That makes the 4 bag unit an affordable alternative.
I'm not disagreeing with your statement, but would like to point out that not all 4 bag chassis Holiday Ramblers need trailing arms replaced. Late 1990's through part of the 2000 model year were built on Freightliner Chassis that have 4 air bags. The 1998 model referenced above will be on the Freightliner Chassis.

Thanks to everyone who pitched in and offered their advice and input on my questions. I am now the proud owner of a 2004 Tiffin Allegro Bus 38TGP. I will post a couple of pics on the "New Rig Show-off" forum!

I have a HR Navigator, 2002 41 PBD...Love it.

S Series Chassis, Cummins 500 ISM and I just gave her a nice update with new countertops, carpet, reupholstered seats, and new lighting, new plumbing fixtures, etc. Next up, 8 new Michelin XZA 2s.

I say buy a nice used one with good guts and you cannot go wrong...just be patient and take your time finding a good one...it will pay off for you.

Here is the new shower...
