    They weren't when I purchased my single place Triton. I believe they are an option.

    I dont know what the issue is, I have no issues with my st3 and t3 hulls on my elite. Bunk brackets are set to top setting. No need to double bunk or make risers, i drive on and off and never touched a cross member.

    Doubling the thickness of the wood bunks makes for a much stiffer bunk. It may conform to the hull shape less and have less flex when the trailer is bouncing over hard bumps.

    The taller/thicker bunk also changes to pivot dynamics of the bunk support bolt underneath. I have had double thickness bunks 'roll over' unexpectedly during loading when the hull pushed hard on a bunk, or the hull was misaligned to the bunks and pushed the bunk sideways.

    To compensate I have used doubled 2x3 wood (so a little less stiff than double 2x4), which works 'ok' but more recently I fabbed up a set of aluminum 2 inch bracket lifts, similar to my description. Photo shows one of the lifts I made.

    Used the trailer that way for hundreds of miles. No significant issues.

    Triton also has bunks available with an aluminum L-bracket to stiffen the bunk.

    TJK, the RXP (T3) has a deeper V than the RXT, (ST3).
    gotcha. I figured the 18 rxp was the st3. Or at least similar V.
