Avion shock absorber question

I have a 1979 Avion model 28-m. I want to replace the shock absorbers on it. Does anyone know the correct shock absorber part number for this model? From what I can tell the nearest match appears to be the Monroe 555002.

Thanks!

Charles

Well...

I have a soft spot for Avions, my dad had a couple of 'em. Last one was the 88 9.6metre model with rear twins.

Take the shocks off, and any good parts store will have a catalog that shows max extended and max compressed deminsions. Put a good gas or nitrogen shock on there.

Nice rigs.

I have an '87 Avon 34-X. I just replaced all six shocks on it. I can look up the number for you when I get home, but it's a Dexter listed part number. I just took the old one into my local Napa store and they matched it up. They're not cheap; about $40 per. Monroe Gas Magnum.

Talk about a sweet suspension setup: Six wheel independant with six individual a-arms, six spring packs, six shock absorbers. It pulls great!

Thanks Jim, I would like to know the part number that you used on your trailer.

555001

Charles,

It's a Monroe shock, part number 555001. My buddy at Napa said it cross references as a Dexter part number. It's an RV shock.

Best of luck!
