Some Crucial Information On Caravan And Trailer Suspension

Springs for Trailers & Caravans suspension aren’t all the same. Furthermore, they can vary even when made by the same manufacturer.

For example, Jayco and Coromal leaf spring suspension vary from model to model.

Firstly, locating the spring type for your needs is easy. However, we’ll need some information first; this will help us identify the correct parts immediately.

  • Length measured from eye-to-eye or eye-to-slipper.
  • Number of Leaves.
  • The thickness of each leaf.
  • Measurement of the centre bolt.

We carry the standard 45mm and 60mm-wide springs.In addition, we stock other widths that are a little harder to get.

Common Caravan And Trailer Suspension Issues

Breakages occur in two places:

  • Rupture near the eye and
  • where the centre bolt goes through the leaves.

Broken Suspension Springs

Broken suspension at the eye is usually a sign of overloading. In this case, you’ll need to upgrade to heavier springs for your trailer or caravan.

If your mechanic does up your fish plate incorrectly, your spring will break at the centre bolt. Do not tighten u-bolt nuts up with a rattle gun.

When the fish plate has more tension on one side than the other, the spring is unevenly balanced. You’ve likely loaded more weight on one side of the spring than the other. As a result, you may find a break right down the middle.

Subsequently, to fix this issue, turn the fish plate upside down and tighten it by hand. Take care you don’t bend the fish plate. Retighten after 200 km.
