I'm having a motorhome conversion made from a Freightliner Columbia twin screw, 32' home. I want air ride front and rear but the dealer is suggesting I won't need the air ride up front. There are air ride seats and all but I think I would like the addition of air assisted ride in the front. What's the informed opinion.

I run a trucking company, I have 2 Freightliner Columbias with air ride steer axles, they do ride nice, but it is not much different than a standard spring ride, it really only helps on some hard bumps, in my opinion, not worth the cost to convert, if it came factory it would be ok,

My columbia has springs in the front and the ride is every bit as good as my old class A with bags all the way around. In fact, the ride on my new motorhome is much better and the vectra had air and IFS.
