Note: The Timbren Axle-Less suspension system may require additional support on your trailer. If your trailer does not have a crossmember above the spot where you want to install the Timbren system, you may need to reinforce the frame. You can accomplish this three ways. First, you can retrofit the trailer with a crossmember. Second, you can build out the trailer frame. Third, you can use standard, 2-inch steel tubing to connect the 2 Timbren suspensions together using the built-in square hole on each unit.


Ground Clearance

Ride on rubber with Timbren's Axle-Less trailer suspension system. This one-of-a-kind suspension consists of two separate units, each containing rugged steel arms and two strong, hollow rubber springs. Overall, the system safely and effectively absorbs road shock, minimizes trailer bounce and rattle - regardless of load size - and helps to protect your trailer's components and cargo. Built-in camber and toe-in keep your trailer tracking straight to minimize tire wear. Integrated hangers attach to your trailer's frame. And 2-inch holes make it easy to reinforce your trailer's frame by adding standard, 2-inch-square steel tubing (if needed).


The Axle-Less independent suspension system replaces your trailer's existing leaf spring suspension and can eliminate the need for an axle. The independent action of the suspension reduces roll when your trailer is cornering and allows you to maximize ground clearance and minimize deck height. Your trailer can have the same side-to-side clearance as your tow vehicle. And the low deck height makes it easy to load cargo from either the rear or the side.


Because you're riding on rubber, your trailer will ride smoothly and comfortably, whether you're navigating rocky terrain or highway asphalt.


Timbren Axle-Less Suspension Parts

Components

  1. The AEON progressive-rate main spring supports the weight of your trailer and cargo and easily absorbs road shock. It is constructed of heavy-duty, hollow rubber.
  2. The rebound spring minimizes trailer bounce, rattle and bottoming out. It keeps the suspension under constant tension and ensures that the main spring compresses and expands in a controlled fashion. And it delivers a smooth, stable ride - regardless of how much cargo is on the trailer.
  3. The trailing arm and integrated hanger attach the suspension to the side and bottom of the trailer frame.
  4. The control arm carries the spindle and the hub. It pivots on strong, long-lasting urethane bushings that never require lubrication.
  5. The EZ lube spindle is simple to grease. If damaged, it can be removed and replaced, saving you both time and money.
  6. The hub is not included with this model.
  7. The built-in square hole accepts standard 2-inch tubing. If there is no crossmember above the suspension, you can easily add support to your trailer's frame by inserting 2-inch steel tubing through the hole on each suspension unit and then bolting the tubing into place.

Timbren Axle-Less Suspension versus Leaf Springs

Leaf Spring Example

The Axle-Less suspension's progressive spring is a definitive upgrade over leaf springs. Although leaf springs deliver a stable ride when supporting a load, a trailer with leaf springs will bounce and rattle when it's empty or supporting a light or off-center load. On the other hand, your trailer can bottom out on bumpy roads if the load is too heavy. The AEON progressive-rate springs of the Axle-Less suspension always deliver the same reliable performance, no matter the load size. As more weight is added to the trailer, the springs compress and become stiffer, offering more support for heavy loads. And because they rebound more slowly than leaf springs, the AEON springs do a better job of absorbing road shock, thereby keeping your trailer from bouncing and rattling when you're carrying a light load. So with this versatile system you will enjoy a smooth ride whether you're towing an empty trailer or a hefty load.


Unlike leaf springs, Timbren's Axle-Less suspension units operate independently of one another. Each spring activates only when needed. This reduces roll and delivers top-notch performance, even when you're hauling off-center loads. When your trailer with leaf springs takes a turn, one side of the suspension compresses and takes on more weight, and the other side becomes looser and bounces. This causes rattle and can make the trailer lean to one side. But when your trailer with the Axle-Less suspension takes a turn, one side compresses and becomes more rigid to absorb the weight, and the other side expands to normal height to help steady the load and minimize bounce and rattle. The load stays better balanced, even if it is off-center.


Timbren Axle-Less Suspension versus Torsion Axles

Torsion Axle Example

Timbren's Axle-Less trailer suspension system is a great alternative to torsion axles. While both systems allow either side of the trailer's suspension to operate independently, only Axle-Less suspensions are actually separate units. Torsion axles still require a bar that spans the bottom of your trailer, whereas Timbren's system can eliminate the need for a thru axle - giving you the same amount of ground clearance from the front of your trailer to the rear. It also allows Axle-Less suspensions to fit any trailer width - unlike torsion axles, which have to be fitted to an exact frame width.


Axle-Less suspensions operate in a smoother, less stressful manner than torsion axles. Torsion axles use a twisting motion, where the bar inside the axle tube rolls against rubber cords or a rubber wall to create compression and resistance. The up-and-down motion of the main spring and the side-to-side motion of the rebound spring in Timbren's Axle-Less suspension work together to provide smooth, consistent compression - with no twisting - that results in a better ride and less stress on the suspension's components.


Installing the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension

Whether you are building a trailer or retrofitting your existing trailer with the Axle-Less system, you must make certain that the trailer's frame is both perfectly square and sturdy enough to support a heavy load without the aid of a thru axle.


Install Option 1

There are three ways to install the Axle-Less suspension. The easiest method, which is recommended if you are replacing axles on your trailer, is to install a piece of 2-inch-square tubing (sold separately - available at most weld shops) through the integrated hole in the Axle-Less suspension. Then all you need to do is bolt the suspension to the side of the trailer's frame with three bolts (not included).


Install Option 2

The second option for installation is to fabricate an inboard extension plate that attaches the trailer's frame to the Axle-Less suspension.


Install Option 3

The third method of installation is to bolt the Axle-Less suspension's hanger to the trailer's frame and to an existing crossmember that is in the area where you want to install the suspension.


With both the second and third options, you must use three bolts to attach the suspension to the side of the frame. And you also have to use two or three bolts to attach the suspension to the bottom of the frame extension, or crossmember. Both the second and third methods of installation will eliminate the need for a thru axle and provide the most clearance.


Measuring Diagram

Timbren's Axle-Less suspension units should be installed directly across from one another. Before mounting the units, measure back from the coupler and mark the frame to make sure that the two distance measurements (A and B) are within 1/8 inch of each other. Then you can drill holes through the frame and attach the hangers with Grade-5, half-inch bolts (not included).

This was a major project for me. My Little Guy 5-Wide teardrop trailer had a failing Al-Ko axle system. I didn't want to try to re-create that mess, and so looked into Timbren. Too many choices! However, once I worked my way through the selections, I ended up slightly downgrading the axle from 2200 lb to 2000 lb. I've had no issues, and the ride is far, far superior to the original. Installation involved cutting away the original axle bracket, bolting the Timbren to the frame, and adding the 2x2 tubing between the 2 axle sides. This made sure it wouldn't rack--I was concerned the original frame was pretty lightweight. I measured many, many times to make sure I had the axle in the right place, and it worked out just fine. Ride is almost identical to the original axle. I would do this again, but maybe get a bit more lift next time. I have pretty tight clearance from the tire to the fender. They do make a different model with more lift. This is a very beefy axle system. Great company. Oh, and I had a little mixup when I placed the original order with etrailer. I was only shipped one of the two required boxes. A few emails back and forth, and they sent me what I needed. Thanks for taking care of me!

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


I used these axles in a different way than most would. I needed a trailer that was small, could handle tight switch-backs, carry 600 lbs and be light. I had this idea and as a retired design engineer I saw a great possibility in this axle. I have made four of these trailers now, one as a camp trailer, 2 for trail work for State Parks and one as a utility trailer.

Really cool work!

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


The trailer rides great down the road and no more worries about saltwater and rusty leaf springs. Not a cheap option but I’m very happy with the setup. When installing, just be sure to measure accurately and have sharp drill bits. A drill press type of guide also helps ensure correct drilling angles. The first picture is of a mounting gusset a local welding shop made. One is needed for each side and necessary to provide needed mounting strength-at least on my trailer frame. Pics 2 and 3 show the mounted suspension on one side of the trailer. Pic 4 shows the suspension on one side of the trailer with the axle attached and a separately purchased disc brake assembly mounted on it. Finally, pic 5 shows a 2” box channel between both suspension assemblies. Independent suspensions would have been nice, but I wanted to ensure trailer rigidity was maintained. So, after one year, so far, so good. It’s all smooth sailing down the highway.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Very exicited about these axels, I have been eyeing these for over a year. (Excellent service from etrailer, they had my parts to me in 1 day from the time of placing the order.) These axles seem to be well made and fit nicely with the Dexter hub and drum assembly and the 12" electric brake kit. I installed this all on a M1101/M1102 trailer frame after removing the factory axel assembly. I have not ran these on the road or off as of yet but will give another review at that time. The fit and finish are great and the packaging was good, a little banged up from shipping (missing 1 washer)

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Timbren saved our RV road trip! The leafs on the axle on our 2018 Jayco TT came apart while driving in Maryland. We tried going to the manufacturer, but they were useless. Going to a RV mechanic meant being grounded for at least 2 months. Then we found Timbren. With the help of Timbren's excellent staff we purchased axle-less system through etrailer, who made sure we got as quick as possible. It came ahead of schedule, my husband installed the Timbren system and we were back on the road! The axle-less system is better than the original manufacturers. If you plan on taking your RV or TT farther than 100 miles GET THIS INSTALLED and get it through etrailer.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


The order came in on time and the customer service at etrailer.com (Ashley) and Sean from Tmbren was outstanding. They both were very helpful in my choosing the right product for my needs. The axle less suspension's performance is absolutely superb. It vastly improves ride quality. I am using it on a teardrop camper that often goes on gravel roads and the raddling sound from the leaf axles was horrible. A couple of points to consider before you settle on the axle less suspension: keep in mind that you will lose some hight of the trailer. While you will gain clearance from the lack of the axle, the suspension will make the trailer sit lower than before.i had to lower my hitch by an inch to maintain the trailer leveled. Also it does appear to compress at higher rate than the leaf springs, which makes it softer but easier to reach it's limit. Overall this product is absolutely a must if you are looking to improve the safety and the quality of your towing.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Purchased 2 sets of the Timbren 1200 Axle-less systems for upgrading the suspension on an older 30' ft glider trailer. Single axle with small (13") tires made towing tough due to porpoising, dragging on drive entrances do to poor flotation; also German made and metric, no repair parts. GVW 2000 lbs equated to bouncy ride. Dual sets now allow the trailer to ride over bumps and sharp inclines easily, smoothly, little bounce on country roads; porpoising is history. My glider now rides securely, safely, quietly. Install time 4 1/2 hours (includes head-scratching). Results are outstanding, units are totally solid. Recommend the square tube interconnect, easy and quick - trailer frame was on the light side, so a precautionary fix. Clean look underneath. Ordered 5 wheels w/tires, very nice. Helpful neighbor so impressed he ordered a HD single set for his new DIY snowmobile trailer. Customer satisfaction 100%, from phone order, online support, product information, immediate shipping, install instructions, followup... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!


Comments
I have just a little more to add regarding my purchase: Two sets, of the Timbren Axle-less assemblies, 1200 lb, and 5 wheels. I placed the order via phone, and whoever was on-call that day provided great answers and recommendations regarding the units, wheels and tires. At 31 feet, the trailer originally exhibited amplified porpoising on any bumps or dips in the road. Also bouncing and occasional sideways tipping due to the single axle. It made a lot of noise on my mountain community washboards. I speculated that the Timbren units would solve most, if not all of these problems and they have. Installation on my older 31 ft European ie, metric and no longer manufactured glider trailer was a mere 4.5 hours from removal of the old single axle to setting the trailer back down on its new assemblies. Instructions are complete, precise, useful and helpful. Appreciated. Little to comment on as installation was all straight-forward. I would like to describe the maiden voyage to the airport and back, but there is nothing to tell, other than it towed beautifully proper alignment instructions, and all that I viewed from the rear view mirror looked like a magic carpet ride. It rides over washboards and pot holes like a marathon hurdler, the 4-wheel independent suspension is great. Packaging: the shipping boxes all arrived in good condition, but the cardboard component boxes inside them... not so much. Most were ripped and open due to heavy components lightly surrounded with brown packing paper, just token amounts. Parts: all was accounted for minus a pair of spindle axle washers for one set, easily replaced at the local farm and ranch supply. No squawk, just an fyi. I am very pleased with your product and support, and was happy to leave a 5-star review with photos. The upgraded suspension was also a topic this past weekend at the glider port by those who regularly trailer their ships to various soaring events, some as far as a thousand miles away. My compliments to eTrailers, hope you can use my info,

Came late. Not e-trailers fault. Covid-19 and China's fault. They bolted right up on my trailer frame. Really like the way they make my tear drip trailer handle. No sway, no bouncing all over like it use to. Will always put these under any trailer I build from now on. E-trailer keep up the great work.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Pleased with ETRAILER, will order here again. Not as happy with the torsion axle setup. 2 inch square opening for tying both axles together with your own 2" square tubing are not shaped to match 2x2x1/8 tubing. Grinding and welding of tubing required to make it fit. Also found the overslung stub axle left the end of the pivot arm without much ground clearance though the unit was intended and spec'd for atv tire off road use. A pivot arm with mounting pads top and bottom would be better and allow the user to choose high or low clearance use. I found the units were perfectly suited to offroad use once I fabricated new mounting pads and welded them to the bottom of the arms.


Comments
After a year of off road use, I couldnt be happier. My trailer rides smooth loaded or unloaded. No of that bunny hopp with leaf springs or rigid mount axles. The small rebound control snubber works perfectly! I modified my components for high clearance but the concept is sound, they work well. Great job Timbren!

It was a very straight forward install, it goes pretty smooth if you take your time, double check your layout, Make sure of your bolt sizes (length) before going to the store. If you plan the project, don’t rush, its not a race, it goes really good. I spent about 10 hours spread over two days by myself. I am just waiting for tires to arrive. All that said very happy with the product and etrailer. Will recommend for any axel/suspension replacement.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


After a great deal of research, I ultimately chose the Timbren long arm kit to replace the torsion axle under my teardrop trailer. My initial impression is that there is simply no comparison between the two. It now rides better, pulls better and handles better than I could have imagined. The Timbren axle system is incredibly well built and is much more confidence-inspiring. While the spring rate closely matches my trailer weight, the components are much more rugged and robust. The spindles, bearings and brakes are rated at double the capacity of my old axle which gives me great peace of mind. I pull my trailer, both on and off road, anywhere it will fit and the long travel and heavier components are a game-changer for my travels. Installation, while requiring a bit of forethought, was otherwise straightforward and methodical. Documentation available from etrailer and Timbren, is second to none. Instructions were clear and concise with drawings and detail taking the major guesswork out of the equation. Even though, due to the odd frame design of my trailer that required a bit of work to adapt, I ended up making some frame stiffeners, the adaptation was as simple as it could possibly be. I've ordered from etrailer in the past and they were 100% accurate on this order as well. I ordered the Timbren kit without backing plates and hubs due to the requirements of my trailer and etrailer suggested, explained availability and supplied all of the components I needed. They truly a stress-less bunch of folks with an extraordinary website. I'll no doubt turn to them again...

These units install easily, are well made, and perform great! The trailer doesn't bounce around like you see a lot of trailers do while traveling down a bumpy road. I traveled some unpaved roads with no issues. I am certainly glad I went axleless. I installed with 15" tires. Problem is I didn't go big enough. I intended to install on an existing trailer that I had. Changed my mind and built a new trailer. The new trailer came in heavier than I had planned. 2k pound capacity is now too small. I have to watch what I load the trailer with so I don't over load the suspension. I intend on buying the 3500 pound units when I have the money.

    Combining the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR2000S02 with the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # 84655UC1-EZ is a great option for a small trailer and camping. One of the biggest advantages of the Timbren Axle-Less systems is that they increase ground clearance for the trailer since you don't have an axle tube hanging below everything else.

    The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/Brake Flange # ASR2000S02 does have the ability to incorporate a hub that has a 5 on 5 bolt pattern. If you would like just the hub it is part # AKIHUB-550-35-K and if you would like to have brakes you will need the Hub and Drum # AKHD-550-35-EZ-K, Right Hand (passenger's side) Brake Assembly # 23-48, and Left Hand (driver's side) Brake Assembly # 23-47. With that being said, we highly recommend using trailer tires on a trailer...

  • Available Axle-Less Suspension Systems
    Axle-less systems are not designed for specific types of trailers, but will need to be chosen based on weight capacity and potentially the hubs if you plan on keeping your current ones. For example, Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR2000S02 has a 2,000 lb capacity and fits 1- or 2-axle trailers that use regular tires. It works with 3,500 lb hubs # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K. I've added a link to a video review of this system, as well as a link to our page with each of our axle-less...

  • Can Welded-On Trailer Hub Withstand Sandblasting and Powder Coating
    Your welded-on trailer hubs are likely to be damaged during the process of sandblasting and powder coating which is why you were told to remove the axle. The best option for you, especially since you are converting your trailer to a fish house, is to add new suspension. The easiest and most effective way to do that is to add an axle-less suspension system, such as the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR2000S02. This system is rated for 2,000 lbs and requires new hubs # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K...

  • What Brake System is Recommended to use With Timbren Axle-Less Suspension?
    If you plan on using the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR2000S02, I recommend using electric brakes with your teardrop trailer. To add these, you would first need the hub and drum assembly that is compatible with the Timbren, # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K. For electric brakes, I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - Left Hand # AKEBRK-35L-SA and Electric Trailer Brake Assembly - Right Hand # AKEBRK-35R-SA. You would need an electric brake controller for these brakes,...

  • How Much Space is Needed Between Fenders and Tires with Timbrem Axle-Less Suspension Installed
    We generally recommend that you have 4 inches between the tops of the tires and the underside of the fender to allow for travel of the suspension. It could require more or less space but it is more likely to require less than more. Four inches is pretty far and the deflection on # ASR2000S02 is 2-5/8 inches so it should be just about perfect depending on the tire size.

  • Is Distance From Mounting Flange To Front Of Hub Between Idler And Brake Hubs On Axle-Less System
    When using an idler hub or a hub and drum with brakes on the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System, part # ASR2000S02, the difference in the distance from the bracket to the front face of the hub as shown in the attached drawing would be the same. The # ASR2000S02is designed for trailers with one or two axles and has a weight capacity of 2,000-lbs. One note: If your trailer does not have a crossmember above the place where you are installing the Timbrens, you may need to reinforce...

  • Self-Adjusting Trailer Brake Assemblies for Timbren Axle-Less Suspension ASR2000S02
    The recommended hub/drum for use with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension Kit # ASR2000S02 is either the powder-coat version # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K or the galvanized version # AKHD-545-35-G-EZ-K, both of which are the 10-inch size. You are correct that these hubs require 10-inch brakes and that often a 2K axle uses smaller brakes in the 7 x 1-1/4-inch drum size. With either of these hub/drums you can use our cost-effective etrailer self-adjusting brakes, left-hand # AKEBRK-35L-SA and...

  • How Many Sides Does the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System Come With
    The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System part # ASR2000S02 comes with both a left side and a right side which would be the equivalent of a single axle trailer. The 2,000 lb weigh capacity is for both sides total which would be the equivalent of a 2,000 lb trailer axle. If you would like to have the equivalent of a tandem axle trailer then you would just need to order a quantity of "2". We also have higher rated options available as well like part # ASR3500S05 which has 3,500 lb total...

  • When Fully Compressed Does Timbren Axle Less Kit ASR2000S02 Match Frame Height
    The full deflection range of the spindle on the Timbren Axle Less kit part # ASR2000S02 is 2-5/8 inch. Which also happens to be the same distance from the spindle center to the frame. That means when this is fully compressed it will be the same height as the frame channel. The kit should be used with standard ST rated trailer tires.

  • Best Trailer Axles To Use For A Spring Center To Spring Center Measurement Of 74"
    I do have trailer axles similar to what you are looking for in our Timbren Axle-Less Suspension Systems however, we do not offer torsion axles at this time. In order to recommend a proper replacement axle for your setup, I would need to know the weight capacity of the axle you are seeking. For a Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System, you would use part # ASR2000S02 for 2,000 lb. axles, part # ASR3500S05 for 3,500 lb. axles, or part # ASR5200S01 for 5,200 lb. axles. I have attached...

  • Adding Electric Brakes to Northern Tool UltraTow 5x8 Aluminum Frame Trailer
    Because the trailer doesn't have a traditional size, in order to upgrade to trailer brakes you will need to have a welder install the Brake Mounting Flange for 1-3/4" Round Trailer Axles - 2K # 4-34 which will require the proper jig to ensure placement and alignment. Then you will need to measure your spindles to help get the correct replacement hubs to add the integrated drum.

  • Hubs with 5 on 5 Bolt Pattern that Will Fit a Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System
    There are Timbren axle-less suspension systems that do not come with hubs so that you could add your own such as # AKIHUB-550-35-EZ-K. But the hubs with 5 on 5 bolt patterns that would also fit a Timbren system only accept up to 15 inch wheels. The other issue is that vehicle wheels are not meant to be used on trailers and often have an offset (mounting surface of wheel not in the dead center of the wheel) whereas most trailers take wheels with a zero offset. With that said the hub listed...

  • What Size Axle Will the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension Work On?
    The Timbren Axle-Less Suspension # TSR2000S03 works with 2-3/8" diameter axles, so you'll need to measure the diameter of the axle on your Harbor Freight trailer using a digital caliper like the # PTW80157 to determine if it will work with your existing axle. Unfortunately we don't have a way to know what the size of the axle on your trailer is, so you will have to measure this, or check the axle tube for any identifying plate that would have the axle size/capacity on it.
