I have a 2001 Laredo. When we tow, no matter the roads, everything in the trailer gets all shook up. Any thoughts on MorRyde, including cost?
Thanks

Have the wheels been balanced? Does your trailer have shock absorbers and if not have you considered adding them?

Very rarely does things move around in my 5er, when they do it's usually attributable to large bumps, sharp curves, etc.

I have thought of shocks, but don't know where I would find out how to mount them etc.

You need to know what axles you have. If they are Dexter's, you can order the shock kits online. Not sure about others, but I'd be willing to bet you could.

I don't know the prices, but the Mor/Ryde axles and 5er hitch pin are really great. We just bought a 2005 Grand Junction with both these Mor/Ryde products, towing is much smoother, without the jerking and bucking we were used to with our previous 5er that had the usual spring suspension and solid pin box. The Mor/Ryde system uses shocks to dampen movment. Contact a RV parts store and inquire about a shock kit; be prepared to give them your axle numbers from the metal bands around each axle.

Sounds like something is wrong with the axle if things are that disturbed. Find a local parking area, large lot or other place you can pull it (NOT ON A ROAD) and have someone watch the rig while you pull it to see if it is 'jumping' while in motion ....

I had Mor/Ryde IS and pin box installed this week, drove home and a world of difference. In my opinion I-69 from around Lansing, MI to East of Flint is the worst road in the world, and it handled that beautifully.
