Best double place "low-boy" trailer ?
I really like the Trition trailers. Very well built, and pull nicely, BUT they sit the skis a little too high for my liking.
I ride mainly in brackish water so painted is a no go, probably not good for a powder coated one either. I'm mostly looking for an aluminum one, or perhaps a galvanized.
So what do you recommend for a "low-boy" style?

I think most 2 place are going to ride high because of the width restrictions (so skis have to sit above tires)

The trailer crossframe is curved but the top of the fender still defines the limit as to how high the hull must sit. The outer portion of the hull overhangs the fender.
If smaller diameter tires are mounted then the fender can be positioned lower relative to the trailer frame, but that is the only method I am aware of for 'lowering' the bunks and hence the hull to ground distance on a double PWC trailer.

Here is the manufacturers site. They do offer galvanized and I emailed them for pricing. This model is only 100" wide.
This looks to still sit the skis lower to the ground than the Triton does, which will make for easier floating, and maintenance.

These DO have 13" tires, and have a cradle design. I'm sure the rubrail will land over the fender, but the hulls slope or angle up, so that shouldn't be much concern.

I don't want to lower the COG on *that* trailer, i'm just looking for other trailers that a similar in design. Most of the doubles I have seen are using straight frames, which sit the skis higher. Even 6" of drop is noticeable.
Even these sit low, and the trailers have a lot more parts to them. Too bad I can't find anyone in my region that sells them.
