    Aluminum trailer suggestions

    I'm looking to purchase a new trailer, Aluminum Single ski. I am contemplating either a Triton LTWCI, or a custom fabricated Aluminum trailer from a local manufacturer. The Triton uses a square-shaped tube with welded construction. The Local manufacturer (Rocket International) uses I-beam and bolt construction with diamondplate fenders and is much like a larger boat trailer would be constructed. Price is similar. Does anyone have any experience with these 2 different types of trailer construction, and the pros/cons of each?

    I have a Triton Elite ll with the torsion axle. Built like a tank, but pulls like a dream. Also has a nice wheel hub greasing system. Many Triton dealers for customer support. No matter were ya go, there's a Triton dealer....

    The Rocket trailer is also all aluminum?

    Stainless steel bolt hardware?

    Torsion axle?

    What price is the Rocket trailer?

    The Triton LT is the most basic model. I prefer the Triton Elite with torsion axle, much nicer ride, and quieter over the bumps.

    The better watercraft trailers also have lower bunk heights, which helps a lot when backing down shallow ramps. A few inches lower can make a big difference at some ramps.
