You are right, though. They would work well, if the trailer was worth the investment.

I've never seen a horse trailer with shock absorbers. I've seen airbag suspension on trucks that have shocks, but not on trailers.

Guess I'll have to look a little more before I decide for good.
All air bag suspension need shocks. Otherwise they bounce like crazy. I can only imagine what a kit would cost. I would build it myself, that keeps the cost down. On a side note, you could bag the truck. That'd be a better investment. And you could have a lifted and lowered setting for everyday vs towing. Just a thought.....

I thought about that, in light of current diesel prices, since lowering the truck for towing would give me a small increase in fuel mileage, but the $4,000 price tag for the conversion put me off. I can pay for a lot of diesel for that much.
