All i want for christmass is......."

Is a GAS Class A with a diesel air like ride. For money spent I would rather spend it on a newer, larger and better equipped Motorhome. Looking for advice on a manufacture or experience about what's available. The Ford F53 suspension just doesn't seem to be improving. IFS maybe? Merry Christmas to all.

If you already have a F53-based motorhome, look at Kelderman. They make a system that integrate air bags into the suspension to smooth out the ride. Not a cheap solution though.

Not another one of these threads. Did you not drive this thing before you spent your money? Seeing you only have a few posts you must be new and have never spent any time learning from others the pros and cons of various coaches. You do not even mention what model, make, etc coach you are even ranting about. Personally, I like mine, it sure beats what I have been driving around for the last 12 years.

I had a Class C for 14 years, a Class A and two DP's. I will tell that you that a DP's ride isn't necessarily magical. Maybe it is in a 45' Prevost, but when the road is rough, I can feel all of the potholes. On a smooth road, the DP's will float along and feel great, but I think so will a lot of gassers. Spend a little money on some upgrades.....one at a time, and see if you can improve your ride.

My sister just ordered a new 34' Fleetwood Southwind with the 22.5 tires and the new six speed F53 chassis. I suspect it's going to ride pretty well.

Well then perhaps you should learn how to put up a thread that makes some sense to us other peons and not get your panties in such a bunch when someone responds to your lame thread in a way you think is wrong. And I am not measuring anyone, not much point in that I learned a long time ago. Oh yes, you may want to put up what it is you are comparing or considering since we are not mind readers. There, my nose is very clear now.

Boys, Boys, Boys ..... both of you lighten up. Maybe the OP didn't offer up all the info some folks need. Maybe the responder could have just suggested that more info gets offered up instead of making an unnecessary comment. All of us were new here once.

Aren't we getting enough negative stuff on TV nowadays. Chill out or just drop it. Geeeeez

It seems "drop it" is the most appropriate course to take at this time.
