I want to give kudos to Carl. He was passionate about the topic and took the time to find data that supported his views.

I may not always agree with his point of view but I do respect him for presenting strong rational points for me to consider. He made me go out and learn more about the topic.

For that I thank him.

now, you can see there is min. travel to air bags set up in a DP....

anyone that has rode through the I-40 from havasu to needles will know the bump I'm talking about..

I've hit it at 70 mph in my winnabgo... I had new bilstiens , and sumo maxum bags...

because it is spring, I had triple wheel travel...with around 60% droop..

went right through it....

knowning the bump was there I slowed to 50 mph in the alpine... launched the coach....not good..i think if I would have hit it doing 70 for sure damage would have happened

Those bags look a lot shorter than ours.

Could be some have longer range than others.

With an RR10S you would have said "What bump?"...in Young Frankenstein-esk "What hump?"
Until you profile all of the chassis (the silly fact things) you are only guessing.
BTW, those shocks are really tiny

like I said....those that know the bump can say what they think...

the rest is a guess...

I've had a dozen freight shaker chassis... had the same opinion...

the alpine I now have is the best highway riding 34'motorhome I personal have ever had..

I still would rather have a smaller coach....with the same ride and power

But you are the expert. Will you profile all DP chassis to prove your point?

Drove that route in Mar. Don't recall any particularly bad bump.

I know it's been asked, but does anyone have actual suspension travel specs from a coil/leaf spring suspension compared to an air bag suspension.

... Must be on class A motorhomes.

No trucks. No trailers.
