Shock Absorbers

Has anybody installed shock absorbers on their fiver. Just got back from 12 day trip around Florida, Georgia and South Carolina and the potholes cry for shocks on the trailer.

Interesting idea. It shouldn't be a difficult task.

Do you have the equa-flex suspension on your trailer?
I installed it on ours and the ride has improved dramatically. I think they went to that instead of shocks.

Here's a link to a website that shows how it's done.

But Lloys' idea is good too.

Jim I had 2004 CR Cruiser 27RK that had the rear kitchen, I had to fix the drawers slides many time over the three years we owned it. When we purchased the 2011 CR Cruiser 31rk it had the equa-flex suspension and what a difference it made, haven't had to fix any thing related to the suspension. Appears to me the equa-flex suspension would be easy bolt on fix.
