Sumo springs

ok, i am looking at a 1978 GMC Midas 29 ft class A. it has a chev 454 and 400 tranny in it. does anybody know what chassis it has and can the Sumo springs fit on this rig? i have crawled thru this forum and others and can find nothing about these class a's. does anyone have one or know anything about them. this rig has no airbags so need info on this. the site has no info so i don't know if they will fit on the older rogs. thanks for any help.

Sumo Springs have models that will fit most rigs, they're designed to take the place of air bags on existing air bag mounts, or pay the extra to get the mounting brackets for them.

Personally, they're neat, but require tools to adjust the spring rate and cannot be used to leveling, where as you can do some leveling using air bags.
