I have a 2 place Triton that tilts with a cap the open from the front (useless except to work on sleds in the trailer which I never do) and rear. It has a flat top that has to be shoveled or swept in order to open the top which really sucks if there is alot of snow (which definately does not suck!). The top is very heavy and the struts don't hold it open unless the top is totally cleaned off. In other word I hate the thing except that it does a great job keeping the sleds clean.
My next trailer will have doors that open and a ramp that stores in a protected area (not under the trailer unless its protected from the elements). No more lift tops!
I traded My 2 place tilt this year for a R&R 4 place 3 axle. All aluminum and stainless. it's only 6' wide but about 30' long. Holds 4 sleds tools. I even carry a small salamander heater for it. Pulls fine with My 1/2 ton GMC. Gas millage has been a little less but not a lot it's very light and cuts through the wind like a knife. It's a mobile Cathouse on wheels!!!!!!!
I've always had an open 2 place tilt bed trailer. But when I bought these 2 new sleds this year I bought an enclosed 2 place tilt bed Triton. Its the best thing I ever did. They stay so much cleaner now, and no frozen canvas covers to wrestle with! I was going to get a V nose enclosed drive on drive off but decided to wait until next time. I found them for only about $200 more than my tilt bed on eBAY, but it meant driving to Detroit to get it.
h34r: Just upgraded to an R&R two sled enclosed V nose, custom made. Only 6 wide, but 21 ft long. Previous was 2 place tilt enclosed. Got tired of wrestling the sleds off. Great investment and store sleds in the summer in it.Finished the inside all off and added cabinets.
