Air ride suspension

I have a 2004 Fleetwood Revolution 40D which I am selling and just had someone who came to look at it for the second time and they looked under the chase and told me it was a air over spring ride and would not purchase it because of that as they wanted a full air system.
I was under the impression it was a full air system can anyone tell me the difference and what are the issues of a air over spring compaired to a full air system.

My Spartan chassis has leaf springs to keep the axles aligned, but the actual spring dampening is provided by air springs. (bags) Methinks the person was looking for an excuse to back away or try to negotiate price.

Freightliner clips - AC with the Freightliner Liberty chassis & Detroit Diesel power?

What chassis do you have? If Spartan or Freightliner I'm sure you have full air suspension.

My Fleetwood Storm has a Bag over leaf spring system (if the bags are removed the RV is supported my the leaf springs)
On yours the Air Bags support the RV.... Beware of that potential buyer.
