How To Find Correct Timbren Axle-Less System for 7K Trailer with Mobile Home Axles


My 30+ year old homemade welded/bolted I-beam boat trailer ~7,000 lb. load w/ trailer used dexter mobile home axles in 3inch steel tubes. There is no suspension, brakes, or fenders. Used for short hauls to and from boat yard on-road. Trailer is grandfathered street legal but any inspection would immediately fail due to weight and lack of brakes. What is my best cost-effective option for replacing current axles to add suspension, brakes, fenders. I Like the idea of Timbren products, but need help choosing right ones. How difficult is it to get proper alignment in installation?

The mobile home axles are a one time use so we don't really carry parts for them and the old design would make it very hard to find much of anything for. The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System would indeed be the best option for a complete setup, there are many options though. For a 7K trailer, two 3,500 lb axles would give you plenty of support since another 10-15% will be supported on the vehicle tongue. The part # ASR3500S05 is for a 3,500 lb axle and comes with a straight spindle (no rise/drop). It can be paired with the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-35-SA and Easy Grease Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K for a complete setup.

I have attached our wheel/tire selection below as well as our fenders you can look through.
