    Triton Blaze VS1 or Northtrail PW1200

    Buying a new ski and the dealer is really pushing the Triton Blaze trailer. I've had the Northtrail before and have been really happy with it.

    The all aluminum trailers I've seen before I find are very noisey and rattle more than the Northtrail/Yacht club style trailers.

    I'll be towing with a car and the ski is going to be a 10footer 2 seater about 800lbs

    Any opinions on which is better?

    If you want a quiet and smooth tow then look for a trailer with torsion axle suspension, not noisy leaf springs.

    I have a Triton Elite double (all welded aluminum) which is well made, very smooth even over bumps and quite quiet.

    To further quell noise I have an anti-rattle ball mount in the vehicle receiver. The ball mount does not wiggle or clunk around while towing, greatly reducing the amount of noise inside the car.

    Another factor is trailer length from hitch ball to axle. Generally speaking a longer trailer will tow better, and is easier to reverse with.

    Thanks K447,

    I'll do some more research and maybe even pick up my own trailer seperately.

    LOL I can't remember who I "borrowed" it from but I could swear it was a moving gif last time I looked at it... Plus the over all shape of the rider in the graphic looks like me so I thought it appropriate

    It was a moving gif at very first...then I changed the colors to look like a GTR 215 and to no longer move. Here's the original if you want it.

    I used to have a yacht club double trailer with leaf springs very noisy and hard riding when hitting bumps. I have a 2010 Triton Elite single place trailer with the torsion axle and the upgraded 13 inch wheels instead of the 12 inch wheels. Smooth easy riding trailer no noise can't even feel the trailer behind you. I just moved to Texas from New York City and drove over 1800 miles carrying my 2006 Seadoo GTX LTD with no problems at all.

    I ended up picking up a brand new galvanized Karavan trailer with the Torsion suspension. Due to storage requirements I wanted the shortest possible trailer that could hold the newer 4 stroke machines. Its 12.5feet long, has a 1250lb capacity and they are a great deal compared to other brands (around here). When I looked it over it was obvious it's not the best trailer out there, they definitely cut some corners but nothing that can't be adjusted or changed. Overall for the price it seems great and rode really well with no machine on the back, no noise and was nice and smooth.
