Video Transcript for Lippert Center Point Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade Review

This air ride suspension is going to be designed by Lippert Components. What it's going to do is it's going to make your ride much more comfortable when towing a heavy trailer like this. When you're looking to add a suspension upgrade on to your trailer, I think this is probably going to be the way to go, in my opinion.If you think about putting airbags on a trailer, a trailer like this size is very heavy. Gross vehicle weight rating is 16,000 pounds plus. Well, if you think about something this size on the highway, what do you think about You think about tractor trailers. All your tractor trailers have air ride suspension.

Why do they have air ride suspension Because they're carrying heavy loads and they want a lot of that shock to be absorbed, not only from the road, but by the weight pushing down on your axles.So adding something like this is going to greatly reduce any of that. It's also going to greatly reduce chucking you get, and how that works is, let's say we didn't have this and we have our old suspension in place. What happens is, our two axles are working against each other.So let's say we hit the brakes. As this axle pushes up, it's pushing this one down. If we go over a bump, let's say we go over a bump there, this one goes up, this one pushes down, this one hits the bump, this one goes up, that one goes down, they're actually working against each other.With this setup, as this one comes up, it has that airbag to cushion it.

Instead of pushing down on the front axle, the airbag has taken up that, or is absorbing that pressure that this axle is pushing up and vice versa. It's going to do the same thing for the front.Even though we have this installed on a camper, it doesn't mean it's designed specifically for a camper. These are going to be designed for any Tana 00:01:46 Maxwell trailer that's able to carry heavy loads.Let's say you have a horse trailer that's Tana Maxwell, you can carry six, eight horses in it. That's a lot of weight. If you don't have a setup like this, the horses are going to be going like this every time you hit a bump.

With our air ride suspension like this, a lot of that road shock is going to be taken up by the bags through your suspension.So not only is this set up going to make your ride much better, but it's also going to make any cargo that you may be hauling, for instance, your horses, this is going to make their ride much better. It's going to greatly reduce a lot of vibration. You're going to get inside the camper, so you're not going to have to clean up inside when you get to wherever you're going.We had our own suspension installed on here, and we did a test. We had some water or a cup of water we had put inside, and with our old suspension, we lost about half of the water that we put in the cup.But here on the other side of the trailer, you can see it's going to be exactly the same on both sides. The construction of these is a very heavy duty steel.

And when I mean heavy duty, I mean these things weigh about 60 pounds each.If we come inside to our bags, these are going to be in double counter loaded bags. If you look right here in the center, there's going to be a metal rod that runs all the way around the center of that, and what that does is that keeps the bags from overlapping their selves.Put it in a little bit better perspective. If you have a single bag without this ring, what happens when that squeezes is the bag will kind of fold over itself, and what happens is that puts your pressure on that fold, and that fold can eventually start to wear out. With this, this keeps our bags from overlapping so it's going to make them last a lot longer.If we come down here to our shackle bolts. Our shackle bolts are going to have invert fittings. These are going to allow us to fill the inside of the bolt with grease. Being able to fill the inside of that with grease, because this part where the spring is, and this down here moves, being able to fill that is going to allow this to last much longer than just a regular bolt with a sleeve on it.I'm really impressed with how heavy duty these are here. We have 7,000 pound of axles. And you really need something this heavy duty when you're working with bigger trailers like this, which brings me to the next point. These are actually going to work with axles up to 8,000 pounds, so another 1000 pounds bigger than the ones we have here and bigger than this trailer, so that's how heavy duty these are.Another benefit to adding these is it's going to raise your trailer up two inches. Being able to raise that trailer up two inches, it's really going to limit how much damage you do to anything underneath. For instance, you go into a cammy 00:04:37 spot that has some different terrain on it, with regular suspension on it you could potentially tear off your drainpipes, which I've seen happen. Being able to add that two inches is going to greatly reduce that damage.The kit's also going to come with a valve and a gauge which is going to make it a lot easier when we need to fill our airbags, we don't have to go back to each side of the trailer to fill up the bags. We can do it from right here.This can also be mounted in several different locations on your trailer, it's going to come with plenty of airline tube to get it ran wherever you desire to put it.Our gauge allows us to fill our bags up to a hundred PSI. The filler valve is going to be just like a standard filler valve on your car tires, so you'd be able to get a regular air truck on it if you need to fill up your bags.And they're going to recommend five PSI for every 1000 pounds of weight. It's a good idea to check your weight rating on your trailer, and adjust your bags according to how you like to pull it.That's going to do it for a look at installation on the center point air ride suspension upgrade by Lippert Components.

Lippert Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade - Tandem Axle - LC1565391

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (15 Customer Reviews)


by:

These air springs were night and day difference on our Vanleigh Beacon. We cannot recommend them enough. We bought a couple spare bags in case one blew out we would not be stranded as it might prove difficult to find them locally.




by:

Before purchasing and installing these we were breaking leaf springs about once a year. Since adding this package, we are doing well (and the roads have not gotten any smoother!).


Comments
hey are holding up. Adding the air cushion package we also bought from your company seems to have addressed our breakage issue. Thanks for asking. Pleasant surprise!

I had been looking at different equalizers with rubber components to give my 5th wheel a softer ride, then I seen the the Lippert center point setup, so I started watching videos of both, and after sometime thinking it over I decided to go with the Lippert center point because I used to drive a semi truck and trailer and both of them had air ride suspension, so for the money this was about as close to that setup as I could go without spending a lot more money, so for me I went with air ride 5th wheel pin box and Lippert center point suspension, I don’t have the suspension installed yet but I know it will make a lot of difference




by:

I absolutely love this setup, it takes almost every bump out of play when towing my 5th wheel. Speed bumps are almost non existent. I would highly recommend this product, it's well worth the investment.




by:

Excellent service would highly recommend

The product looks great. Very well built. Arrived on time. The air gauge was package with the heavy spring linkage and glass is cracked. Will add a picture. Will add a review after I get it installed. Ken

  • Will Lippert Components Center Point Fit a PJ Flatbed Trailer
    Yes, the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade part # LC1565391 will fit your PJ Flatbed Trailer so long as you have double eye leaf springs, not slipper springs.

  • Does the Lippert Center Point Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade Have a Weight Capacity
    The Lippert Components Center Point Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade # LC1565391 referenced in your question does not have a specified weight rating and it will work great on your tandem 10K axles. I verified this with my contact at Lippert. Equalizers don't really support any of the downward weight from the trailer so there isn't a maximum trailer weight that needs to be considered when using this product.

  • Which Shackle Holes to UseWhen Installing Lippert Center Point on Trailer With Shorter Shackles
    You need to use the included shackles of the Lippert Center Point System # LC1565391 that you referenced. I spoke with my contact at Lippert and they emailed me the following: They would need to use the supplied shackles that came with the center point system. 3" inches of clearance should be enough for the installation. The center point system is not designed to raise the coach for more clearance as it is used specifically for a more cushioned and smoother ride.

  • Solution for Shocks of Lippert Center Point Rubbing Tires
    If the shocks of your Lippert Components Trailair by Center Point Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade # LC1565391 are rubbing your tires occasionally that just means you have a clearance issue that could be fixed by taking the trailer to a qualified welder to move the shock mounts closer to the frame so that they are further away from the tires. The shocks help quite a bit to smooth out the ride quality. Removing them would cause the ride to much harsher. I would not recommend that.
