Stabil-Air was available this year but Workhorse was no longer marketing it for various reasons. I believe the main one was to promote their UFO. My company, Detroit Steel Products (currently Marathon Suspension Systems) who developed Stabil-Air, is in the process of shutting down. We will be completely done by the end of the year. We have since sold Stabil-Air to a company in Iowa called LINK Manufacturing. Here is their website www.linkmfg.com
Bob, you were correct about the cost. When it was being sold through Workhorse it was $7000 installed however we installed one a few months ago that went for around $5000-$6000. I am not sure what the price will be through LINK. I was involved with the testing and the air suspension does improve the ride over the steel suspension.
Hope this helps. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
Thanks robertb, and to all the others that replied. I did find an old post last night searching thrugh Google and among other things, said the cost, including labor, was $7,000. The post said that the labor was 20 hours. Sounds like more than what I would want to spend for this type of upgrade, though the brochure makes it sound like a nice system.
When I picked up the brochure, I asked for a ball-park approximate cost and was told less than $2,000. That sounded pretty reasonable but looks like the service writer might be way off on the quote. When I pick up the MH in a couple of weeks, maybe I'll have him give me a more thorough quote and I'll post what he says.
Talked to the service writer today and says that he made a mistake; he can install air bags for $2,000 but not this system... price would be 'substantially higher'...
