How does Airtow Trailers’ air suspension work?
Air is pumped directly into the air bags by two independent air compressors, one on each side of the trailer. The axles on each side of the trailer are monitored by electronic sensors. As the axle deflects because weight is added, the compressor in turned on to increase the air bag pressure. When weight is removed the sensor initiates air release from the air bags. This allows a super smooth ride when the trailer is empty and a super smooth, firm ride when fully loaded.

Is trailer capacity the same as GVWR (Gross Weight)?
No, it isn't the same. If the trailer capacity is 10,000 then that means you can put 10,000 pounds of stuff on it. You'll just need to make sure your tow vehicle can pull the weight of the trailer plus the weight you'll be putting on the trailer.

Why did Rock Line decide to manufacture the Air-tow trailer?
Being the original designer and manufacturer of the Triple L Trailer, we were very aware of design changes that needed to be made in order to accommodate today’s market requirements.
