Does 1,200 lb Timbren Axle Less System Require Frame Cross Beam  


will the timbren 1200 lb with hub be sufficient for a motor cycle trailer and just using the bolts and no cross beam. its going to be a bed trailer.


Expert Reply:

For the Timbren axle less system part # A12RS440 Timbren states that the system may require additional support on your trailer. If your trailer does not have a crossmember above the spot where you want to install the Timbren system, you may need to reinforce the frame. You can accomplish this three ways. First, you can retrofit the trailer with a crossmember. Second, you can build out the trailer frame. Third, you can use standard, 2-inch steel tubing to connect the 2 Timbren suspensions together using the built-in square hole on each unit.

It's not so much that the Timbren will benefit from the cross beam as much as the trailer will so you'd have to keep that in mind.
