1988 winnabego air bags

I need to install new front air bags inthe old girl. Does anybody have a rough idea about the cost of the install. I'd do it myself, but i've been told it's quite the undertaking.

I assume you are on a P30 chassis. If you have it done you should expect an hour or two of a mechanics time plus of course the cost of the bags. Either way you can save yourself some money and remove the old bags yourself. When I had them changed on my 2000 the old bags were a real pain to get out has they had adhered to the springs and it took the mechanic quite a while to get the old junk out.

Others have done it themselves with varying degrees of success. I do know it is much easier when the outside temps are warm.

Agree 2 or 3 hours to do it if you never have done it air lift bags will be $100
