Caravan Shock Absorbers

Caravan Shock Absorbers

Taking a trip in your caravan. This is perhaps the best way to connect with yourself and spend some time away from the bustle of city life. However, when you are out exploring, it’s important to ensure that important caravan parts are up to scratch. This include caravan shock absorbers.

What These Are For

Generally, most caravans come with shock absorbers pre-installed. Caravan shock absorbers are installed by most reputable caravan manufacturers on their new caravans and campers.

These absorbers dampen the strain that comes from travelling somewhat rugged terrain. And that’s not all; they also keep it from affecting your caravan.

You’ll Need To Know…

Caravan shock absorbers—campers might know these as shockies—don’t add load to the caravans. These kits generally stop functioning perfectly within 5 years. Check your caravan shock absorber kit if you’ve had your caravan for a while.

All popular Caravan shock absorbers have standard dimensions (Max Open—380mm, and Max Close 255mm) and must be installed leaning to the rear of the Caravan by 15%. However, a little more or a little less is OK.

You can even mount your shock absorbers almost parallel to the road, connected between the spring hanger and the bottom of the U-bolts. Finally, your shock absorber should be measured for 1/2 of the stroke, and mounted in that position.

Shock absorbers increase your bearing life, and prevent a lot of vibration fatigue normally experienced in trailers without shock absorbers. Wondering whether shock absorbers help prevent vibration fatigue? The answer is absolutely. This is why car makers use shock absorbers on all 4 wheels.
