Can levelers be installed on an Axis?

We are looking at a new Axis. No levelers seem to come on either the Vegas or the Axis. Can they be installed on these motorhomes? I would like to hear from any Axis or Vegas owners who have had them installed. Tom MO

I looked at the Axis/Vegas units just out of curiosity...found they are very innovative and look to be a new segment that fits inbetween Class A's and the B+...and much better than the narrow Sprinter based C's.

What I discovered is that these models are NOT riding on the F53 RV chassis from Ford (like every other modern gas powered Class A). The chassis is a E-series stripped chassis, so it would share more in common with a Class C on a E-Series cab/chassis...

So to locate a leveling system for these RV's I would look a system that fits that chassis, like:

Best luck

We had HWH levelers installed on our new Vegas 25.2, and after 5 weeks on the road are very pleased. They clatter some when they unfold to use and fold to store, but they will raise the wheels off the ground before they reach the limit. We had Bigfoot on our previous coach and it would also lift the coach off the wheels.
HWH doesn't require the sacrifice of a storage bay for the apparatus. That to me was a big plus.
We've been in plenty of campgrounds that were far from level, and dry camp in parking lots and friend's driveways quite often. My spouse and I have different sleep patterns, so it is nice to reduce the bouncing when one is sleeping and one is moving around. We were spoiled by having levelers on our class A coach.

Do you mind if I ask what the total cost installation and all for your leveler package totaled up to? I'm considering the same option.

I would think it is possible considering the coach is build on a modified E series chassis just like a class C. Plenty of class C's rolling down the road with them.

I did a driveway install of a manual single pump Quadra system three years ago on my Hurricane 31D. All up cost me right around $3000 for material and to hire a mobile welder to install the mounts the jacks and pump bolt too. Just call Quadra and tell them what you have and they will give the options to work your budget into.
