No experience with that one but I have a Thorn Trident triplet which is a good machine.

How much did your Thorn Trident cost ?

I think it was £1200 on ebay a few years years ago. Second hand but it has obviously hardly been used. They come up on ebay and tandem club for sale board from time to time. Or new here http://www.sjscycles.com/thornpdf/ThornTridentBroHiRes.pdf 

£2000. 

I think its a good thing to buy second hand as they rarely to many miles. Ive modified mine with drop handlebars and cantilever brakes.

thats  a pretty cool triple is it possible for them to paint it in canary yellow or only black or red ? those are the only options i see on the form.

We have had a Pedalpower Classic steel tandem for 10 years and the quality is excellent. The bikes are all hand built in Berlin. The only thing that ever broke was a DS Swiss rim, but its has done thousands of KM over rough German cycle tracks off-tarmac.
