Timbren Axle Less System, Hubs, Assemblies and Wheels for Camper Trailer  


Hi, I have a flatbed trailer that is 12 ft Long x 6 ft wide, and I have a box style camper that is 7 ft wide riding on top. So camper over hangs the edge by 3 inches on each side. Currently the axle is a mobile home axle which is way too stiff. Id like to convert to an axle that will give as smooth a ride as possible on gravel and forest roads as well as highway and interstate. The trailer is about 600 lbs and camper is 1600 lbs. I like the idea of the Timbren system, and seems like a 3500lb system is appropriate. What are your thoughts? Id like to add ebrakes. What wheel and tire would you recommend? Can you create a parts list for me to order including Timbren axleless system, hub, brakes, wheels, and tires? Anything Im missing?


Expert Reply:

The Timbren Axle Less system part # ASR35HDS05 that you referenced would be the way to go for what you are looking for. It's the appropriate capacity, will be smoother than what you have, and since it doesn't have a beam that runs across and has a 4 inch lift built into it would work great in an off-road setup.

You would need the 6 on 5-1/2 Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # 8-201-9UC3-EZ to use this particular system. For brake assemblies part # AKEBRK-6, and for wheels you'd need something with a 6 lug bolt pattern like the # LHAW124 and you'd be set.
