    If you can get an aluminum for close to the same price as galvanized, go with aluminum.

    I have 2 Yamaha FX skis and I bought a triton. Works great easy to lube the bearings and the torsion axle is awesome. I am in San Diego so im almost all saltwater aluminum was the way to go. If you go with longer 3 seaters they may hang off the back a bit even if you adjust it. Also the elite II is a long trailer it accommodates a full spare on the tongue. On the negative side the welded in tie downs are not aluminum they rust. Also the jack is crappy the top gear snapped off inside, easy fix but annoying. I would recommend it over all the box, gas rack, and spare really round it out.

    Can you post some photos of the rusted factory tie down points on your aluminum Triton double trailer?

    Every Triton PWC Trailer I have seen has aluminum tie down hoops welded to the aluminum trailer frame rear cross member.

    I prefer the Fulton F2 series trailer tongue jack. Much nicer than the typical steel tongue jack. The dual wheel model works well for rolling around.



    At the rear of my Triton trailer I replaced the factory mounted ratchet straps with frame attached Boat Buckle G2 stainless, with 2 inch wide strap. Much more secure tie down. The Triton factory supplied ratchets tend to rust internally and fail within a year or so.

    I've got an electric jack from Northern Tool on my trailer: https://www.northerntool.com/shop/to...5144_200685144 I paid a lot less for it than what's shown. I have a storage box on the front of the trailer and put a small battery in there to run it. The place that I kept the trailer at while on vacation last year made it necessary to crank the trailer all the way up and all the way down, twice a day--and it didn't take long to get tired of that!

    Guess I'm going to have to replace my Boat Buckles, as I had one of the ratchets break today...

    Hey, K447, are those depth gauges hanging out the back of your 'Skis?
