Can a Timbren Axle-Less Suspension Be Added To a Single Axle Trailer Creating a Tandem Axle Trailer?


I have a single axle trailer that I would like to make into a tandem trailer . Can I just add timbren axle less suspension to the trailer to make it tandem?


Expert Reply:

I do not recommend converting a single axle trailer to a tandem axle by adding the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension # ASR1200S04. This will give you 2 different suspension systems that will not work correctly together. Since your current suspension will react differently than the Timben suspension.

If you have a straight axle that is mounted with leaf springs a system like the Timbren Silent Ride Suspension # TSR4000T03 would be the one I recommend. This particular system will allow you to mount the unit to the trailer and then use 2 round straight axles that are 2-1/2" in diameter. If you can provide me information on your current axle I can help you to identify the correct suspension system and 2nd axle.
