I know I don't post a lot on here, but I do lurk a lot. I was just curious if anyone has every tried these: http://timbren.com/axle-less/

I like the idea, but I don't know much about them.

I have installed them on my present build. Though I have not finished building my trailer I took the trailer loaded with wood for a trip around Michigan and was very pleased with the ride. I could barely tell the trailer was behind me even with 500lbs on it. They were also very easy to install. You can see pictures of my build on the tearjerker site just look for spielhaus under the build projects section.

I'm using them, but still in the building process. Solid piece of hardware, no major issues so far other than the fact I couldn't find the toe adjustment instructions and had to call their support line to help show how much of an idiot I was (they were on the back side of one of the instruction pages I already had). At any rate, their support guy also emailed me a pdf copy.

Did yours ever settle in and even out the camber? Did you use any/all of the shims supplied?

Mine still has some positive camber with the shims - but it doesn't really have any weight on it yet either. Was just curious.

I just purchased a set to retrofit my trailer. Finished the brackets for the inside this weekend. Hopefully will be able to get it completed by next weekend.

Bump. See my post about changing the rubber spring on a Timbren: http://www.tnttt.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=65537
I'll burn that bridge when I come to it.
