Helpful Expert Reply:

One of the nicest features of these kits is their universality; they can be installed properly for varying applications, including on smaller travel trailers like your Vintage Boler. One example of a customer install is shown in the linked photo. We do not have any customers who've shared their specific experience installing a Timbren axle-less trailer suspension such as # A20RS545 on a 70's fiberglass Boler, but that certainly does not mean no one has done it.

For your application the Timbrens may need a 2 x 2 steel tube for reinforcement; this will connect between the two units using the built-in receptacles. This feature is shown in the other photo. The key is to make sure your trailer frame rails are strong enough. Sometimes welding on additional steel supports will be preferable but the steel tubing allows bolt-on installation and is often preferred.
