What I like better than the products are the people and support received from EVERYONE I have talked to at etrailer. If Forest River was half this good, I might buy another one, but most of the questions or problems I have come across with our fifth wheel have been solved by someone here after talking to a generic moron at the manufacturer. eTrailer ROCKS!!!

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Along with the new springs....everything works as advertised. Well satisfied. No complaints. I had to modify the one set of shock brackets to fit, as I have raised the trailer 5 inches to match up with the 4 inch raised truck. Otherwise...no swaying....no bouncing........no problems. Thanks etrailer for your help.


Comments
Great. On a 32 ft. WildCat fifth wheel..No problems. In the driveway, I installed the Shock system, heavier springs. I had to modify the shock-to-frame brackets, as the trailer has been raised 5 inches. Along with the MorRyde Stabilizers the trailer tows like a dream. Be sure to have the wet bolt grease nipples pointing out to the side of the unit for easier access. Next project will be to replace the scary Magnetic Brakes with a hydraulic system. Thanks etrailer. Kudos to your wonderful support crew. It was just like calling my buddy next door.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


OMG! After having the trailer bottom out on the stock springs while traversing a RR crossing, this system has proven to be amazing. Returning from a VA campground I crossed multiple RR crossings and traveled some rough pavement. I found I had left a bottle of shower soap on the ledge in the shower! It was still there when I set up in my yard. Not possible with the stock suspension!


Comments
This was the best thing I could have done to make the 5th wheel experience a good one. Prior to installing failing to properly secure things in the trailer would not end well. After the install, items remained where they were last placed.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


So far so good on my 2015 Open Range 3X427BHS! Overall, the old suspension system was just rusted and worn out and the tires were a maximum of 1" apart, which made me really nervous while pulling. It was tough to remove, but nothing a little WD-40 and some praying couldn't fix! Installation was pretty straight forward using the included directions and [online video] University. Looking forward to seeing how it rides this weekend on our next trip.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


After 1 year we are still very pleased. Have about 5000 miles towing and it is a much better ride. Worth the money. Ride is much better. We did have it professionally installed. It's a pretty big project for a driveway mechanic

Continues to perform very well.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


We bought a new Grand Design 22 foot Travel Trailer and Ford Expedition Tow Vehicle. Even after we installed a Curt Trunnion Bar Equalizer Hitch, the trailer bucking was unbearable for long trips. It was so bad we were ready to sell the whole rig. The suspension of all travel trailers is sub-standard. We bought the Roadmaster RM-2450 Shock absorber kit and installed it ourselves. It made a WORLD OF DIFFERENCE in the ride! However, the installation was not easy for a 76 year old man. Thanks to a neighbor with a flat paved driveway and an extensive tool inventory, I got it done. You need pre-planning and high jack stands. Read the instructions and view some online videos before committing. Verify that there are no gas or water pipes next to the trailer frames. Determining the location of the upper shock frame bracket is tricky. This measurement sets the angle of the shock absorber, and has to be done BEFORE you lift the trailer and remove the wheels! You have to have the trailer loaded, the wheels on the ground and the tow vehicle connected. Then install one shock absorber from the bottom up and measure where the upper bracket sets on the frame. Then you can disconnect and lift the trailer up on jack stands and drill the frame holes. I was lucky that I was close to the IDEAL 35 degree angle on my trailer. I don't know what you would do if you are outside the 25 to 40 degree allowable range. The instructions say you have to get 12" long drill bits to drill into the bottom of the frame. There's not enough clearance to insert a standard drill between the springs and frame. Pushing the drill up overhead, and having the bit tight to the springs makes it almost impossible to get the holes straight. So when you drive the self tapping bolts into the holes it is very easy to strip them. A better solution is to have a low profile angle drill. Otherwise you'll be welding the brackets or glueing bolts. We also installed heavy duty shackles, wet bolts and bronze bushings while the trailer was up on the jack stands. You have to refer to other reviews for that. The Trailer Mfg. stock components are junk.

Great. We’ve towed all over the country about 13,000 miles, and we’re still pleased with the ride.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Just finished installing the Roadmaster shock system on my Momentum 398M tri-axle. The kit arrived well packaged and all items were included. The instructions that come with it are pretty straight forward and easy to understand. This would probably be a lot quicker install with some helping hands, but I did it by myself in about 6 hours. The hardest part of the entire setup is all of the overhead drilling, but with a little redneck ingenuity I was able to make that bearable. As far as this kit goes, the ordering process and the outstanding customer service from Angela W, etrailer.com rocks!! This could be the start of a wonderful relationship..

Still feel it is the best upgrade you can do short of going independent. Still a great product for the price.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Every towable RV should be equipped with these shocks at the factory especially those like us that have a rear kitchen! The ride difference before and after is 'shockingly' (pun intended...) better. No more broken dishes and I know all of the installed components in our 2021 Keystone Cougar 29RKS suffer less wear and tear, and damage from road travel. It also made our tow vehicle ride much better than before the shock install due to 'bucking' on the fifth wheel hitch when towing the -29RKS. These shocks have been the best upgrade/add-on we have ever added to our current RV and four others in the past. Do yourself (and your RV...) a favor and INSTALL THESE SHOCKS! You won't be disappointed.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Thank you for asking for a 1 year review as I never do them without enough test time. I have made several trips into western VA and West VA so have used the mountains and found it made a big difference in stability and bounce as advertised. No fault of the product but had I known I would have changed axles to next load level higher and kit to match. Instructions were pretty good, it does require some drilling through 3/16 steel 9/16" holes so having proper tools for job is essential. I got some trailer jack stands from [nationwide retailer] they provided safety at a reasonable cost. I highly recommend them.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


I pull a toy-hauler 5th wheel trailer between Alaska and the lower 48 through Canada twice a year. Much of the road is rough and caused me to break a leaf spring every trip. Since installing a shock absorber system and upgrading from 5-leaf to 6-leaf springs, I have so far eliminated suspension damages on the route.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Highly recommend adding these on your camper. We added them to our Grand Design 2400 BH which was a night and day difference in ride quality. This eliminated a lot of the porpoising, chucking and side to side roll that you sometimes get. I was amazed how much smoother of a ride pulling the camper is now. Running these shocks now in combination with the Road Armor Equalizers.

Still working great!

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


As always etrailer delivered a great product, complete and undamaged in record time. I received the Roadmaster -2460 shock kit for the suspension on my 2019 36 foot fifth wheel three days earlier than expected and completed the installation myself in approx. six hours. Anxious to take it down the road and see how much it has improved the ride in my coach. Great price, easy installation and good instructions for those mechanically inclined DIY's.


Comments
The Roadmaster - 2460 shock kit improved the ride in my 36 ft. fifth wheel, eliminating the rough ride and jarring we had been experiencing previously. We have traveled approximately 10,000 miles since the installation and are extremely happy with the performance.

Review from a similar Comfort Ride in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


I live in canada, the cost of the shock kit was xxx.xx Canadian cheaper than what I could buy it for in here even with the Dollar exchange and shipping, and I got it 7 weeks sooner than any other dealer I contacted here in Canada. The service from etrailer was excellent and the shock kit arrived on time as promised from UPS. Thank you etrailer for your excellent service, I especially liked the package tracking system. I was able to see the progress of my package from the time it was picked from the shelf to every step of the shipping process. I will purchase more from etrailer in the future now that I've experienced how easy the process is. *** If you are ordering from Canada insure you call etrailer and confirm the cost of Canadian to US exchange and the shipping cost. Remember that all figures are in US dollars.*** I have not yet installed the shock kit but I will update my review once it's installed and I've had a chance to pull the trailer.

I purchased this system for our 2018 Coachman Chaparral. We had noticed that it would sway after crossing bridges and especially when coming out of a curve or while turning. I found this system to be very helpful. I welded the mounting brackets to the frame of the 5th wheel and bolted the rest as instructed. I would recommend this product to anyone that wants to stabilize their RV. Thank you for allowing me to write a review.

I received the RoadmasterComfort ice Shock Kit today and have not had the opportunity to install the the kit at this time. However, upon opening the box of parts, I was impressed by the quality of the materials provided in the kit. That is a grand start, for good review of the Roadmaster Kit. Will provide more review once installed and tested. Thanks for the expedient shipment of the kit and the follow-up.

Well, all the shocks are installed. Working on my back is hard, not as easy to do stuff today as it was years ago but I got I done. Sharp drill bits and using the frame mounting plates as a guide was the key. However, I had so much dirt and metal bits in my hair I had to take my dogs flee comb to my head before I could shower. Now for the next project whatever that is. I’m sure I’ll think of something.

great product, I'm a fabrication/designer, well thought out and much better than the original factory suspension. I also added structural kickers to the suspension hangers to help side load generated while turning and not relying on the hangers for strength. I also replaced the original factory u bolts, might as well have all new going back on

  • Will Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shocks RM-2460 Fit A 2019 Forest River Sierra 357RE 5th Wheel Trailer?
    Based on the pictures you provided the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers for Tandem Axle Trailers - 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb Axle # RM-2460 will fit your 2019 Forest River Sierra 357RE 5th wheel trailer with tandem 7000lb Dexter axles.

Since there is not a Roadmaster Comfort Ride option for a single axle trailer I recommend the Lippert Bolt-On Shock Kit w/ Heavy Duty Gas Shocks - 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb (3") Axle # LC281281 which will fit your 3" axle perfectly.

If it is a triple axle you will also use the Add-On Kit # RM-2450-50. If instead you have tandem 3-inch axles you can use kit # RM-2460 and add part # RM-2460-50 for a triple axle setup.

    What you want to do is load your trailer about halfway so that your suspension will be sitting in the middle of fully loaded and dry for installing the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers # RM-2460. I confirmed this with my contact at Roadmaster. Please note that since you have a triple axle trailer you also need the Add-On Kit # RM-2460-50.

  • Recommended Bolt-On Shock Mount Kit For A 2022 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 7 195RB
    The correct kit will depend on the weight capacity and diameter of your axle, but we definitely have a couple options for you to look at. From what I could find about your 2022 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 7 195RB, the GVWR will be 3,995 pounds, so I definitely recommend double checking the axle capacity before going with one of these. With that out of the way, first we have the Lippert Bolt-On Shock Kit w/ Heavy Duty Gas Shocks # LC281255 for a 3,500 pound 2-3/8" axle or # LC281281 for a 5,200...

  • Best Fit Bolt-On Shock Kit for a 2019 Palomino Puma 5th Wheel Trailer
    For your 2019 Palomino Puma 5th Wheel Trailer, I recommend you use the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Kit part # RM-2460-50 instead of the Lippert Components Bolt-On Shock Kit part # LC281281. The reason for this is because the Roadmaster Kit is designed to be mounted on the inside and to the bottom of the frame rail.

  • Timbren Suspension Versus Shock Absorbers for Triple Axle Trailer
    All around, shock absorbers like the # LC281255 would provide a smoother ride than a rubber spring like the Timbren SES type system like # TTRA1032. You'll want to be sure to use the correctly rated system for your axle capacity. The # LC281255 you'd looked at is rated for 3500 lb axles, you'd need three of them. For a higher rated 5200-7000 lb axle, use # RM-2460 along with the # 2460-50 add-on.
