    Triton LtwcII

    Just finished cleaning up a Triton two place and moved my skis over to it(Spark and a 2013 GTI). For those of you who have this trailer, how far do your GTI's or similarly sized skis hang off the back? I've got it moved forward about as far as I can get it and it still hangs off a probably a foot or a foot and a half. I did covert the bunks to 6' long, so there's plenty of bunk now. Just wanting to make sure I'm not hanging off the back too much. Thanks

    What model year is the Triton?

    Can you post a photo of the front winch tower area?

    Can the winch tower be shifted forward any further?

    It's a 2002, the trailer is at my dad's house right now so can't get a picture. Will snap one the next time I'm over there. But from what I can tell, I have the winch tower slid forward as far as possible. It's bumped up against the rubber end cap on the rail. I know this is one of the more popular trailers, so I'm thinking it's fine, but I'd love to see some pictures just for reference.

    Triton rejigged their PWC trailer specs sometime in the early 2000's if memory serves. The revised models had higher load weight ratings and the overall frames are longer.

    I do not recall if your 2002 dual was before, during or after the changes, so it is possible your trailer is the older/smaller/shorter configuration. Fuzzy memory that the dual trailer models changed in a different year than the singles

    What is the load weight rating on your Triton trailer VIN sticker?

    I have a 2008 Triton Elite dual. With two 120 inch long PWC hulls I still have a few inches of winch tower adjustment and the hulls do not hang off the back much at all.

    Last summer I borrowed a Kawasaki 300 and that hull completely maxed out my trailer. Winch tower fully forward, the Kawasaki still stuck out the back a few extra inches. And the bow roller was unable to reach up to the rub rail.

    Last year or the year before Triton again updated their PWC trailer models and the new winch tower is even more adjustable in both front-rear distance and bow roller heights.

    Back in 1998 the 'Lite' models were only recommended for two seat and stand up watercraft. Only 1315 pounds load weight for the dual.

    The trailer info sticker says it can hold 2200 with right tires. I've got 145r12's e load(overkill) so I should be good with capacity. It's just the length that feels not quite there.

    I'm sure it wouldn't be cheap, but are the newer winch towers available for individual purchase?

    Well, just call Triton and ask them. When I looked at the new current model it looked like the improved winch tower and dual slide support rail would retrofit onto my 2008, but I did not actually measure.

    If you can put the upgrade winch tower money towards upgrading to a current Triton trailer model that would give you an excellent base to work from.

    Keep in mind that your 2002 trailer tires, if they have not yet been replaced, are very overdue. My recommendation is to replace trailer tires as soon as they are more than five years old. Six years and beyond becomes a high risk gamble. I blew out a tire last summer, tread looked like new even the morning of the failure.

    Having nothing but Tritions, (2&4 place) I am partial to the best trailer in the industry... I have a 05 Trition ELITE WC II. The GVWR on it is 2500# w/ ST145x12 radials..
    I have a 04 RXP and 98 GSXL piggybacking on it and very good I will say.. At any speed on the road.
    My RXP sits on the very edge of the bunks (see pics) and the winch slide a little over 1/2 up to the front. The engine sits right on the axles..
