Trailer suspension- Timbren Silent Ride Suspension

Anyone ever used one of these? Thoughts or concerns?

I am torn between installing the Timbren Silent Ride on the trailer or changing out the equalizers to a Morryde CRE3000. Got to figure out a way to make the trailer ride smoother. Shocks would be an option as well but think these could have a greater impact than the shocks.

What trailer, what's on it now? I have the Timbren bump stops on my truck & haven't seen/heard of them for trailers. On the larger 5ers like mine they've been using the MorRyde 4000 with great luck.
I would recommend if you're tearing it apart anyway to order the MorRyde heavy shackles with wet bolts, it's a great upgrade & on my 5er 2/3 of the spring/equalizer bushings were plastic & worn out in 4-5k miles, the kit comes with enough bronze bushing to replace all on your rv.

Just looked up the Timbren Silent Ride system, WOW, looks like a major suspension overhaul, looks like a great system just not something I think I'd want to do laying on my back in the driveway. I know for sure you could do the MorRyde swap (& the shackles I mentioned) in a 3-4 hours.
The 2 systems are 2 totally different approaches to the same end result. One looks like lot of work & expensive, the other much easier install & most likely 1/2, or less, the price.
Also curious as to how/why you think your trailer rides too rough?

My first trip was a little over 4100 miles with the trailer. Its a 2017 SS264BH. I just noticed how rough it rode when pulling and as well every time I got into the trailer after 400-500 miles crap would be everywhere. Meaning the ride is a little rough inside. The MorRyde would be a breeze to put on but was wondering if anyone had ever seen the TImbren in action. Im leaning towards that being a better option possibly. Or its the MorRyde with shocks. I have witnessed shocks being added to a bass boat trailer and it made a noticeable difference.
