It shouldn't be to hard to do after you find out how big of a compressor you need and where to put it. 12V compressors are available.

I would guess that 32 gasser doesn't ride as soft as your 42 DP.

I rode a air ride seat for 5 million miles, they are desinged for a fairly ridgid suspension. A good one will cost quite a bit and are very heavy. They bolt to the floor and won't swivel.

The fabric (vinyl) on my factory seat has died and I have to do something with it. I have found a couple of seats I like in the $500 to 800 range. It could cost 400 to 500 just to have my seat redone.....so it's time for something new. I can actually just order it off the internet. It's interesting that the RV stores don't sell a replacement air ride seat. I wish they would start thinking out of the box. We spend alot of time in the RV and like making it as comfortable as possible. We never use the swivel part of the seat.

Local Freightliner truck shop has sales on them occasionally (Dry Pond Freightliner - Atlanta) It has been years since I trucked and had one, but I did like the ride. Bostrom was the big deal back then. On I-20 from Atlanta to Columbia SC you had to run the pressure up pretty tight, if not the constant bouncing up and down would give you motion sickness - especially in some of the junk we had to run back then
