I just bought a new 5W. I want to keep it top shape as long as I can. To minimize the road
"wear& tear" I have in mind to try the new E-Z Flex equilizer suspension kit. Anyone tried those E-Z Flex? They are from Dexter Suspension.
Your comments or opinion... Thanks!

I believe they come standard on HitchHikers now. Good enough for them good enough for me.

Check out trailairs version of the ezflex system. As I remember they are about 250 dollars a pair. And while you are at it, no matter what brand, change the plastic bushings for greasable ones. You can ask the folks at trailair for a wet bolt kit. Cost me all of about 50 dollars for my trailer last fall.

Another alternative that's been around for quite awhile is MorRyde's equalizer system. This is available on a number of manufacturers' trailers as original equipment. We've been quite satisfied with the MorRyde system. Check it out HERE.

I did the full kit to my 8000lb dry weight Holiday rambler , the kit is well built and does exactly what they claim. From the seat of my pants before and after is noticeable smoother in the truck . Becarefull they sell two differnt kits one with just the center ezualzer and one with all the greaseable shackles and brass bushings , you want the full kit and as stated its about $230~250 .If you do the work make sure you have a torque wrench so you dont over tighten the shackles. The dexter web page is hard to figure out , there are only two common sizes one for 3500lb axels and one for up to 6000lb axels.
