I do not know of ANY rear gas chassis that provides "air bags, air breaks".
The Workhorse R-26 "UFO" is the only modern day rear gas chassis, but as others have posted, the UFO did not provide air ride or brakes. It did offer a totally flat floor, without a "dog house".......
The UFO is no longer being built.
