Air Bag Suspension Kit

We love our2007 Bounder 35E Ford and want to reduce the jarring ride on rough highways.

Any recommendations on usefulness of adding air bag suspension?

Thanks!

.If you have read any past post on this issue, you will know i am a big fan of Ride Rite air bags.They are easy to install.(only one hole to drill) Every customer I had loved them. Only use 24 psi on the front.

Rotorhead,

I have a 2008 Bounder 35E and run 95 psi on average. the ride gets real rough at 100psi and if I have a light load, I will go down to 85-90 psi and never have a stiff ride.
Try this first then we can get to the pricy stuff like ga traveler has suggested or different shocks etc.

I have a 2009 35E I just installed the Koni's before taken a trip to Myrtle Beach. The ride was wonderful all the little bumps and dips you don't feel anymore. About a hour into our trip the wife says to me what did you go to the motorhome it is so smooth, I don't even hear the dishes rattling. I don't know which was the best the Konl shocks are the 5Star tune/Banks stinger kit but the made a world of difference.
