Avion

Thanks Silverwanabe

I just started a thread on this site for AVION Trailer Pictures.

If you guys have any pics with any other info about the trailer,I think this might be a useful thread.

Our Avion utilizes the MOR/ryde suspension which performs very well. With a tandem axle rig we pull the good tire up on lynx blocks to raise/unload the bad tire. I keep a small service jack in the TV to aid in lifting affected axle up an additional amount since the system is semi independent. Then remove the affected tire assembly. Avion also provided chain straps to hold an empty axle up for towing in the event you had to remove a wheel and had no spare to install in its place.

Thanks Kevin,
Will a 10 pak of Lynx be enough to see me through with my MOR/ryde tandem?

On the 250 mile ride home from the PO I lost the inside tread (about the first 1 1/2") on the curbside front. The Towmasters are old and checked between the treads and not the sidewalls which I thought strange.
We are getting new tires either way, but I would like to know is there a simple way to check this MOR/Ryde system for alignment and other factors that could have caused this.

I've trailered many a boat in my day and realize it was most likely the old tire but I want to make sure so I don't ruin the new ones.

Al, I have a 10 pack and the quantity is marginal. I plan to add another 10 pack to my gear for our Fall trips.

You may be able to get some tech advice on alignment from the www.silveravion.com site, or possibly MOR/ryde. Ours had a suspension carrier weld failure to the frame rail that caused a negative camber of the steer side wheel set. We had a local welder fix after the tires were removed and the suspension carrier was pulled back into its original position. I expected odd tire wear afterwards but there was none.

Barring any special equipment I would make up a straight beam and offset pointer tool to confirm wheel alignment (toe in/out, and camber. Simple hand measurements can be a highly effective way to measure alignment parameters.
