    Shorland'r or Triton trailer?

    Which do you guys think will be a "better" 2 place trailer? I have a continental right now and am thinking about getting rid of it and getting one of these two trailers (Shorlander or Triton).

    I want/need a HD trailer for the new incoming Ultra 250x (probably 2 of them).

    I know I can get cutom trailers from the likes of Shadow etc but 5K for a trailer is not going to happen in my opinion.

    Ultimately, I would love a trailer that could transform into say a utility trailer when needed or jet ski when needed, or motorcycle trailer but I guess that is only available in the $5K range.

    Torsion axles on the triton means a better ride for whatever is on the trailer.

    An interesting thing to note here is the the Triton LT is rated for more weight than the Elite, and comes equipped w/ leaf springs rather than torsion bars.

    triton elite is the way to go make sure your garage doors are 9' or it will not fit in your garage also Triton is good to work with call them about the weight concern they will probably have a good solution for you

    Interesting that this thread came up. I'm looking for a nice one place trailer right now.

    Depending on where you live, will depend on what you can get. I'm catching hell finding a Triton dealer in AZ.

    Here's what I've come up with so far....

    I'm looking for a new or used "cradle design" aluminum or galvanized single place trailer... but I'll settle for a really nice I-beam powdercoated steel.

    What I've found so far:

    -Triton Aluminum trailer. This is my favorite, but no retailers in AZ and no way to get one. I'm going to try the regional distributor one more time.

    -Newmans Aluminum trailer. This one is nice, but sits rather high, even for a cradle design. I found one place in town, but they played bait and switch the big dumb guy... I ran at least one 2x quad sale out the door for them after they tried to **** me. Guess I'm screwed on that one.

    -Playcraft. Local Steel box frame. Uggh. Not really on my list.

    -Shorelander. Boxed, galvanized, but not a cradle design. Kind of hokey, and expensive. They want $1300 for a single galvanized. Uggh.

    -Zeiman trailers. C-beam, heavy duty powdercoated steel. Could be used to carry a quad instead. Storage box and Gas can. Extremely sturdy design. $1100. This would be my second choice so far. I like the design so much, I might be willing to strip it down myself and have it coated.

    -Karavan. They make a box frame galvanized trailer with a cradle design. No dealers located in the southwest. They got 50 dealers in Florida!

    -FE trailers. Located in SD. Galvanized AND powdercoated Box Frame after welding. Super drop design. Not too expensive. Very interesting.

    FE Trailers
    1168 North Johnson Avenue
    El Cajon, CA. 92020

    -Shadow trailers. Too ****in expensive. $3200 for a single place trailer. My momma raised a fool, but not THAT big of a fool. The 2-place trailer I picked out came to $5000.

    -Magnetta Trailers... Basically a shorelander.

    two questions

    I have a 550 lb Seadoo GSX 2 seater, I'm getting an Ultra
    250 or RXT which come in just under 1000lb with gas.
    Is it a probem to run a trailer with one side much heavier than
    the other?? Doesn't seem it would be too bad. I like the
    Triton with the torsion axle, but maybe the leaf springs would
    be better.

    I also want to get a 15' to 20' RIB boat with outboard to go
    with two ski's. However I've been trying to figure out Trailer
    for such setup. RIB forward, bunks for it extend all way to back
    of trailer so you can launch ski's first than boat?? Too complicated,
    forget it??
