Like most BIG companies they "think" they have the market wrapped up. I've been planning the replacement of our standard 1450 KG rated Alko suspension
on our Jayco caravan for a while now. One thing I found from Alko is everything they have is under rated (weight/payload wise) and more expensive than comparable products out there from other suppliers.
I've contacted several trailer axle/suspension
manufacturers in Brisbane
that have cheaper, higher rated axles and other components, sometimes half the price of Alko. I don't assume their product is of a lesser quality either, as some have been in the business for many successful years.
The first thing I will replace is the Alko drop axle with a straight one of higher capacity.
Have a look around.
