I just changed the bags in my intrigue. I had to take some measurements of the existing bags and had a guy in Oregon help me find the right bags. Can you get to the bags and take dimensions and some pics ?
Can you drive it up on some blocks to get some clearance. I looked for a while and couldn’t find any numbers that were supplied by country coach. You can try Oregon motor coach but they couldn’t help me.
Sorry to hear that you are in a bad situation... My 2000 Intrigue has still the original bags, I have no real world experience. The following info is all hearsay:
Per Premier RV in JC OR (someone had contacted Premier), for 2000 Intrigue:
Front: W01-358-8195 cross reference to old W01-358-7667
Rear: with 1.5” nipple: W01-358-9482; with 0.85" (11/16ish) nipple: W01-358-9585
Hopefully someone with a 2000 Intrigue can chime in to confirm, so you would have accurate part nos. Good luck!

Thanks to all of you for your input. It turns out there is a shop here in town capable of doing the work 3 1/2 miles away. I’m afraid to drive there without suspension. And not knowing for sure what the bag number is or that they can get it. Right now I have hook ups. Has anybody ever driven without any suspension this kind of distance. I drove it last night and the roads are reasonably good.
On my coach I installed W01-358-8802 on the rear, which came with "plastic" cones. On the first trip one of the cones failed, my coach's original bags were a composite lower cone and the mount is not a full area cover for the bag to mount to. I have since read that a full mount base should be used with non-metallic cones.
After some research W01-358-8184 with aluminum lower cones were offered as an option which gives the advantage to raise the rear higher, I installed them. I since have done a 5000 miles trip with no issues.
I'm now concerned about the front's plastic coned air bags I need to either modify the mount or get a aluminum coned bag or if possible just replace lower cone with metallic type.
PS. I drove about 100 miles with the left rear air bag on its bump stop....no issues tire never heated up or contacted the coach.

As I and several others have mentioned on this forum, much easier to put the new airbags on at your hometown then broken down on the side of the road. I was very lucky mine blew up when I was leveling at a campground with full hook up.
Update, two rear airbags delivered overnight $842. Mobile install, $120 to show up, one hour labor at $120.
I am pretty sure mine were original equipment so they made it 23 years. If you are ever traveling through New Mexico, stop in the town of Grats. There are two national monuments in the area worth scene and a pretty interesting mining museum. If you need work done I highly recommend James, Alpha mobile. Very nice personality and an excellent mechanic.
