Default Shock absorbers

Has anyone fitted shock absorbers to their Travel Trailers.

I am thinking about it and see Dexter has a shock add on kit, looks a bit small?
Am towing a funfinder 244 RBS handles fine, sometimes when the roads dip a lot bounce sets up in the Jeep WK 2007 3 ltr CRD, from the tow hitch.

I am running WDH , measured hitch weight and axle weights all in order.
Upgraded the Jeeps suspension to Monroe load bearing shocks new front struts and heavy duty springs front and back.
These modifications have made a huge difference just trying to get it as good as possible.

Some of the bouncing on second rate roads is quite severe at speeds around 50-55MPH.

Cheers Tony

Default Shocks

I added shocks when they flipped the axle on my new trailer. Seems to work fine.
