    3 years later....

    Well 3 years after first signing up for this forum and expressing interest in getting a 300X, I'm actually in the process of purchasing a 310X SE. I have 3 offers on the table, all appear to be pretty good deals. Only difference in the price is coming from the trailer.

    So my question to the green hulk community is, could you guys give me a little feed back on a few brands of trailers?

    Best deal I got comes with a Karavan trailer, I just asked for specifications but haven't received them yet.

    My highest quote included a TrailMaster trailer, the dealer said it has diamond plating, upgraded wheels ect.

    Last but not least was a Triton trailer. I have done a little research on these, they seem to be great trailers but on the pricy side.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated, we are hoping to have our new toy by the end of the month!

    Salt get the Triton or a galvanized.
    Don't bother with the fancy diamond plate. Causes galvanic corrosion due to dissimilar metals. 1 of mine is on a hiway some where, I took the other 3 off.

    Trail-rite. ok.
    Zeiman. ok.
    Karavan. ok
    Pacific. good
    Triton. good
    Shadow. best.

    Seriously if you do much ocean riding at all get a galvanized one. Your home area is not in your sig so I can't tell if you are inland or???

    Good luck. The SE is a beautiful powerful monster!

    Thanks for the reply, it will probably never see salt water. I just don't want a cheap trailer that I'm going to have problems with down the road. The last jet ski I owned the trailer was a complete piece of crap and I promised myself I'd do a better job on researching before I bought. I love the Triton trailer and would love the ability to add the toolbox and gas cans to the front.

    The best deal I got comes with a Karavan trailer, I went to their website which is limited so I'm not sure about their build.

    You inspired me to do a search. And I found Bear TrailerSports. I didn't see any prices, but I'm sure they're pricey!

    Zeiman's paint quality is in the toilet these days, I babied mine for the first 5 years, fresh water only, it still looked horrible from rust right through/under the paint (not from scratches or dings). I have been told it is because of the crappy paint they must use here in Cali but I have not confirmed that. Between that and an axle spindle that came loose from a very poor weld (zero penetration) I would never recommend them at all.

    That seems to be the forum favorite.

    Three years on my black Karavan trailer and it's still in perfect shape, no complaints whatsoever - also came with bearing buddy sealed bearing caps which seem to be doing a great job
