Lifting and Improving Ride Quality on a 2001 Casita Liberty Deluxe 17 Travel Trailer Torsion Axle

Question:

Have a 2001 Casita liberty Deluxe 17 foot travel trailer. The Dexter axle is a square tube axle that is welded on, with the 10 degree up style. I would like to lift it 3inch if possible but that may involve changing the axle? My primary question is do you carry a bolt on shock kit for my model?

Expert Reply:

The best option for lifting your torsion axle and getting a better ride quality would involve changing over to a Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension. They have a couple options that will incorporate a lift right in the spindle. A 2" Lift # TASR35HDS07 or a 4" Lift # ASR3500S06. These utilize a rubber suspension system that each work independently of each other. This will offer you a better and smoother ride quality.

We do not carry any type of shock kits for torsion axle's like you have under your 2001 Casita Liberty Travel Trailer.

Question:

Yes looking at the Timbren set up. My wheels are 14", tires 75R14. It is a five bolt hub with 2 5/8 inch center to center. I would like to use the existing brakes and hubs if able to do so. My trailer has no leaf springs.

Your current hubs are a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension # ASR3500S06 will be the one most likely to fit your current hubs. To be sure you will need to compare with your current hubs/spindle.

The Timbren would use a Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84546UC3-EZ. It has a grease seal of 1.719" inner diameter, inner bearing of 1.378" inner diameter and outer bearing of 1.063 inner diameter. You can use a Digital Caliper # PTW80157 to confirm your measurements.

The Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35-SA will be the brake assemblies that you will want with the Timbren Suspension.
