This is a simple bolt-on kit. A no-weld, no-drill solution for adding shock absorbers to Casita Travel trailers. Works for hi-lift (10 degree down) or lo-lift (standard: 10 degree up) axles with or without the Orbital 3" lift kit. Works for bolted-on or welded-on axles. Please note that this kit does not change the load carrying capacity of your trailer.
The inboard brackets are made of sturdy powder coated 1/4" steel plate with welded reinforcements to keep everything lined up. The wheel mount plate is made of powder coated reinforced 3/16" steel plate.
2 Monroe 555003 Gas-Magnum RV Shock Absorbers and all required hardware is included.
The kit can be installed with the trailer on its wheels on the ground. Access to the brake-adjust mechanism is maintained. (though you will no longer get away with just using a straight screwdriver on the right wheel - you will need to use a 'brake spoon' - video showing how to do it coming soon)
FedEx Ground Shipping (lower 48): $27.45
USPS International to Canada: $99.50 (email us first)
