58 • RV PRO • May 2017 rv-pro.com SPECIAL PRODUCT FOCUS HEAVY-DUTY LEVELING SYSTEM Hopkins Mfg., Emporia, Kan., presents its Hopkins Endurance heavy-duty leveling system. This heavy-duty system combines wood and reinforced plastic to create a durable and easy-to-use solution. The design stops and secures the tire from rolling out of position, making sure the tire is in the exact place every time. A non-skid traction mat prevents slipping while in use. It dou- bles as a carrying strap. Also, every Hopkins level is designed to work with this system. www.hopkinsmfg.com STABILIZING SYSTEM FOR FIFTH WHEELS & TRAVEL TRAILERS National RV Supply, Elkhart, Ind., presents the Joy Rider shock system, designed to smooth the ride. The system includes heavy-duty, gas-charged shock absorbers that control compres- sion and rebound. Brackets place shocks in near vertical position for optimum performance. The Joy Ride system is designed to improve cornering and braking traction, plus decrease side-to- side rocking and trailer structure stresses. It also can reduce tire wear and suspension fatigue. Joy Ride fits most travel trailers and fifth wheels. www.nationalrvsupply.com EASY ON/OFF STABILIZATION Torklift International, Sumner, Wash., presents the StableLoad suspension stabilizer, designed to dramatically improve safety and handling and to reduce sway, body roll and porpoising while towing or hauling heavy loads. By pre-activating the stabilizing effects within rear vehicle leaf springs, StableLoad complements the suspension's specially engineered quad contact design as opposed to reducing contact points. No-drill installations are for vehicles with factory upper or lower loads. Lower quick-connect StableLoads feature the ability to switch on/off, easily accom- modating towing needs. StableLoad is made in the U.S.A. and includes a lifetime warranty. www.torklift.com SUSPENSION PRODUCT FOR INCREASED STABILITY, HANDLING Roadmaster Active Suspension, Charlotte, N.C., presents the Roadmaster Active Suspension (RAS) product, designed to increase stability, handling and towing capacity all while never stiffening the ride. The RAS is designed to keep the leaf spring pack in its optimum bowed position at all times, never letting the leaf springs flatten out when towing a camper. By design, this also will eliminate the wandering feeling when crosswinds hit or semi-trucks drive past. Roadmaster says RAS can increase payload capacity by 60 percent and tongue weight by 40 percent. www.activesuspension.com
