Anyone have experience with these air helper springs made by Firestone? I'm considering them for my 2005 Damon Daybreak 3060F (F53 chassis). I tow an aluminum horse trailer and feel as though I could use a little help keeping the coach level.

Thanx. Tom K.

We put them on our vintage Class C. Made a huge improvement on handling. Currently running 60lbs pressure but I think we may bump the pressure up a little to 70lb before we head up to Chattanooga. I bought mine thru JC Whitney. Took David a couple hours per side to install. If you do a search here, I posted info when we did it (in the vintage forums).

We used them on our first motorhome. Worked as advertised, worth it from our point of view.

Over the years I have used them many times. When we were pulling a trailer I used them on the cars. Two previous MHs had them also. They do not increase your carrying capacity but they will help you ride level and take the sag out of older springs.
