    If it's bouncing it's more likely you'll need to replace the shocks with uprated ones. Spring assisters only increase the ride height

    True, thats why I use them, without them the caravan was leaning down to the front causing the car to lift up at the front..

    If you put more weight in the front of the caravan it will help the stability, less bouce, less prone to snaking etc.
