. . . getting ready to rehab Compact Jr

I am looking for any helpful insights into rehabing this type of trailer. It is pretty much original (1972) but I want to customize it for my own comfort. I did notice when we hauled it home that it bounced around alot! My husband is thinking about building it up on springs. Any thoughts?

Many small trailers have Rubber Torsion suspension, but not the Compact... it already has leaf springs. "Building it up" might make it bounce more!

I'm in the process of totally rebuilding my Compact Jr. You're not far from me. Send me a private message with your address and I can come inspect it and advise you.
