Recommended Timbren Axle-Less Suspension To Replace 3500lb Axle On 2019 Forest River R-Pod 179  


Is there a Timbren axle-less replacement for the Forest River Rpod 179? I think the OEM axle is a 3500 lb Lippert.


Expert Reply:

The Timbren Axle-Less systems are all universal, and since they bolt directly to the frame of the trailer can be used on any trailer including your 2019 Forest River R-Pod 179.

Based on the information I can find on your R-Pod it appears that you are correct in thinking the OEM is a 3500lb axle.

For a 3500lb replacement I recommend the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Straight Spindle Only - 3,500 lbs # ASR3500S05. This will allow you to reuse your current braking assemblies as it has the standard 3500lb # L68149 and # L44649 bearing combination.

The Timbren Axle-Less will be quite the upgrade over your current axle due to the built in AEON main spring that does a great job of absorbing road shock to give you a smooth ride.

I included a video of the # ASR3500S05 for you to take a look at.
