MorRyde Independent System

Does anyone have the MorRyde Independent suspension on their fiver? Any issues, comments?
How about the Disc Brakes as well?

I'm looking at of having this installed on my rig, any postive and/or negative issues.

Had it done to our Montana in Sept., so far so good. Also had the Disc brakes put on. Everything rides much smoother (difference can even be felt in the ride of the TV) Really stops great too. You can even stay in your rig in their shop at night. If you stay during the day, they have a nice lounge with snacks, coffee, and soda and at lunch they come in with a menu from one of the local places and you can order what you like and it gets delivered right there and MorRyde pays. It is pricey, but we've put a lot of miles on and plan to put many more so we needs to smooth out the ride and beef up the suspension to carry our increased weight. I would do it again, only next time I would try and have it done as soon as possible after getting the rig.

Our 5er came with the MorRide suspension and a 5th airborne hitch and it pulls like a dream. I didn't really think the hitch would make that much differance but when you watch it while you are moving you can see it bouncing up and down and it never transfer the shock to the truck. As far as the disc breaks go--I missed the boat with them and regret not having them. I hate adjusting band breaks.

We had the IS installed about 2 years ago on a 40 Grand Junction. We opted to install the 3 1/8 brake drums instead of the discs. The suspension is GREAT and the brakes are orders of magnitude better than the 2" that came on the unit. We have about 12,000 miles on the suspension and are very happy we spent the $$$.

Moryde was installed on triple axle 5er at factory when built in 97. Drum brakes only offered (12 X 4 shoe). So can't say how the ride would have been with standard suspension. Added a Trail Air hitch after about a year and that made a world of difference on the ride in the TV (Ford CC 350 dually). Price of retro fit disc brakes at this stage is not worth it. Have towed RV aprrx 85K. Biggest problem with Moryde is scuffing of tires in tight turn either direction

Make sure u have a length of Coax Cable, the TV Cable is near the wall, so you need an extension to reach your rig. Don't think OTA sig would be very good inside the metal building.

After 5.5 years I just replaced the rubber springs that MorRyde says lasts between 5 to 9 years. $950 for 4 with shipping to Taos, NM. $950 more at Lazy Days in Tucson to do the other 3. I did the first one in the CG in Taos. $1900.00 each 5 to 9 years is a little steep. The ride is great. No broken anything in my rear kitchen and I do not pad anything like dishes.

Have it on my Montana Big Sky and it is Grreeeattt! Smooth riding and smooth pulling. Pull with a 11 Ford F350 4x4. About 15 MPG. You'll love it, had Airborne on previous RV not near as smooth.
