    I have experience on spring suspension on tall vehicles with a high center of gravity with a small wheelbase, and the shock absorbing suspension only amplifies your pitching and rocking. This would likely be better without. Unless it’s nessesary to keep the weight of the camper from flattening out the tires on dips and bumps, but then you would be better off fitting the axles with dual tires. Not to mention how uncomfortable it would be inside the camper that pitches every time you move. Neat idea though.
