Very easy to install plan taking big trip in a few months can’t wait to see how they handle. Update to follow.

Ok it’s been a year and I have to say this product is definitely worth the investment. After taking it on a month long journey from Oklahoma to California I noticed improved handling especially along winding narrow roads. The trailer tracked well and I noticed less jolting. I also noticed the body roll diminished when in high winds or being passed by bigger trucks. Great product definitely recommend if you do allot of long hauls.

@John This is great stuff John, thanks for sharing. This is exactly what the Sumo Springs are supposed to do, and I am glad to hear you are happy with the results.


by:

Sumo springs work great. I was a little skeptical if they would work since the Dexter 5100 lb axles on my trailer have two ribs going across them, I'm assuming for strength. The sumo spring bracket was just wide enough to sit on top of the rib center point. The bracket could be 1/2" wider, it would help. I tapped the bracket in and torqued it. As you can see it didn't go in all the way but seems to be ok. Took a road trip, highway, gravel and a rough forest road. Checked the torque after the trip and nothing moved. Sumo springs helped with the trailer sway and should take some load off the springs and shackles. I am pleased so far with this product.



by:

Only 4 stars since I have only used them on one RV trip so far. I installed these in conjunction with an equalizer upgrade (Morryde SRE 4000) on my 2019 Grand Design Reflection TT. For the one trip I have been on, I liked how these helped cushion the ride of the trailer. I would certainly buy them again.



by:

2020 Cyclone 3 axle toy hauler. Can definitely tell a big difference in how quick the trailer settles down over large bumps like bridge transitions. Things inside seem to travel better.



by:

My toy hauler when loaded maxes out the 2 8000# axels. These Sumo Springs stop the over travel of the suspension and stops the spring sag that these trailers are noted for. The ride is more under control and there is less effect on the contents.



by:

We have a Grand Design Reflection 5th wheel with the refridgerator on the rear wall, and we kept having issues with the fridge doors coming open during bumpy travel, so we installed the Sumo Springs based on a number of other reviews that indicated it would restrict the trailers bouncing. Total success, we have not had the doors open since the install, and generally feel less bouncing as we travel. The trailer also has less bounce when stationary, an added benefit.

John

No problems at all, everything I said in first review remains, the refrigerator doors stay closed, despite some very bumpy roads, and we travel about 6 month each year in 5th wheel!

@John We're happy to hear that, thank you for checking back in!


by:

We purchased these SumoSprings for our 2019 Heartland Fuel 250 knowing that they would not fit our leaf spring top plates, but I knew I could modify the mounting bracket to accommodate our RV. For anyone who has Dexter axles with shocks, you most likely have a 5-1/2” wide leaf spring top plate. If you are handy and have an acetylene torch or map gas you can simply heat and bend the inside bracket, drill a 1/2” hole and through bolt it to an existing hole in the top plate. I actually think this is a more secure install. Overall, it would be nice if there was an exact fit for our Rv, but it was an easy fix. Great product.



by:

They were very easy to install and seem to provide additional stability on turns and over rough spots on the road. So far I would say they work as advertised. As usual etrailer is great to work with and shipping is fast.



by:

Easy to install only a couple hours for both axles. A more stable ride and haven’t broke any leaf springs on these great American highways, by the way I installed them on a 38’ 5th wheel rv.



by:

Delivered on time and all the parts were there! They were easy to install and give the leaf springs the leaf springs the help they needed. Our camper has less felt recoil on bumps and pot holes which makes for an easier day traveling.



by:

etrailer provides quality products you can trust. Sumo springs made a big difference in the ride quality of my fifth wheel going down the road. It helped with chucking and takes some of the roughness out of the roads. Items in the cupboards are still a mess when we get to our destination, but less of a mess. Highly recommend!!



by:

Very easy installation



by:

Installed on 2022 Jayco NorthPoint 310RLTS. Took them on their maiden voyage east on 138, south on 15 and 215 into Santee Lakes, Ca. Appears they have mitigated some of the rebound caused by springs, however don't expect it to eliminate all. There was still at times significant "bouncing" when transitioning bridge gaps or wonderful LA / San Bernardino Freeways.

Having had Timbren springs on my last truck and really enjoying the support, wondering now if I should have gone with them?

Bottom line, they WORK, just less than I would of expected. But then again, my expectations might have been too high.



by:

The SumoSprings work great made my trailer roll smoother down the road



by:

Very easy to install. The rough and uneven road and ride on our fifth wheel is vastly improved.

Still working great.



by:

Great product, continues to do job inte nded



by:

The springs do work I'm not sure how much they help. I take a trip across the USA every year. (10K miles) The roads are rough. I might be expecting too much, still have cabinet doors come open. I do feel they support the suspension.



by:

Installing the products went about as well as hoped. The hardest parts were keeping them on the desired location on the springs.



by:

A must have for additional support for the leaf springs and makes the towing experience much smoother



by:

So far so good. Easy install. Used trailer jacks to give me the 1/2-1” of lift required to install these. Definitely feel the difference in stability/lean when going around corners and hitting bumps. Will be putting a few thousand miles on this summer and these will provide some peace of mind knowing the suspension system isn’t taking as bad of a beating. A little pricey for rubber springs especially since I need four, but sometimes peace of mind comes at a price.



by:

I bought these believing I needed them for the leaf springs. I had set them aside so I could return them. Naturally, I forgot about them and a year later I contact the company and they tell me they won’t return them and suggest I sell them on social media. I have bought two leaf spring kits and due to my recent interactions I will never buy another set or recommend them to anyone. Very disappointed.



by:

Installation was very simple. I didn't need to relocate a gas line which made the job even easier. It took me longer to crawl under the trailer than it took to install them. I have not towed yet, but I'm confident they will make a huge improvement on the trip from Michigan to Texas.



by:

If you own a camper, and you are planning on towing it on the crappy roads in America, you need these springs to cushion the ride and protect your investment. Install is fairly simple and straight forward. Just take your time and don't rush it.



by:

Crazy fast delivery! The product is amazing, very easy to install and works great. Got it primarily to help with the bouncing and its night and day.



by:

Service was great and product delivered on time as promised

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement For A Big Tex 14GN Single Axle Trailer
    You were on the right track with the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs w/ Line Relocation Bracket # SS26MV you were looking at, but you'll need to see if your axles are overslung or underslung to ensure fitment. The # SS26MV is designed for overslung axles (leaf springs on top of the axle). If your leaf springs are under your trailer's axle then you'll instead need the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs w/ Line Relocation Bracket # SS33HR. The # SS26MV requires 5-5/16" - 6-1/2" of...

  • Best Way to Reduce Sway & Stabilize Travel Trailer Already Using Weight Distribution Hitch
    There is a good way for you to further stabilize your travel trailer and reduce sway. And since you already use a weight distribution hitch, and your Ram has Timbrens, the best option is going to be adding helper springs to your trailer. First, let's talk about the right fit, which will depend on your axle's weight rating, and if you have an underslung or overslung axle. An overslung axle means your leaf springs are over the axle; an underslung axle means the leaf springs are underneath...

  • Which SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs for 5080-lbs Axles
    I have a solution for you, but you won't want to use the SumoSprings # TSS-107-40 on your axle with over 5000-lbs rating on it. Instead, you'll want to use the # SS26MV which is designed for axles between 5,000-lbs and 8,000-lbs. If your axle is rated right at 5000-lbs then you could go with either set as long as you've got overslung axles.

  • Will SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs Increase Space Between Frame and Axle
    The SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs typically install compressed so they do tend to provide more space between the frame and axle in most cases but not by much and this is not really the goal of the system. If you don't have enough space between the frame and axle then this may be due to worn out leaf springs so I recommend checking this but I have attached the SumoSpring options below which are based on axle type and capacity.

  • Suspension Enhancement for Toy Hauler Options
    While we don't have add-a-leaf kits for your trailer we do have suspension enhancement options that will do a great job providing additional suspension support. If you have an overslung axle setup we have the SumoSpring part # SS26MV for if you have a 5k to 8k axle, part # TSS-107-40 for 3k to 5k. If instead you have an underslung option you would want the part # TSS-106-40 for 3k to 5k or part # SS33HR for 5k to 8k. Underslung means the spring is under the axle and overslung is opposite.

  • Which SumoSprings Kit for Grand Design Reflection Travel Trailer 315RLTS
    Since you have 5,200 lb overslung axles the SumoSprings kit you'll want is the part # SS26MV which has the black spring and is rated for between 5k and 8k axles. This will give you the best ride quality and support like you are needing.

  • SumoSprings for Grand Design Momentum 21G Travel Trailer Toy Hauler
    You will need 2 sets of the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs # SS26MV on your Grand Design Momentum 21G. These will fit your overslung axles and are rated to work on axles with a capacity of 5,000-8,000lbs. The information I could find says your camper came with 5,200lb axles but will still work if you have upgraded 7,000lb axles. I couldn't find exact information on the spring plates on your Momentum but as long as they are not more than 5-1/2" wide or 3/4" thick you will not need a...

  • Compatibility of SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs With 4" Between Trailer Frame and U-Bolts
    You will be okay to use the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs # SS26MV on your trailer. SumoSprings recommends that there be between 1/4" and 1/2" of preload in the springs when installed. As the springs are 5" tall you will have 1" of preload which will put a little more preload into your springs. This may raise your suspension slightly but will not prevent your suspension from operating correctly.

  • Choosing Between Black and Blue SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs for Overslung Trailers
    In regards to the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs for Overslung Trailers, you could in all honesty use either the blue part # TSS-107-40 or black part # SS26MV. It's better to be under than over so I do recommend the black but either will work. If you need to load a little extra you'll have peace of mind that your system can handle it. The blue will ride a bit better but the black will have more support. If you tow light then maybe the blue is best for you.

  • Recommendations to Improve Suspension System on Keystone Outback 33RL Travel Trailer
    The basic suspension components that come on most travel trailers like your Keystone Outback 33RL and 5th wheels do not address any of the road shock and vibration like a traditional suspension system. I recommend the Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension Kit # K71-652-00 to help your suspension flex properly. You will need to confirm that your current equalizer has bolt hole center spread between 5-1/4" to 6-1/4" on the lower 2 holes. The kit includes new wet bolts that will allow you to add grease...

    Yes the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs w/ Line Relocation Bracket # SS26MV will work with your 2022 Grand Design Reflection 303RLS. Since your Grand Design has a GVWR of 11,900 lbs and two axles, you'd need to use two kits.

  • Correct SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs for a Alliance Valor 42V13
    The correct SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs for a Alliance Valor 42V13 is part # SS26MV if your leaf springs are over the axle or part # SS33HR if they are under. I don't know if you have underslung or overslung axles so you'll just need to take a quick peek under the trailer before ordering.

  • Do MORryde Equalizers Help Handling in Crosswinds
    The MORryde Rubber Equalizers for Tandem Axle Trailers - 33" Wheelbase # MR87ZR will improve how your trailer rides, but won't do anything for crosswinds. The best thing you can get to help your trailer in crosswinds are SumoSprings for your trailer. They won't completely eliminate the body roll you get but they do help cushion the load and absorb its roll. The right one will depend on if your leaf springs are over or under the axle. - Leaf Springs Under Axle: SumoSprings Trailer Helper...

Between the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs w/ Line Relocation Bracket - Single Axle - 5K to 8K - Overslung # SS26MV you were looking at and the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers I recommend the Comfort Ride hands down as it will do the best job of giving you a more comfortable ride.

    You are correct the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs # SS26MV are the correct choice for your 2007 Forest River Cedar Creek 5th wheel having overslung 6,000lb axles. Do be sure to order a kit for each axle. For the spring plate it may be best to get all new plates and U-bolts # CE23003 for each axle.

  • Replacement Leaf Springs For a 2021 Grand Design Reflection 315RLTS Travel Trailer
    Based on information we have from another with a 2021 Grand Design Reflection 315RLTS it has leaf springs measuring 25-1/4" from eye to eye. You can upgrade from the 5,200lb springs to the 6,000LB Leaf Spring # e34SR. This will require you to change out all 4 leaf springs. Adding the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs # SS26MV will help improve the suspension by reducing shock and providing additional stabilization for the suspension. You will need 2 kits for both your axles.

  • Can You Trim SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs SS26MV & Will They Still Work
    Hey there Ken, that's a good question and the answer is yes, per the nice folks at SuperSprings, you can go ahead and trim the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs # SS26MV. They will still work for your trailer to give your trailer a much more stable ride, and take a lot of the wear and tear away from other components, particularly the leaf springs. The # SS26MV are for 5,000 lb to 8,000 lb overslung axles, which means the leaf springs will be mounted above the axle.

  • Recommended Replacement Shackles and Wet Bolts for a 2020 Grand Design Solitude 380FL
    Sorry about your troubles, I would be worried about the other ones failing too. To replace the shackles and wet bolts you will want to use the MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit with either 2-1/4" Strap Kit item # MR46ZR or a 3-1/8" Strap Kit item # MR76ZR. You will need to measure the length of your current shackles and pick the kit closest to them. As far as replacing your leaf springs and equalizers go there's no better time to do it if you're already replacing your shackles and wet bolts....

  • Troubleshooting Inside Tire Wear of Rear Axle of Fifth Wheel Trailer
    If you are getting inside tire wear on the rear axle of your fifth wheel that would indicate that your trailer is sitting a little nose high and putting additional stress on the rear axle. If you look at your trailer when it's connected to your tow vehicle does it sit level? To lower the nose you could lower the head of your fifth wheel hitch or raise the pin box up in the mounting brackets of the frame.

  • Correct Timbren and SumoSprings for 2022 Grand Design Solitude 3540GK
    I apologize for any confusion from the previous response. The 2022 Grand Design Solitude 3540GK does in fact come with 7,000 lb overslung axles. The correct Timbren is the # TTRA1032 which works with both the underslung and overslung configuration. The correct SumoSprings are the # SS26MV. If I were to recommend one it would be the SumoSprings. They will give you a smoother ride when compared to the stiffer Timbren.

  • How To Fix 5th Wheel Trailer from Leaning to One Side
    It's rather common for a camping trailer to lean to one side, it's likely the side with all your appliances and water tanks if I had to guess. In order to fix this I recommend some jounce bumpers like the SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs, part # SS26MV for overslung or part # SS33HR for underslung which should fix or at least help the leaning issue you're having. They install easily with no drilling and will also help smooth out the ride.

  • Can Different SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs Be Used for Better Clearance
    The SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs # SS33HR is designed for applications where the leaf springs are under the axle - if you only have 4-1/2" of spacing between the top of the leaf spring stack and your trailer frame then that leads me to believe your suspension is either old or overloaded as your axle is going to be really close to your trailer frame. This requires 7-7/16" - 8-5/8" of clearance between the top of the spring plate to the bottom of the trailer frame. The SumoSprings...

  • Recommended Trailer Suspension Enhancement For Trailer That Leans To One Side
    Depending on your exact 2018 Coachmen Catalina travel trailer the lean may be due to the weight of a slide or kitchen on one side of the camper and is common on several campers. I find the best way to correct this is by using SumoSprings Trailer Helper Springs. The springs provide additional support to the trailer leaf springs and will help to level your Catalina. There are 2 different styles for underslung or overslung axles. Finally you will need to match weight for your trailer axles....
