Tiffin gives you the option to have Sumo springs added at the factory these are all things that make your F53 motorhome chassis perform better and your trips more enjoyable, 90% of all other Gas model motorhomes manufactured today have the shorter wheel bases and missing most of these "safety and comfort" features so they can keep the prices down, they sell more units based on the outside tv than they do based on the heavier duty springs and shocks.
And remember while all these "extras" will make the F53 drive and handle much better it wont compare to a good DP with air ride. and be aware not all DP's have air ride suspensions most of the entry level DP's are no different than the gas Class A's other than better torque on the engine.
