I am looking into the purchase of a Rockood or similar Travel trailer but am unsure about the single leaf suspension and whether it will hold up to the rigors of rutted gravel roads. Previously had an offroad camper trailer but it had a 7 leaf system.
As I'm in New Zealand any advise would be great.

Cheers Goodie
