Jayco suspension, etc....

OK, I'm gonna bug you again.

It's been a while since we looked at the TTs at the RV show last Nov. If I remember right, Jayco uses Mor/ride (sp?) suspension which is different than the standard leaf spring suspension most other brands use.....correct???

Can someone explain this a little better to me and why it is a better system than the others?

Thanks

Not sure if it's with all the units but the Mor Ryde 3000 is a three point (triangular) mounting that has one point in the middle of the leafs that connects to the frame that is and was standard on Eagles and Pinnacles. This allows the leafs to move up and down independantly when required. Others, not all, have hard mounting in the middle which only allow for up and down movement. How much of a difference this makes I honestly can't tell you, but anything will help. Most upgrade to wet bolts too which is next on my mod list.

Thanks for the info. It will help me when we look at them. At least I'll know what I'm looking at!!

Our Jay Feather has torsion bar suspension which allows the trailer to be quite a bit lower than the leaf springs. That helps with gas milage as well as sway/stability. We haven't noticed any sway except in very strong cross winds. None at all when being passed by large trucks.
