Kelderman Air Ride Installed
I just returned from Oskaloosa, IA where I had Kelderman install their air ride system on my 2011 F-53 22K 242 inch wheelbase chassis. Oskaloosa is 500 miles each way for me so I had plenty of time on the road to evaluate the new system. It has improved the ride significantly. Does it ride like a diesel pusher? Probably not. I only have experience driving one diesel pusher and I would have to drive my Kelderman F-53 and a diesel pusher over the same road to make a true comparison. But the ride is improved to the point where I am very happy with it and I was not happy with it before the Kelderman upgrade. I went with the manual fill valves as opposed to the onboard compressor and auto level control after Jeff Kelderman told me that most RV users fill it and forget it. Total cost for the front and rear systems installed was $5,316. That is a lot of money to spend and we all have to make our personal spending decisions wisely but for me it was money well spent.
