6% coming into Canada is added. Then going into the USA the 30% is calculated on the 6% + TC (profit) margin. Once in the USA the dealer margin is added.
1.) 50% of the USA consumer cost is margins, tariffs and shipping.
2.) Pricing between Canada and USA doesn't reflect the tariff, margin and...
I've climbed under brand new trailers that have flat springs. Sometimes I think they build axles from spare parts. Say 1800lb springs with a 4000lb axle or maybe Dexter quality control has sunk to a new level.
Manufactures will use the same size springs on both sides without taking into...
The most effective is not using any aluminum. Its coming but NA builders don't like to change. The next step after that is to stop using aluminum framed windows and entry/compartment doors.
To reduce (not eliminate) condensation 20% of the overall (required for a temperature) R value needs to...
That's a nice system. The components can be swapped like the Air1 but I don't see HCV (height control valves). Without them the side to side loading is going to be an issue. Also be concerned about the wear and tear on the shorter bushings vs. the full length bushing Cruisemaster has.
Using a solid axles means the system can be adapted using the existing or an off the shelf axle. Each Airbag will easily handle 10,000lbs so all that's needed is an axle that suits the GVWR.
I wouldn't call the MorRyde Air1 independent but they've done a good job of getting 85% of the way to it.
Ram addresses heavy axles with factory air or the Found On Road Dead people have the option of Liquid Spring or Kelderman.
It's important to make a distinction between spring IS and air IS. Air provides a ride comfort that springs can't match. I've driven the same 60mile section of FSR full of...
Galvanizzed steel is the best bar none. The only reason not to galvanize is to make something cheaper. Boat trailers have been galvanized for decades. I've built (design/fabricated/welded) marine cranes that are galvanized. I've welded through the galvanizing on steel with both rod and wire. It...
The comparision you make tell me you don't have a thorough understanding and experience with Rhinoliner, galvanizing, welding and how Imperial trailers are built.
102" is for the height. Headroom especially the bath/shower is horrible.
Imperial make the right move with the air IS but they haven't figure out low temp use. Moisture needs to be removed from air or it will freeze.
Once the mfgs start using FRP that is 102" wide vs 96" the space inside won't be so cramped.
