Here, at the Trailer Parts Superstore, we often get calls from frustrated customers who have found out that their trailer has been outfitted with a suspension salvaged from a mobile home transport. A little history: when mobile homes were first being introduced, some of the builders asked the Dexter Axle Co. to develop a low cost suspension system for limited use only for the transport of the mobile homes of the day. Dexter developed a suspension that was accepted and was in wide use during the heyday of the mobile home. This system was not approved by DOT, but approved by HUD (Housing and Urban Development). It was called the MHA (Mobile Home Axle) and was supposed to be disposable. Unfortunately, opportunists would salvage these suspensions and re-use them on old trailers and even new trailers.
