Purposes of shock absorbers

Shock absorbers
Inadequate shock absorption of the caravan body can lead to the trailer bouncing dangerously, even with only small bumps in the road. Your caravan never leaves the ground with shock absorbers from AL-KO: Immediate vibration dampening, improved driving and braking stability and optimum ground contact ensure safe and convenient driving.
Trailers with shock absorbers are safer on the roads
Slight unevenness in the road surface may cause considerable vibrations in the body. This means the following for the caravan: If you want to drive your caravan on the motorway at 100 km/h, you will need to fit the trailer with shock absorbers. However, the shock absorbers also offer increased driving safety and comfort even at lower speeds. After all, missing or inadequate shock absorption of the trailer can quickly become dangerous: If vibrations of the body are not stopped immediately, they continue to develop. This may cause dangerous bouncing of the trailer, which in the worst case scenario results in loss of control of the vehicle combination.

Trailer shock absorbers for any chassis
Assembling AL-KO shock absorbers is quick, simple and largely without tools. The swing arms on AL-KO axles for holding shock absorber brackets are prepared as follows:

  • Bolt-on shock absorber bracket
In certain forged swing arms, mounting holes are provided that make it possible to subsequently screw on a shock absorber bracket.
  • Plug-in shock absorber bracket
In various hollow swing arms, mounting holes are provided that make it possible to insert a shock absorber bracket there, and then bolt it on subsequently with the shock absorber.
  • Shock absorber bracket for welding on
For axles with forged swing arms, shock absorber brackets are welded during the building of the axle. They can also be welded according to special guidelines by a specialist workshop during retrofitting.
