Axles - Trailer and Caravan

Trailer Axles, Drop Axles, Overlay Axles and Independent Suspension Stubs.

Couplemate manufacturers single axles and tandem axles for trailers, caravans, campers, camper trailers and boat trailers in its Wynnum workshops.

Custom heavy-duty axles for independent trailer coil spring suspension and Rocker Roller trailer kits are a speciality. Our CNC toolmakers and technicians manufacture precise square shafts for the smoothest ride.

The most popular setup for a dual axle trailer is an axle fit to suit rocker roller springs.
