnt sell Triton trailers, btw). He said they'd be happy (read $$$ happy here LOL) to lift the Doos off and back on with their hoist. I'm trying to take as little time as possible adjusting the bunks, ect, sooooooo--

    Anyone with a WC II Elite and two GTX's-- Would you mind measuring a bit on yours to get :

    -- Which bunk swivels-- top/outside or bottom/inside ?
    -- Distance between bunk mounts ?
    -- Winch setup- Distance the mounting bar is set (How much of the channel is showing at the front of the mount for example) ?

    That will save me some time and $$ just having to tweek the settings rather than starting from scratch.

    Thanks--

    22" between the bunks usually works great on these skis with any trailer

    LOL-- Yeah I have a 125" wide gate *wiping brow* It takes a good eye and steady nerves to back up the driveway and curve around the g/f car. Our other trailer was as wide-- no dings yet.

    Shhr-- Thanks for the offer-- no need to make a special trip to check. If you happen to run by--that's fine. We're taking the Doos out to the lake tomorrow-- and transfering them to the new trailer Friday AM if the dealer has time.

    the bottom .... you have the bunks like this"

    \ /

    distance between the bottom edges of the bunks (slash marks in this case )

    the winch is easy to play with... start the skis back further and keep testing the tongue wait and slowly keep moving the winch slides further forward until the tongue is heavy enough.. i found that my triton double needed the skis so far forward that the winch slides were maxed out to their forward-most potential (3-seater skis) ... of course this means alot of flex and one of my welds broke

    i'm thinking the newer tritons probably are better equipped for the newer longer heavier skis... my triton double is an 02 i believe, same year the heavy 4-tecs were introduced. maybe they made some axle positioning changes to compensate for the tongue weight

    How Much?

    If you don't mind telling, how much did you pay for that Triton?
    I can't seem to get a price around here without going through the
    whole used car type dance!

    For the Double Elite Triton trailer with all the goodies expect around $2,000 for one. You might be able to get a deal on one now as dealers are trying to move inventory!

    I don't know how possible this is on your old trailer, but.....

    when I switched trailers I just removed the winch/stand on the old trailer and then slid the old trailer under the new one(tounge jack up, tongue on the ground). This eliminated anything in front of the Doo's. Then, line the bunks up as close as possible and then simply winched the Doo's onto the new trailer. I hope that made sense. Took me 10 minutes and didn't cost a dime.
