Stabiliser coupling AKS™ 3004

The AKS™ 3004 is the first ever stabiliser coupling with 4 friction pads and Europe's No. 1 for driving stability and lane handling.

The AL-KO AKS™ 3004 comes in an multi-award-winning design with improved ergonomics. Snaking and pitching movements are noticeably reduced from the start. The unique stabiliser coupling with four friction pads ensures safe and relaxed travel for trailers with a gross weight of up to 3,000 kilograms.

Anyone who regularly travels with a trailer or caravan knows the problem: from one second to the next it can start to sway. This creates a dangerous situation in which the vehicle combination can quickly take on a life of its own and break loose. The AKS™ 3004 stabiliser coupling from AL-KO provides a helping hand here. Also known as a “stabiliser”, this stabiliser coupling for caravans is mounted on the caravan’s drawbar instead of the coupling head. The caravan is then attached to the hitch of the towing vehicle. You can easily replace it yourself. 

You can feel a significant reduction in snaking movements once the stabiliser coupling is on the towing vehicle/caravan combination, and driving is smoother. Combine it with the AL-KO anti-snaking system, the AL-KO shock absorbers and the AAA Premium Brake to stay particularly safe on any road.

Our tip: To protect the AKS™, we recommend weather-resistant, breathable and colourfast weather protection.
