Standard Tandem Springs
Standard tandem springs are one of the most popular caravan spring chosen by caravan manufacturers.
Jayco and other caravan manufacturers use this type of spring. Price is for one side only comprising two springs, rocker arm, centre hanger, front and rear hangers plus all bolts and nylocks.
Caravan tandem springs are 60mm wide and one of the best investments into your suspension system you can make.
How so? 60mm springs twist less, are more robust to better withstand shock loading events like potholes, railway lines, cattle grids and corrugations to name a few.
If you are considering 45mm wide springs and a cheaper suspension system, you will need to contemplate whether your trailer will be susceptible to some harsh conditions or it will simply be a run around town trailer.
OK, so right now you have a grasp on spending a few extra dollars as a better investment for your family adventures.
