More looking and research about air ride and this company looks to be making a very nice system.

LBS Trailer Air Suspensions-Air Suspension for Trailers

These can be had with disk brakes as well. They should smooth the ride out quite a bit and really extend the life of the trailer and the TV.
I really like the height adjustment
as well.
I would also add an air ride pinbox.

Go to a rv salvage yard to find an airide setup. I have seen them here in ca on wrecked rv's. make sure you get the shocks and mounts as they are almost required on air ride. You can buy leveling valves about anywhere. What are you going to use for an compressed air source?

I have a Viair 10007 constant duty compressor and a 2 1/2 gal tank onboard the 450 already. I plan to have a second 2-5 gal tank on the trailer as well with a check valve just in case I need air and the truck is not hooked up.

BTW we only have 2 RV salvage yards here in Denver and they very rarely have suspension components, and when they do they go on craigslist for almost new prices.

Whats your center to center frame width? I have 10-12 rv salvage yard within 10 miles. What does new run so I have a little better idea when I call a few. Needs to be cheap enough to ship . Do you want 16 or 17.5 tires. I saw a deluxe siutes that had rolled over, will call them when you answer.

68 1/2 C to C on the frame.

New was 7k with a full air supply/control and disk brake and 8k axles

Not sure if I can get 17.5's under it but if I can I will.
