    Anyone got one fitted? They aren't cheap (£2000) but they look like a great product, thinking of getting one as they mount to the ALKO chassis and only weigh 25kg, with a payload of 130kg, would welcome any opinions

    You dont say what MH you have.

    The reason this is important is that the further behind the rear axle you put a heavy lump the greater the leverage making the effect on the rear axle greater than the additional weight.

    I dont know how to do the calculation ( there will be someone on here that does) but I would suspect that unless you have a very short overhang or a tag or twin its probably not a good idea.

    hope this helps, if nothing else its bumped it up.
