Workhorse aftermarket offers the w20, w22 and w24 Stabil-Air suspension system. It features the FIrestone intelli-ride technology and 4 air bag system. It can reduce porposing, nose dive or sway depending on the environment,

From previous experiences on my last moho (94 Fleetwood Bounder) the rear air bags did very little for the ride. All they actually did for me was level the coach out by raising the rear or adjustment from one side to the other. I normally would ride with 70 lbs. on the passenger side and 55 to 60 on the driver side. They did a great job for me on that chassis to level it out but again did nothing toard ride improvement.

Since this post is more than 3 years old, I wanted to advise everyone that the quoted product is no longer being marketed by Workhorse, and I'm not sure it is even available from "aftermarket" sources, either.

I must diagree with --. My coach came with Firestone rear airbags (Triple E). I have driven with the bags at all pressures (0 to 90 lbs). There is a H-ll of a difference. Even 5 lbs makes a difference in handling. I Finally installed a dash pump switch and a small compressor up front so that I could controll the pressure from the driver's seat (Firestone) as I am driving.
A 5-10 lb increase on the passenger side helps correct for high crowned roads. At 60-80 lbs I can stop the front to back bob and it make the coach ride more rigidly - side to side. The coach is not overloaded. If I fill up with water and gas I add about 10 lbs.
I highly recommend them.
I also had a 30ft Bigfoot that was on a Ford 450 chassie and was almost uncontrolable without the rear airbags - again, they came with the coach. This coach was overloaded due to the 14,500 chassie.
Hope this helps.

Winnebago provided me with the optional uprated axle and I don't those have issues with the rear of the coach even through the majority of the weight in my coach would appear to be in the rear of the coach.

Rexhall is another manufacturer that uses air bags OEM.
