Rear Air Suspension

I'm thinking about putting a rear air suspension on my 2001 Coachmen Mirada. It is a workhorse chassis with 17,000 - 21,000 GVW. I would like to get a better ride plus keep the rear of the motor home level and help carry the rear weight better to eliminate rear sway. Interested in hearing from anyone who might have done this. Hoping to find a system that will work without investing thousands of dollars. Thanks for your input.

We do offer a kit for your application. Kit 57362 is for the 2000-2009 Workhorse W-18 Chassis, which I believe is what you have. My only concern is that it states our kit is for the 18,000 GVWR only. Which is within the range you have posted, but not positive on the distinctions between the chassis.

In each of our bag kits all parts are included to allow you to manually fill the valves via shrader valves an external air source. We do offer a wide array of controllers as well if you are interested, which I would assume would be the route you would go. We offer everything from simple manual controls to automatic and wireless controls.

Pricing wise we suggest you compare prices from our retailers to find the best deal. Typically the air bag kit is around $300 and the controllers can range from $250 to $450 for some of our more advanced ones. These prices of course would not include any installation if you chose to have someone install it.

I will send a message to one of my contacts to double check on the kit fitting your application. I will let you know what I hear back.

I talked with some others internally. They suggested that you contact a Chevy dealer with your vin number and they should be able to provide the specific gvwr of your chassis as it shouldn't be a range as previously described.

I tried to look up what yours would be but didn't have much luck as that rv came on a couple of different chassis, including Ford as well as the workhorse.

Controller wise they also suggested our 25812 kit which is one of our more standard kits. Here is a link to this kit: https://mail.airliftcompany.com/owa/...Control_System
