Thanks  Gryphen,

Even better, I can buy them online  :D


And suitably cheaper online, can see the price for the U83010 @ 600N is only $44 ea (plus shipping of course)

Had the Track Trailer Topaz subframe strengthening kit fitted to the Topaz this week, not sure how strong it is, apparently rivets and new age glues by Loctite hold it on....

It's obviously the zip-tie that's been put around the chassis that's doing all the work. ;D ;D ;D

I just ordered a set four of the 830x500N for $39 delivered (from an Aussie supplier).

I wonder what will be in the box (if anything turns up)?

I’m putting flexible solar on the roof so I thought 500N should be sufficient. Time will tell.


Interesting subframe strengthening kit for the early Topaz. Looks simple enough and yes the glues are pretty good these days.
Furiously working on our bucket list before time and money runs out.

Hi Everyone We have upgraded the solar to 2X200w and was concerned about the extra weight (28kg) and installed 830mm 700N struts. I really did want 600N struts but they weren't available at the time.  The result has been an excellent balance. I just hope that the strut mountings are up to it.
