Triton 2 place Trailers
Who has a Triton 2 place watercraft trailer. Likes? Dislikes? I am thinking about getting one.

Awesome trailer. It has a real axle instead of the cheap looking one my Yacht Club had. Only downfall is I think the five foot bunks are too short. I made some 5.5 ones.

The torsion axle makes a real difference in how well it rides down the road. Smooth and quiet.
I would suggest an upgrade to quality LED lights.
Virtually everyone who has a Triton Elite (single or double) seems to love them, myself included.
Triton upgraded their PWC trailer designs circa 2002-2003, so the newer models are better then the Triton trailers from the 1990's.

I can hook you up with my trailer guy but you know the adders it would require.

I love mine. The tortion axle on the Elite series rides SOOOO much better than leaf springs, & the Elites also come with stainless hardware. The only thing left to do with mine is replace all the lights with LED's. I had one taillight go bad after only a few weeks & I noticed the small round lights in the middle of the trailer fill up with water. Other than that it's been perfect...just took a few trips to get used to seeing how much they flex when you hit bumps on the highway.
After previously using single place Tritons, I just had to figure out a way to drain the water from my skis 'cause there's no way I can lift this one by hand.

You can get a Triton single with a torsion axle (non-elite), they go for a $1000 new around here.

We've had a Triton WCII elite for a few years. We're happy with it. It pulls well. As several have said, we also replaced the main lights with LED units. Only had 1 blowout and 1 worn tire since the originals, so that telle me it tracks well.
the hub/axle areas seem to be rusting a bit more than expected. They look like a cast iron construction.
the plastic licence plate holder broke
I just noticed the comment about the double trailer being too heavy to lift. I tried setting the Doo's back some so I could lift it. It took too much off the tounge weight. I can lift the trailer tounge and set it on a stand to drain when they're both empty but no way with full- 1/2 tanks of gas in them. I have plans to build a wench on a post that fits in to the truck hitch to lift them.

I am in the market for a WC2-2. Do you have a dealer close by you? So far the only place I found in Texas that has Tritons in stock is a dealer Northwest of Houston.
