Types of Jet Ski Trailers
There are two main types of jet ski trailers: single-place trailers and multi-place trailers. Single-place trailers are designed to carry one jet ski, while multi-place trailers can carry two or more jet skis.
The width of a jet ski trailer can vary depending on the type of trailer and the number of jet skis it is designed to carry.
The Triton Wave single trailer is incredibly slim at a width of 55 inches. Not that it could manage a lot of weight! We would advise only the smallest of PWC’s be loaded onto a Wave.

Standard Jet Ski Trailer Width
The standard width of a single-place jet ski trailer is around 96 inches, which is equivalent to 8 feet. Multi-place jet ski trailers are limited to 102 inches by law.
However, it is important to note that some manufacturers may have different widths, so it is essential to check with the manufacturer to ensure you have the correct width for your needs.
Double Jet Ski Trailer Width
The maximum width of a jet ski trailer being limited by US regulations really limits how dual jet ski trailers can be built.
Trailers go longer rather than wider!
The law which state a trailer cannot be wider that 102 inches means that the 102 inches is the average size of a double jet ski trailer and anything bigger.
