Mor-Ryde Suspension

My previous trailer did not have any special suspension and things got bounced around a lot on the inside. Had to take everything off bathroom shelves that had a 4" high containment trim piece. How things bounced over 4" high and off that shelf was a surprise.

Anyway - just bought a trailer with Mor-Ryde CR3000 suspension. How much less bouncing of stuff should I expect?

Did your old trailer have shocks ??
Shocks or the lack there of can make a huge difference in the handling of any trailer, also floor plan ; rear bathroom or kitchen ; things in the rear of a trailer or 5th wheel see much more movement than over the axles or forward of the axles towards the hitch.
Something to watch for . Wife's cousin had a Mor-ride suspension 5th wheel and was constantly having stuff thrown around inside. After a big fight with the company a mechanic found that the suspension under his 5th wheel was designed for a 5,000 lbs heavier unit, making for a very rough ride.

Old trailer did not have shocks. Just leaf spring base suspension. The bathroom was in the rear so it was the most bouncy section of the trailer.

Just wondering how much mor-ryde reduces stuff flying around.

My vantage doesn't bounce at all. The suspension soaks up the bumps.

The bouncing, I suppose, could have to do with your hitch set up. If your porpoising a lot going down the road there will be more bounce in the back of the trailer.

The truck did not bounce but stuff in back of the trailer bathroom like shampoo, mouthwash would end on the floor after towing. I am hoping the new trailer with mor-ryde suspension will help the interior items stay in place.
