AirStream Interstate Class B bottoms out

Anyone been able to fix bottoming out on driveways (like into gas stations) with AirStream Interstate Class B (Sprinter Van)? Thanks, Mike From Bama

bama, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy this website and forums.
Have you weighted the coach loaded with all your items? Are you over the weight limits on the data tag for the coach? What model do you have?

No, I have not weighed in, but we travel very light so we have not altered the original manufactured weight. Also, we do not bottom out or bounce when traveling. There are two "feet" in the rear to prevent bottoming out the holding and water tanks so AirStream anticipated this, but we want to add a trailer boat and don't want to worsen this situation when pulling into gas stations. Thanks to all,
Mike

you can get "rollers" that fit on the frame or on the receiver hitch to help with the bottoming issue.

So, you have a long overhang but I would still weigh the coach and be sure not to go over the weight ratings of the coach or the receiver when pulling the boat. A skid roller would help prevent damage to body.

Thanks to all. If I don't reply right away, it's because this is new technology and I'm trying my best! I'll try the rollers. We are leaving for Lake Powell and parts of AZ Monday.

See ya,
Bama
