WRV "upgraded" their suspensions with the 2005 model--still a Meritor product but higher weight limit of 33k lbs vs 31k lbs. Above part numbers appear to be good for pre-2005 31k suspension.....

PS--my position on replacing air bags on early model Alpines is evolving. Given the rarity of reported bag failures on IRV2 for any brand of coach [excluding collateral damage from tire blowouts], and input from experienced RV professionals, I suspect the life-cycle for these bags is longer than most of us think. Modest exterior weather checking withstanding, these bags are pretty durable--IMHO.......

Old scout, please correct me if I'm wrong but on my Alpine the axles may be Meritor but the front and rear suspension subframes and airbags are made by Neway.

Also, I agree that the bags themselves are very durable.

Agree--I have seen the names Meritor, Neway, Dayton and Holland when I read the literature and Google the internet -- not sure who "begot" who and when.....
