Rear end low?

I recently purchased a 2014 Winnebago Chalet Series M-24VR. My friend was driving next to me and said it appeared my back end was low. I am new to motorhome ownership and don't know how to confirm this is low or how it supposed to be.To my untrained eye...I guess it does appear a little low...but I am unsure. Are there measurements, tests. etc I can do to make a determination.


Thanks,

Should be able to get RIDE HEIGHT SPECS from your chassis maker-- Ford, I suspect.

To me most regular class C look low. You might add air bags.

Most likely you are overweight in the rear end. Visit the CAT Scales and find out. When I bought my last class C, it was right on GAWR, but 900# over on GAWR rear, and 1400# under GAWR front. It took some serious rearaingement of stuff to get it right. Afterwards, I was amaised at how much better it drove.

That important subject cannot be stressed enough.
