Road clearance

Just bought a 2006 Gulf Stream Crescendo with air ride suspenstion, and wondering if there is a way to raise the height of the coach. It dosent seem to have much road clearance! Also would this have any adverse affects on the handling and stability of the unit? Any input on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Air ride suspension systems, have a specific ride height, built in, and raising it would be possible but very expensive and possibily detrimental to the handling and control of the coach. Raising the center of gravity and changing the suspension angles, a real nightmare.
Have you driven the coach and had any issues with low clearance ?

Hello, and welcome, Do you have a manual for your Coach that came with it? If so , look and try to find out what the ride height for the chassis suspension is and then you will have to check the measurements to find out if it is set right. There is no raising or lowering of a Coach w/air ride outside of these specs. Hope this helps.

Make sure you measure where the chassis maker states it is to be measured.
