Centramatic alternative?

Just stumbled across this just now... I wonder what the differences are?

Some may dissagree but there is an old saying that applys here--" if it sounds to good to be true it probably is".-----and another--"some people run from the truth and stand in line to be fooled".-----Pieman

Probably the same

Based on the appearance, I think they are Centramatics sold under the Camper's Choice label. They look just like my Centramatics.

My Centramatics were $200 for 4 wheels. Anything "RV" is going to carry a cost. RVs are holes in the air into which we pour money.

If you are implying that they don't work, you should talk to some of us who have installed them. I have no more evidence of vibration in the trailer such as black marks in the pantry and refrigerator and no more screws backing out. Mine have been on for about 12,000 miles now.

When I picked mine up at Freightliner of Austin, I spoke to several long-haul truckers who wouldn't be without them. They quoted greatly improved steer tire life and the elimination of vibration through the steering wheel.

So if these are 'private label' Centrimatics, that explains the lack of a web site, test results and testimonials.

They seem to be almost the same thing. Same cost and all. I like the look of the Centramatics better without all of the holes. Look nice under my new aluminum wheels Give Centramatic the business as they invented the things!!

I'm still not sure these aren't private label Centramatics. Centramatic has some models that have the same hole pattern.

According to Jerry at Centramatic, he checked the Campers Choice website and said the units are Centramatics.
