Just drove from FL to WI. Coach approached bridges as an opportunity to qualify for olympic ski jumping. Experienced loud full extension and full compression of the suspension. Considerable bouncing. Haven't had this much fun since my 2008 Allegro Bus.


I suspect ride height, tag axle pressure and shocks are all contributors. Will probably be cutting our planned 7 week, 7,000 mile trip short because of this and other design issues.

Take a couple of pictures of model numbers on shocks for verification purposes. I worked with Newmar dealer/truck repair facility. I was told by Spartan they will only pay 1.5 hours labor + shocks/shipping. No porpoising on return ride home ~45 miles.
