Monroe shocks

Anyone have any experience with Monroe replacement shocks on a Class A gas Ford motorhome? Fellow RVer seems pleased.

I have Monroe's on my coach, I bought it used with ~55k miles on it, it now has 105K miles on it. They seem to do OK but I have nothing to compare to/with.

I would suggest you look at Koni FSD also. Very pricy but did wonders for the Damon Challenger I had on a W22 chassis.

I replaced my factory Bilsteins with Monroe RV Magnums. Smoothed out the ride, I no longer have the hard jolts and slams going over what passes for road surface these days.

I put Monroe's on my diesel pusher this year, they work fine. Monroe has been around longer than I have, I think they know how to make shocks.

I put Monroe Magnums on my 1994 33' Class A HR two years and 6,700 miles ago and I've been very pleased both with my ride and the $218 I paid for all four shocks.

I just changed my 15 year old factory shocks with 45xxx miles on them with the Bilsteins and my ride went from jarring to smooth. The original shocks which Ford used on the 1999 F53 were almost non functioning. I suspect any new shock is going to work better than old shot ones.
