Rear Kitchen T/T Issues??

Have heard that rear kitchen model trailers have more problems because of the appliances being located in the rear and get shaken up more being located to the rear of the axle. Without any type of shock absorber system it would seem there is some truth to that theory but the whole trailer gets a good thrashing driving any distance on our wonderful roads. Just a question that has popped up from time to time while camping and curious what some of you may have encountered....

We have a rear kitchen and our trailer also has shocks. I don't think we get any more jumbling than we did with our center kitchen without shocks. All travel trailers get the shakes and jumbles as far as I can tell. That is why you find all these nice little things for holding your items in place.

We all seem to want to travel way way faster on these wonderful roads than we should for items to stay in place. I myself need to plan for more road time. I know that 55 seems slow but it does not jar nearly as badly when going over bumpy places.

We have been looking at the outdoor rv line of products also. Overall I think the added shocks to the suspension does smooth it out some. And you are right we travel way to fast on roads that are not in the greatest condition...

My 27RKSS seems to do ok. One plus is with the slide closed it sits in front of the fridge so no worries of it opening.
