what suspension does the 310 BHDS have?

The dealer could not answer this, the brochure is silent, and the webpage does not say. Can't go look because we are talking about ordering one to be built.

So does anyone know what axles/suspension this has? Looks like leaf, but may have the new equalizer system, but I cannot tell from the pics.

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.

Your trailer does have leaf springs. I would think if it had an upgrade i.e. Trail Air, it would be mentioned under "Features" or listed as an option.
You can have it installed by your dealer, though.

Ya it'll be under provisioned leaf springs on the 310BHDS, just like on my 292BHDS. I had to have them replaced after only 3 months because they where flat as a pancake (and no I am not over loaded).

Any thoughts on why the leafs are flat?? Ordered a 310BHDS Liberty and expected to pick up by July 4. Concerned after reading your post on the leafs. Any insight would help? Also, what did you replace them with and who did the work?

My leafs are just fine. Zero issues with my suspension.
