    Question New two place trailer for (2) FX HO Cruisers?

    I am looking at buying a new two place trailer for my (2) 2005 Yamaha FX HO Cruisers. The trailer I have now is a Shorelandr, don't know the year, and it sits very high and is really hard to launch and load. Also the skis only have about an inch between them and is a pain in the @$$ to get them on there right the first time.

    Does anyone know of a good two place trailer for my waverunners? I was thinking of one with a "cradle" design, but I can't find a reputable company that sells one. I will be using it in both fresh and salt water.

    I know this has been discussed before, I already used the "search" button. So don't harass me! There wasn't any good information about my situation.

    Can some of you with two 3-seaters post some pics of how much room is between the two of them when they are on the trailer? Thanks!

    I love the Triton trailers! I was looking at getting an Elite WC-II but it doesn't have a "cradle" design and I am worried I am going to have the same loading and unloading problems. My problem right now is the trailer sits too high and if I try to do a beach launch it is damn near impossible. If any of you have this trailer, do you have problems loading and unloading? Can you post some pics of how high the skis set on it? Thanks!

    I would be selling the old trailer if I do get a new one. I don't know how much I would sell it for. Once I find out if I am getting a new one I will let you know.

    Have you looked at the Extend A Hitch?


    The Triton Elite WC-2 frame height (top of frame rails to the ground) is 16-17", depending on which wheel size you have. I have 13" wheels.

    The bunks are adjustable for spacing and height, and sit about 4" above the frame, give or take. So say 20-22" from the ground to the bunk upper surface.

    You would need another 8-12 inches of water to float the PWC (maybe less if you can slide it off, winch it back on), so about 30 inches of water depth.
