I like it. I needed an adjustable suspension, the front end rode too low. Now it rides level. It improves the ride quality. The front end was too stiff. The new variable rate leaf springs and Monroe Magnums are a lot softer.

I'd love to have a 2016 F-53 with the 6 speed but I've got too much tied up in the current one. It's only got 20K miles on it so I guess I'll just have to ride it out.

Add a TPMS if you don't have one. I added the EEZ system and really like it.

WOW - How much space do I have...

I can't afford a DP so this will have to do.

Did CHF and new bushings
Replaced TVs with 12 volt LCD TVs
Upgraded all the lights to LEDs
Upgraded the single stage converter to 4 stage
Added light switches and dimmers to LED lights
relocated entry door switches for better access.

added instrument panel switches to control different accessories
Relocated chair so there is more room
added small inverter

Fixed drivers side wall that literally came loose from frame
Repaired water damage caused by frig vent cover frame.
Repaired cracked tow hitch mount bracket


I documented these in good detail on my web site:

2001 Coachmen Mirada 300QB | 2001 Ford F53 6.8L V10

Roadmaster reflex is a good addition to the CHF. The CHF will fix about
80% of the handling problems and the Roadmaster will fix the rest.

Hello ... Can you tell me how much improvement the Kelderman suspension upgrades have made to your ride quality? I have a 2011 Monaco Monarch 30' on a F53 chassis and the ride is god awful. I am considering having the systems installed at the factory on our way to Colorado in September. Any information on dealing with the factory on installation? Thanks, Dave.

Balanced the front tires, had the front end aligned, and used it.

Also replaced the rear TV with a new LCD. Next will be the front tv and get rid of that ole BOMB.
