Your posts are a little hard to understand. Some seem sarcastic, and some seem sincere. Your typing is nothing like your YouTube videos. You seem alright on the videos, but your typing is over the top.
You caught on real quick and made the point I was trying to make very very clear

First off, my dad left when I was 10.. bounced around with relatives , missed 160 days of the 9th grade and finally quit...been on my own since I was 15..

so.. typing is not one of my places to shine spelling

so the point is, and has been pointed out... just because you read it on the WWW. doesn't mean it's so..

I claim to be an expert..self proclaimed... do I know a lot about rv's... yep..

and do I know when someone doesn't....yep...

so,.. we finally got to the truth about air bag and air ride...

there is a big difference in the product... you can't just look under the coach and see the bags and say yep.... there they are honey... this is the best there is ...

bottom end freightliner suspension on short wheel base coaches is nothing to write home about.... there are way better out there..

right now ford and freight liner have the entry level rv business sewed up
yeah, you get what you pay for, and they they make more affordable so that those spending less can get out on the road...

so...point made..just because it has air ride doesn't mean it's the same as a prevo...

some people, my self included found out real quick... after they bought the coach....


the dealers run low air pressue in the tires and tell you things like once you get home and load her up she's gonna be smooth as a Cadillac...
then you go pick the coach up and feel every little tar strip in the road

I know there are some places where the truck come by like the ice cream man... but what if you miss him..

I 'm with you on the propane and don't welcome the change ... but I see it more and more on the gas coaches also

gas is gonna make a big come back with snow birds... they only drive twice a year and flock together like sheep going down the road 50mph..
You just added another subject to the list: If they no more need LP, then seriously they shoudl create pop-up tent motorhome. Since you don't move it more than twice a year, builders should create inflatable extensions all over the DP, on the roof and at the back. It would only take two hours to open it up twice a year!

First they removed the suspension that would let you go almost everywhere.
Then they remove the LP that would let you go almost everywhere.
Now you don't need all those windows since the paysage is not changing anymore.
Next they will remove the three water reservoirs and the 12-24v systems so that you will only on some campground.
After that they will create pop-up tents DP so that you will move it only twice a year.

In 2030, they will remove the engine, suspension and front wheels and deliver the DP at your campground site. If you want to move twice a year, they will rent you another DP that they already parked somewhere else.

To the original poster Mr
Luvrguy. Don't you have something better to do? You are so important in helping develop shocks. Get both coaches a DP and a Gas then you can keep educating yourself.
7 pages of you trying to convince everyone you are an expert. It did not work!

Are you looking for windows in the bath or the walk in closet which take up the last 10 or so feet of the coach behind the rear axle.

Good looking rig but as a summer weekender I'll stick with my bargain basement gasser that fits my camping schedule and budget. Someday though. Got my eye on a 36' Tiffin Phaeton with automatic ride height air suspension.


By the way what is behind the vented lower door behind the rear axle on the driver's side?
