Suspension Upgrade

I would like to know if anybody has had any experience with a MORryde suspension upgrade? Experiences positive or negative welcome. I am talking about this as related to a travel trailer. Thanks in advance.

We had the MoreRyde IS independent suspension installed on our trailer when it was 6 months old because we had a number of frame and axle problems the last of which was the cheap flimsy spring hangers tearing off the frame the MoreRyde is so much better in many ways it actually ties the frame together and strengthens it, the ride is FAR superior and the hydraulic disk brakes stop the rig 10 times faster making it much safer !Click image for larger version

How much does the set up cost? Looks great but might cost more then I paid for my trailer.

If you travel very much with your trailer it's the best upgrade you can do!

Just bought a new 5'er. That option with 17 1/2" tires on a two axle RV cost me 8 grand.

I would like better brakes, I hope my axels and wheels are ok. I know I need new quality tires to replace my China tires.
