    PWC Trailers - Galvanized or Aluminum ?

    Got a question guys.

    I am getting ready to purchase a new double trailer.

    I want a Triton Elite Aluminum, but I know a regular Galvanized Shorelander, Sportsman or McClain will do.

    My question is, have any of you that own aluminum trailers have had them "crack" ? I have heard an instance or two where people have mentioned theirs have cracked.

    I aknow also that in the long run the Triton has a better resale value also vs. the Galv.

    cost wise, I am also basically looking at:
    1200 galv - McClain
    1400 galv - Shorelander or Sportsman
    1750 alum - Triton

    Singles I can find used all day long...the used doubles are scarce
