Suspension Needed for a 1973 Trillium Travel Trailer


Hi , We own a 1000 # 13 foot trailer made in 1973. It does not have a suspension at all and wonder if we should add one and if so what type? thanks,


Expert Reply:

Adding suspension to your trailer is definitely beneficial as it helps to reduce stress on the frame. The most common type of suspension system for a trailer is one that uses leaf springs. To install this you would need a hanger kit like part # APS4 and then leaf springs like part # SP-169275 which are used if you have an axle diameter of 1-3/4".

We also carry the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension Systems like part # A12RS440 which includes hubs that have a 4 on 4" bolt pattern. I like to recommend these because they are much easier to install than a hanger kit and leaf springs plus they require less maintenance. There is a price increase included with this though.

If you can send me a picture of the axle on your 1973 Trillium trailer I can help you determine which would be the best setup for you.
