    I take my popup offroad and never installed shocks. Not sure if they are really necessary. And I used to take the trailer up some nasty ledges in and around Moab UT so I guess you could say I punished it a lot.

    I added shocks to mine last year. I was skeptical as to whether it would make any difference at all but I was amazed once I got it on the road. The PUP travels way more smoothly and freeway-speed ridges and holes don't have anywhere near the effect that they did before. The last 10 miles of the first trip was rough, washboarded dirt roads and the trailer just cruised along very comfortably.

    I have been wanting to do this as well. I have two pro comp explorer shocks I had left over from a lift project I was doing, So I may fab up some mounts and see how it works. I was planning a spring over lift, but I think it's high enough for us!
