    That's an extremely good trailer, Triton's all I ever buy. I have a 1995 thats still in perfect shape. Never have to worry about rust.

    Triton makes rather nice trailers. I have a Triton Elite dual PWC trailer and have owned the single leaf spring model in the past.

    Personally, I really prefer the torsion axle models, which Triton calls 'Elite'. The leaf spring models are OK but the torsion axle rides so much nicer, and quieter over bumps. The Elites also have all stainless steel bolt hardware, and a longer frame overall.

    Triton makes two versions with leaf springs, as I recall. The nicer version has the cross members bowed down to allow the hull to sit lower to the ground. This really helps when launching on shallow ramps and keeps the tow vehicle farther up the slope.

    The most basic Triton model has straight frame cross bars and the bunks sit up on top, so the hull is much higher. Still a well made trailer, but more basic.

    If you have a choice, I recommend upgrading to the Elite, or at least the mid-range leaf spring model.

    Triton has some unusual axle bearing grease systems. Which one you get depends on the trailer model.

    For example, the Sure-Lube system allows you to pump fresh grease into a nipple on the outside of the hub and the old grease flushes through via a special axle design. Depending on the axle, bearing buddies may not be applicable.

    What I'm not a big fan of is the amount of flex when going over rough spots at interstate speeds. You also have to make sure your skis are at the bow rollers when loading. If not, when you attempt to winch the ski forward, the arm that the winch is mounted to will flex up and pull to the ski...the ski won't budge. Maybe leave it there and as it creeps forward while trailering/bouncing, it will keep slack out of your rear straps? Assuming nothing breaks...
