Independent suspension is designed and built for camper trailers venturing into the wild, Cape York country.
Older offroad beam axles are now becoming less popular as coil and airbag suspension continues to perform well in tough conditions.
Are you ready for high quality, heavy-duty axle suspension that is specifically turned for outback dirt roads?
Suspension systems are available for 1250kg single axle brake systems up to 4.5t for tandem kits. However, airbags and coil suspensions are not recommended for rigs under 1250kg.
The Couplemate, Independent Coil suspension kit contains a live, replaceable axle that features zero camber at full load.
Matching trailer suspension to the ruggedness of a 4WD suspension makes a lot of sense.
Understanding Stub Calculation
The Face to Face measurements to calculate Tip to Tip measurement as follows:
S/L 10” Electric Drum add 52mm.
S/L 150mm Lazy add 50mm.
10” Disk Rotor add 49mm.
PLL 10” Electric Drum add 61mm.
2T 12” Electric Drum add 86mm.
2T 205mm Lazy add 172mm.
As a result of extensive research, prototype building and testing, Couplemate understand the complexity of camber and camber adjustments.
Couplemate was the first company to discover a rigid suspension system which in turn, solved the camber adjustment riddle.
Normally, camber changes with the addition and subtraction of water, sewerage, food and beer.
Camber changes again coming home with a light camper. Owners, in the past, have always had a problem with camber adjustment. No fix exists other than to continually re-adjust the camber.
Costs associated with camber adjustment are unacceptable to campers, therefore the need for a better offroad spring system evolved.
As a result, heavyweight suspension systems were developed, manufactured and sold by Couplemate requiring no camber adjustment.
Further, this discovery was made using coil springs on independent suspension.
Couplemate sells only sells the best quality independent suspension and spares throughout Australia—covering the Northern Territory, Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland. We also ship products via Australia Post Air to New Zealand.
