Gas Shocks to Improve Ride in Triple-Axle 5th Wheel Toy Hauler Trailer


Folks I have a 13 Keystone Raptor 316SE towed by a 14 F250 long box. The ride in the trailer is Ruff. The trailer is a tri axel toy hauler, so Im assuming if this item fits I would need three sets or at least two for the axels that carry most of the weight. Is this the way going to be the most efficient way to smooth the ride in regards to ride, cost and fit ?

I called my contact at Lippert about the Bolt-On Shock Mount Kit, part # LC281281 for your Keystone Raptor.

They told me if you have 3 inch axles on your toy hauler, these would help make the ride a lot smoother. They also told me that if you are planning on using these they do suggest using them on all three axles. This is assuming you do not have air suspension on your trailer. These would not work with air suspension systems.

If you have 2-3/8 inch diameter axles, the system you would need is part # LC281255.
