Any GAS class "A" rigs with Factory AIR suspension ?

Does anyone know if any one makes a Class A motorhome with air suspension that is GAS ? I understand that almost all diesels are air suspension, and i prefer gas but would like the soft ride of air suspension. I did once come across a website of a chassis manufacturer that made gas engine with air suspension. anyone know who it might be ?

I don't remember any gasser that come with air suspesion, but try a 32 ft or larger unit on the 2013 or 2014 F-53 chassis. My 2014 Thor is on a 2013 chassis and the overall ride and handling compared to the 2011 27 footer is like the difference between night and day. IIRC, the sales person refered to the new suspension as a Mor/Ryde system

I owned a 1994 Winnebago Vectra 34RA. It had JetAir rear suspension on the rear. The front was a standard Ford straight axle. This was a Ford F53 chassis. Winnebago removed the rear spring suspension and installed the air suspension. It used a small 12v compressor to air up the rear bags. I could use the air system for rear leveling. Rode great and handled great. The factory JetAir option was very expensive.

All of the GMC motorhomes build between 1973 and 1978 had air suspension in the rear and most had automatic ride height control.
