New to the forum - Northern VA

Hi I am new to the forum. I with I would have stumbled across this forum years ago, would have saved me a lot of research. I have a 2000 Georgie Boy Cruise Air and my wife and I have been very pleased with it.

I am currently looking at replacing the shocks so if anyone can give me some suggestion on what type to use, it would be appreciated? Also, I am not for sure what chassis I have, anyone know or easiest way to find out? thanks Mike

Mike;

Welcome to iRV2. It should be easy to determine what chassis is under your coach, If it has a Ford engine it is on a Ford chassis. If it is a GM engine it is likely on a Workhorse chassis.

Thanks Don, must be a Ford then since it has the V10 Triton. Camping World was telling me it had the workhorse chassis but they would have to confirm by the VIN number....

Welcome Mike,
Koni and Bilstein both make a quality shock that should fit your coach.

Tom, I sure did. Was out cleaning it up some. Beautiful day out. Climbed underneath to check the shocks out and not for sure if I want to tackle replacing them or not. Getting it ready for another trip to Pensacola, Fla. thanks Mike

What I do for the heavy 'chassis' work is save it all up and when I take it in for inspection I let the shop do it. I use Pro 1 in Bealton (Rt 17 just south of Opal). I used them this year for the 1st time and was pleased. They are fair/honest family run business. Better Business Bureau has them listed as 25 years without a complaint. They kept my Class A inside for the entire 5 days they had it (waiting for tires). P.S. - I'm not affiliated with them - just a pleased customer.
I would like to know who you use and what you think of them as well.
