    Just bought new Ski, Need help selecting trailer, pictures inside.

    I just bought a 2014 Seadoo 215 Limited, which is a 3 seater.

    I am trying to find a good trailer to purchase, and want something of high quality. I am in Indiana, and having a hard time finding anything decent.

    The only trailers that have caught my eye is the:

    1.) 2014 Sea-Doo iCatch™ with Walk Pad
    2.)2014 Triton's LTWCI-TX

    Do you guys have any other suggestions on which trailer I should get>?

    Also I am having a difficult time finding the seadoo trailer, it seems no one carries them because of there cost, and the dealers have to order 6 at a time.


    Thanks and appreciate any help , I added some photos of the two I was looking @

    When I was looking to buy, I ended up with Yamaha. So for the trailer, the ONLY one that EVERYBODY recommended was Triton. So that's what I ended up with.

    If you do a search, you will find that some people have had issues with the "iCatch" feature on the SeaDoo trailer. That's probably why it's hard to find. I know that one dealer I spoke to about them said that he will not order any more because of the failures.

    My dealer told me the same about the ICatch trailers that Ziggy posted above. I ended up with a Shoreland'r. It has been very dependable and is very solid and strong. I bought it in galvanized in case I ever end up putting in salt water.

    I wish I could get these trailers, but they are in California.

    Triton is the overwhelming favorite here on the forum.

    i currently have my GTR sitting on an icatch trailer. please keep in mind with the icatch trailers if it is an older model like mine a 2011 and all updates have been done then it is fine. with a brand new one i would expect it would be fine as well. yes there have been issues with some of them when they were first released but i believe those issues have been taken care of.

    the ability to pull a lever and launch is fantastic as well as loading and once its locked you are good to pull the trailer out of the water just enough to get your rear straps ones. NEVER NEVER NEVER go more than a few feet without having those rear straps. we are talking a cpl mins to insure that if there is some form of failure your ski stays put. even traditional trailer winches can fail.

    now that ive said that i also have a brand new road master single trailer sitting next to the gtr. i am a fan of the traditional trailers and if i had the $$ id go triton all the way with the torsion axle like many here would.

    either trailer will server you well. the icatch is also a low profile trailer meaning it will put you in the water sooner over the triton which sits high so you need to ask yourself is that an issue where you will be launching.

    regardless of which one you pick you will be happy. they are both great trailers.
