Will Timbren Axle-Less System Allow Lower Deck Height on Trailer?

Question:

Im working on a design to build a small camper trailer similar to a tear. My trailer deck will be 5 foot wide, 10 foot long, and 20-1/4 inch above ground. Id like to reduce it to about 10-12 inch above ground. The max weight of the trailer with contents would be well under 1500 lbs. Can Timbren Axleless suspension units be mounted in such a way as to reduce the height of the trailer deck? I would need a set with hubs and brakes, and I plan to use 14 inch radial tires with a diameter of about 25.5

There is a Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System which will allow you to lower your deck height, though it won't give you quite the amount you are looking for. The Timbren # A35RD545E has a 4 inch drop spindle so it will lower your deck height by that much. This system comes with electric brakes and hubs with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. You would be able to use a wheel and tire combination such as the Taskmaster # AC14R45SM which have 14 inch wheels and a total diameter of 26.1 inches. I've added links to video reviews of both products for you to take a look at.

Question:

Do you have an equivalent to item #A35RD545, but with a 2000 lb capacity? Im looking for axle-less, axle with hubs, no brakes, 2000 lb.

There is not an exact equivalent available to # A35RD545E, but you could use the Timbren # ASR2KHDS05, which is an axle-less system with a 2,000 lb capacity and no brakes. It does not have hubs but does work with hub and drum assemblies # # 84546UC3-EZ which you could get separately. I've added a link to a review of these assemblies for you to take a look at.
