Red face random thought

As I have been watching The back of my dads Camper bounce down the road the question comes to mind why do we not put shocks on trailers


Is it just a cost???

There's a thread for random thoughts already.

Most likely just added cost from the trailer company.

Go to air ride trailer

I have heard of folks adding shocks. I guess it helps allot and keeps things from bouncing around near as much, go figure.

I've torn down some old trailers that had shocks.
My old Holsclaw boat trailer has them. And coil springs. And both are shot!

Some type of living quarters that bounces behind you when you drag it about.

Got a few up at Grand haven, biggest one I couldn't shut the lid on my 24" cooler due to its tail hanging out. No official weight or measurement though but I'd guess 35ish inches and around 6-7lbs.
