    Triton LT1 or Elite WC 1 for yamaha suv

    I'm undecided as to which trailer to get. Anyone currently using either one for an SUV? If so can you post pics or give your thoughts?

    The Triton Elite is the nicer trailer.

    The torsion axle makes for a smooth ride and the hardware is all stainless steel on the Elite model.

    I think the Elite is also longer which makes for easier towing and better control when backing down a launch ramp.

    I have a double Triton Elite, which I am quite happy with.

    I don't have the SUV hull but I have no doubts it would fit nicely, given the adjustable bunk brackets on the Triton trailers.

    Drove 450 miles round trip today to pick up 1 of a dealer's last 2 2013 Elite Triton trailer today. Long day but well worth it. As soon as I get my SUV on it I'll post pics. FYI the Elite was discontinued for 2014, if anyone is thinking about getting one you might want to get one soon.

    Make sure the bunks are properly set to match up with the SUV hull.

    You want the bunks as far apart as possible while still fitting between the hull ridges.

    The triton trailer brackets for the bunks have two or three height positions. Set the brackets to the lowest bunk position that will still allow the hull to clear the fenders.

    If you spray Liquid Rollers or similar bunk lubricant onto the bunk carpet (let it dry for a few minutes) it makes it much easier to slide the hull on and off the trailer while you fine tune the bunk positions.

    I did not know that Triton was no longer making the single PWC Elite trailer. Too bad

    Actually the replacement model the LTCW1-TXS is more trailer for the same money. The new model includes LED lighting and has built in ratcheting tie downs. Both are standard. It is the same length as the Elite and also has torsion suspension. If you want the stainless hardware the dealer needs to call Triton and request as it is not on their dealer cost sheet. The "X" in the above model number indicates stainless hardware.

    I had a 2014 Elite on order and the dealer let me know it was no longer being offered and that he was replacing with the model above at no additional charge.

    Does it have the same load weight ratings, or possibly increased?

    LED lighting as standard should already be standard across the industry, imho.

    I am curious what these included tie downs actually are.

    Load weight is 1790 and length is 183".

    Not sure about the tie downs either and there is no picture on the Triton website.

    I am not picking mine up until mid April but will take some pictures then.

    Website said the axel is galvanized. Is that the same as the Elite?
