You would think more manufacturers would add shocks as a option at least. But then maybe our trailers would last longer!!!!!

As a Northwood owner I'm impressed with what OutdoorsRV is doing. Large holding tanks, great layouts and quality construction. And shocks on most models, IIRC all but Creekside.

IMO Outdoors is building better units than Northwood, which is sorta puzzling as they're sister companies. Northwood used to be the gold standard for solid heavy duty built trailers, but Outdoors is doing the same with better floorplans and amenities.

Installation looks good. A couple suggestions, the frame needs reinforced because the bolt hole round out over time, a 3/16"to 1/4" steel plate welded to the frame rain and drilled to the bolt size on either side of the frame will eliminate this. Also check the clearance between the end of the bottom stud and the tire, the tire scubs a lot on a hard turn.
