I have a 7 x 14 and love it. It is a very well built trailer that tow's extremly well. You can fit 2 newer sleds in and I collect vintage snowmobiles, 4 of these will fit. I think it was well worth the money.

Bought a new 18x7 three years ago - Best sled related "investment" I've ever made.

I have the PR 147 and its loaded, I think I paid around 10K it seems to be a good trailer but I think there a little high on the pricing. I would have liked to get an 8 foot wide so I could get 2 sleds side by side

The in-floor spare didn't sound good to me at 2 AM in the middle of Wyoming unloading a trailer full of sleds and gear in 40 MPH winds with horizontal snow.

The train track is exactly what it sounds like -- Imagine two parallel train tracks for the skis on either side of the trailer with a railroad switch to change from one side to the other as one enters the v-nose.

If you have not bought trailer yet, call advantage trailer in carol stream IL. They just gave me quote of around $7500 out the door, on a brand new ATC 3 place inline with most the extras. The triton was 3g more for the same thing. I have been calling all over everywhere and they had best price in and out of state. Don't get me wrong triton is a good trailer I even own one but big difference in price.

I have a Prestige also. Love it! I insulated it and have a lp heater also. Works great if a sled breaks! No problem getting it to 70!! Sleds stay nice and clean and no messing with covers!! Great place to store them during the summer also!!

I bought a new Triton Prestige 147 in November of 2007. Best investment I made for snowmobiling. I have the side access door, spare tire mounted on the wall by the side access door, finished interior walls, 8 inch slides on the floor, spring assisted front and rear doors, door flaps,upgraded wheel package, and quick slide tie downs. Electric brakes on one axle. I mostly only have two sleds in the trailer, but I do annual trip with the father in law which means three sleds. Took an couple of hours to figure out but I can get 3 sleds to fit. The sleds are a 2009 Polaris Dragon SP, a 2006 Polaris Classic with M10, and a 2008 Ski-Doo XP 600 SDI. With 3 sleds there is plenty of room for gear bags, extra tools, and storage containers with oil. I get 15 miles to a gallon pulling the loaded trailer along with 3 people in my 2004 GMC Denali 6.0. I live in Northern Illinois but went up to the Triton Distributor in Kewauskum Wisconsin, Lakeside Service, talk to Dave he is a great guy. He is always at the Milwaukee show, and I know he goes to other shows. In all I got the trailer for a little over $10K, at first I felt that was a little steep, but after the first trip with the trailer, it was the best investment I made besides buying my first sled and getting into this sport.

hey beavers33, could you give me a hint on how to fit 3 sleds in. I havn't tried yet but it seems that 2 take up a quite of bit of room. I have a 2010 Polaris turbo dragon, one buddy has a 2006 Polaris Fusion, and the last would be 2006 Arctic Cat F6. Any ideas? Thanks
