Recommended Suspension Enhancement For 2007 Keystone Raptor Toy Hauler

Question:

I want to purchase the EZ flex equalizer set for my raptor toy hauler but I need to confirm which one as there are some conflicting measurements coming up. I own a 2007 Keystone Raptor with a tandem axle setup, There have been no changes so it is original crap suspension and I do mean crap ,the manufacturers should be so ashamed of the junk they use and how dangerous it is to boot. Anyhow it currently has 6000lb axles spaced 33 inches apart but has the 7-3/4 Equalizers and shackles are 2-1/4 CTC. Would like to verify which kit because this pile of junk Keystone Raptor surely needs an upgrade. Wouldnt be so bad if were just the suspension they cheated on but this trailer is built so poorly, this is only the beginning, Sorry to complain but I want everyone to know what trash these RVs are. Please advise so I can order accordingly Thanks

It sounds like you are really unhappy with the ride you are getting out of the Keystone toy hauler. There are a couple things you can do to get a much better ride.

If you measure between the axles, it should be the distance center-to-center with the wheels and tires off the hub. You may find that the measurement is really 33 inches and if so you can use part # K71-652-00. The included shackles center to center measurement is 2-1/4 inches. This system will work if your current equalizers are 2 inches tall.

Another way to improve the ride is to install shocks like part # LC281281. This kit is a bolt on installation and would improve the ride by making it smoother. For a shock system it would be best to have a a set for each axle.

Another item that helps the ride and helps keep the trailer from bottoming out is the Timbren Trailer Suspension Enhancement System, part # TTRA1032. These help reduce sagging and help when the trailer is under heavier loads.

These suspension enhancement systems should be used on a suspension system that is in good working order so you would want to replace any worn or damaged parts before installing either system.
