    Bought a new 2018 Triton WC-2

    Bought a new Triton WC-2 double ski trailer today with the Torsion suspension, always wanted one and finally just decided to do it.

    Got a good price and traded in a nice Shorelandr painted double trailer in on it.

    Dealer in Cartersville Ga. did a nice job setting it up and transferring skis over with a lift and adjusting the bunks.

    Pulled it home and it pulled like a dream.

    Merry Christmas to me!

    I added a number of upgrades to my Triton single axle double (since sold).

    I thought I had posted a thread somewhere showing many of the changes

    Anyways, here is what I did for storage.

    I am going to buy/mount a tongue toolbox but am not sure about drilling aluminum?
    Seems like Triton shows some kind of Ubolt/clamp setup?

    I drilled and thread tapped the aluminum frame to hold the plastic storage box shown on my trailer. Flat aluminum spacers were cut to shape and positioned as needed to keep the box level and no air gaps between box bottom surface and the trailer frame.

    U-bolts are ok, but I wanted to use stainless steel hardware as much as possible. This also allowed me to avoid having threaded u-bolt ends sticking up into the bottom of the box.

    Many trailer boxes are mounted dead center over the tongue. I offset my box to one side so I could easily move between the skis and not be climbing around the box. The lid opens to the side rather than forward so no straddling the tongue while rummaging for stuff inside.

    Merry Christmas and Congratulations!

    We are picking-up our new Elite W.C.-2 after the New Year, also!
    Our dealer is a great gent to deal with in Denver, North Carolina and after giving it some consideration, the W.C.-2 seemed the right “balance” for our typical couple miles from storage to ramp and back twice a year, with torsion axle (thanks again to everyone in a previous thread discussion about spring v. torsion!), 13” aluminum wheels, rear ratchet straps, 6” wider and 6” longer than the LT series and aluminum walkboard in between skis and a spare.

    Going to read those add’l threads K447, if not to mount a box anytime soon then, at least to start using a back up strap in the front of each ski bow eye ...

    Now, to put a roadside wheel and tire-change-out kit together, to keep in the tow vehicle (at least til I can get a storage box mounted) ...

    ...
    The frame attached rear ratchet straps Triton provide, unless something has changed very recently, are one of the few disappointing aspects. The internal retraction spring mechanism, hidden inside a plastic cover, is very susceptible to rusting and is difficult to keep lubricated. The metal handle is easily bent, not a good thing when the ratchets are mounted low on the very rear of the frame.

    On my WC2-2 (dual axle) the factory ratchet straps were becoming balky and difficult to operate within the first three months of use, in fresh water. I managed to spray lubricate the internal springs and they worked ok again (but not great). It became clear to me that they were not going to last for multiple years.

    My recommendation is to remove the Triton factory installed rear ratchet straps as soon as you get the trailer home, and perhaps sell them, still new.

    On my own trailer, and what I recommend, I have installed the Boat Buckle model G2 Transom Strap, in stainless steel. The 2 inch wide version. Much, much better ratchet strap, easy to operate, strong. And likely to last a lot longer.

    http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthre...=1#post2973101

    I use the same stainless G2 ratchet strap as my safety strap for the bow eye. This arrangement has been on the trailer for two summers and all are working well (six in total, three for each watercraft).

    Boat Buckle also sells the G2 in non-stainless, but I prefer the expectation of stainless G2 longevity despite the extra cost. The G2 transom straps are sold in sets of two. The G2 is also sold individually as a ‘bow strap’. Same product, as far as I can tell. Sometimes Amazon sellers will discount the G2 double set, sometimes the G2 singles.

    http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthre...=1#post2926240

    Note: The mounting bolts that came with a couple of the G2 stainless sets were terrible. They all thread galled and seized upon first partial tightening, and I had to cut the bolts off with an angle grinder. Replaced with locally sourced good quality stainless steel bolts, and no further trouble. Stainless Nyloc nuts and washers, of course.
