2010 Camelot 42PDQ air bags

I'm having trouble finding (10) air bags for my 2010 Monaco Camelot 42PDQ Roadmaster Raised Rail Chassis RR10S . A dealer is looking for me and they contacted Monaco, which they said the bags were $750 each: 10X$750=$7500 I know there has to be somewhere to get these a lot more reasonable. Just not sure where to look.
Can anyone help me out, please?

Can I ask why you are looking to replace all ten air springs on a 12 year old coach? Are they all leaking or are you having issues? Air springs generally last much longer than 10-12 years. I just changed mine about a year ago but that was on a 19 year old coach and I could have easily gotten at least another year or two out of them other than one was struck by some road debris.

As for cost, $750/each is crazy. I paid around $165/each for mine and a common price was in the $165-$185 range.

If you can find the part number there are many sources for OTR trucks in which to purchase them from.

Here is a common Monaco S-Series air spring. This Contitech AS8897 replaces the Firestone W01-358-8897 that is listed in many Monaco Owner's Manuals.

I bought 2 Contitech air springs from Truck and Trailer for my 2002 Windsor late last year to carry as spares. Cost was $311 including shipping, no tax or two airbags.



My rig is 20 years old. I inspected all my air bags last year and used a spray bottle with soapy water to check for leaks. Could not find any leaks but decided to buy a couple spare bags just in case.

Sorry for the delayed reply. I've been researching. I've looked at the other bags the best I can and they seem to be worn in spots, not sure why. However, I would rather spend the money now rather than possibly be stranded later and pay lots to be towed later etc..
I've located An Alliance air bag for $99 or a Firestone for $200.
Is the extra $100 worth spending? have you heard any info about the Alliance?

Amazon has the ones you need. I replaced all 10 of mine and I recall that they were around $175.00 each which beats the price you were quoted of $750.00 each. Go to Amazon.com and copy the part number listed above and that is the correct air bag for your 2010 Monaco Camelot.
Don't forget to order all replacement air fittings and extra air line because your current fittings should be replaced with the new airbags.
Good luck
Frank.
