Anyone have experience with Road King shocks?

The service writer at Premier RV in Tucson recommends Road King shocks over Koni's and Monroe. Does anyone have experience with the RoadKing product?
Also, experience with Premier RV service in Tucson Az?

I don't think you'll get many answers. They're soooo expensive that you can't even get a price for them without calling.

Never hear of them. A quick google showed 6 of them cost $1800???

I never had any luck with Monroe on any 1 ton truck or motorhome. I would stick with Koni, Bilstein or Rancho. I don't think Rancho makes Class A RV shocks, but I put the adjustable 9000's on my Class B and the ride difference was amazing.

I put Road Kings on just under four years ago. They improved the handling while stopping some front end porpoising. These were the previous generation, and the new ones are even more robust.

Rigs with front IFS, will see the most improvement.

I do feel that Koni Adjustable or FSD's on the Drive and Tag, with Road King handling the IFS - could work well for those that want to save some coin.

I have not been to Premier, but I've read positive posts about their service. You might take a look at RV Service Review, and see what may be posted about them.
