You must have a fully independent suspension for several reasons. Here’s a couple: One, the independent leaves a tunnel through the centre of the van for higher ground clearance, an axle suspension drags the axle when the wheels fall into the rut, and the axle acts like a boat anchor to bog the tow vehicle. Two, and most importantly, the independent breaks up what is called in engineering language “harmonic motion” which basically means that when there is just the right speed and timing on the ruts, the bounce builds on itself to create a destructive force. When you see it you will like it and most importantly it is load sharing in a tandem mode.
We have also done the engineering to incorporate the option of 12″ two piece hub drum commercial brakes into our suspension and that is a major improvement over the standard 10″ or 12″ caravan brakes. Besides better brakes, our larger hubs allow for bigger bearings as well. Our suspension can be fully aligned, as each A-frame is adjustable. It is simply the best, and stands head and shoulders above the rest.
What we are about is building the best and strongest, not just “the look”. As it turns out, when you compare apples and apples (as close as you can get since we offer things not available anywhere else), if you were to price up their vans with what we offer, we are also very comparable in price.
Built to last
Before you choose a caravan manufacturer, you need to see how they are actually built. You owe it to yourself to come to the factory for a visit and see the difference. Call us for an appointment and we will be happy to show you through the factory. We welcome a fair comparison with the rest.
