I have the double TI trailer and I understand the only difference is it's 9" wider cross bars (8' wide), same length.

Also, it seemed, the TI trailer was a LOT more expensive than the AI trailer. My dealer was told it was because it included both crossbars (AI & TI), but if it did, Trailex then shorted my dealer his AI cross bars for his AI trailer ordered with it. Also, the shipping was 4x what was quoted by Hobie, again, supposedly because of the extra set of longer bars. For the 9" difference, I think I could have made due with the AI double trailer.

It is a nice trailer, well designed, and assembly (I assembled it) was easy once I found the CD included and printed out the instructions from among a dozen files.


This is a big help. Thanks for the info. It sounds like the best decision for a TI and Adventure (not AI) would be the Double and if I ever upgrade the Adventure to an AI, I may still have enough width to make it work. I don't have pricing on either trailer yet, but it makes sense that the smaller traler would cost less and shipping would be lower too.

I bought the DBL/DBL cause there might be another TI in the future. But if that does not ever happen the trailer is overkill and the smaller trailer would work just fine.

Page 28 shows the TI on the new cradles on the single trailer.


Which trailer is that? It appears to be the single trailer, but it has a suspension. It could be the double trailer with a single cradle mounted in the center, but then the crossbars would be longer.

I believe it's the singe trailer because the hull is centered over the trailer with no rails extended beyond the cradles and the tires are just under the outside edge of the cradles. Must be the single.
