This is exactly correct. The 4 air bag Roadmaster chassis was conceived to be used under an entry level diesel coach. It was poorly designed however and it has a rough ride and the trailing arms are almost sure to fail. A 3 rd party company has developed a cure for both of these issues and reports I have read indicate that both problems can be solved. Source Engineering produces and markets both much stronger trailing arms and a separate ride enhancement kit. Both of these kits when installed a the same time should cost between $5-7,000. The rest of the coach is pretty nice. The standard generator is LP which is much less desirable than the optional 7.5 Onan diesel.
In '05 the Knight was built on the 8 air bag chassis which is much superior.
