    Default Trailer recommendations.

    So, I'm in the market for a new trailer. Probably a 2 place but open to 3 place. Been looking other Triton tc 128. What would you guys recommend. Must be at least a 12'

    I've had 12' clamshell and 2 different 27' in lines. I definitely like the inline trailers better. I've triton, lightning and cargo express. Can't say any trailer brand has been better then the other. I'd go with whatever you can get a decent price on.

    Take a look at the NEO NAS series either flat or round top. I just picked one up this season going from a 12 ft triton clam, but my Triton had the ramp you had to move from front to back to load/unload. I enjoy being able to see around the NEO inline and how nicely it pulls behind the truck. Plus you can customize to your liking such as plus 6" height if you ever want to haul a side by side or something taller. Many different sizes and options to build to your preferences.

    I had the TC 128 and liked it enough. But it was wide as noted and the rear ramp door is very heavy. It sucked to haul empty as all the weight was in the rear.
    Otherwise it was well worth the $5kishi that I paid.

    I have since upgraded to a 7.5' x 18'+5' inline Neo. Love that!

    I'd rather pull an inline any day. For me they r handier for other applications also

    I've got a TC 167. (7 x 16) Like it a lot. I like being able to see around 7 foot trailer. Light to pull, even empty pretty well balanced. 2 sleds and more than you'd ever need for gear/supply storage. Great price point for enclosed (hybrid) trailer around 5k

    If I were to get another 2 place, this would be the one. Nice handy side door on them as well.

    Go inline and you will never go back. They just pull so much nicer.

    100% agree on the TC167 and would highly recommend. Pulls super easy and can see around it just fine with stock mirrors. With two sleds loaded there is still lots of room for gear, etc. I think you could possibly cram three in there if you were really determined. And you just can’t beat the ease of the rear ramp door. Can have both sleds loaded and on your way in under 5 minutes. Only thing I would say is REVERSE for sleds is much preferred as you have to push them out the back otherwise (no riding out the front). But that also keeps the length of the trailer down, so I’ll take it.

    Agree. I have had two Legend 21' inlines. Never knew they were behind my truck and only having two sleds in there gave me room to work on them inside the trailer. A year ago I bought a Legend two place hybrid. Pulls like my F350 diesel has a parachute behind it and the skis hit the outside rail and touch each other in the middle. Working on the sleds inside, limited, and I keep standing up and hitting head on roof (mine has the lifted roof).

    Have owned a 23' (18 + 5') NEO inline trailer for the past 5 years & really like it. Like others have stated the inline trailers are nice because you can see around them while towing & backing up. Barely know the thing is back there. One of the things I like the most about the NEO brand trailers is the single latch located in the middle of the doors. Much handier than the having a bar on each side that tends to rust.

    Being a past Dealer I have had em all, many brands too.
    Triton is obviously one of the top brands and you will pay for it. Their are a ton of knock-offs of the TC-128 trailer now. Best time to buy one is spring/summer as a leftover, maybe a new (Sno-Pro) non-Triton for $3,999 with no ski-guides or mats (if you look hard).

    Variables; how far do you tow, what is tow vehicle, budget, how long will you keep it and are you using for something other than sleds in the summer?
    If it is only 2 sleds go for a clamshell (light and cheap, hold their value but useless in the summer).
    If you also have a UTV, forget the clamshell but get the 6'6 interior height or they wont fit. 7 foot wide is good.

    Only you will know based on the questions above.
    FYI; if you can wait, go to the Milwaukee Snow Show in the fall and buy a trailer that a dealer doesn't want to haul back on the last day of the show (save $500 easy).

    So far, I love my TC-167. They are closer to $6K than $5k these days. Over 6K by the time you add the accessories.

    I have a buddy who has the same latch and loves it. But there are pro's and con's to any system (not to say this one is bad). However, he has failed to push the latch back in the nested ramp prior to putting the ramp down, and damaged it each time. When it is your own trailer, most likely you will remember each time. But if a buddy opens it...….

    I have the latch on each side. I like this for two reasons. One, when I am driving, I can see in my mirrors if I latched or not. The second thing, there is redundancy with one on each side. Again, not that the single latch is bad, just not my preference.

    Damn good point. I have the single bar in the middle and try to give the door a tug after closing it.
    Yeah...never trust a buddy.

    For only another $1000 or $1200 I’d buy the Triton hybrid over the craigslist one above as well. It’s another story with the inlines. The top shelf trailer manufacturers are really proud of their inlines. The difference between a Neo or an R&R or a Stealth, compared to a Triton or Legend, is multiple thousands of dollars.

    Neo really hits a sweet spot between features/design/appearance and price, that’s for sure. I’ve thought about just picking up a spec Triton hybrid from a dealer this winter, but I think I’m going to figure out exactly what options I want and order a Neo inline this off-season. I tow a long ways on sled trips, and I’m just burnt out on the parachute effect of the clamshells/hybrids.

    I agree all the way! Yes I like Triton too, but I will go with the NEO! A very well built trailer!
