That looks more likely to decrease body roll.

Is it the pounding on uneven pavement that you are having problems with?

Have you tried lowering the tire pressure 5 to 10 psi? That really helped me.

Happy Glamping.

They don't claim a smoother ride for RVs, they claim less sway.

Adding to the spring rate, with them, can only had to the harshness of the ride.

For sway control, a larger anti sway bar will be a better option.

Timbren and Sumo Springs offer similar products for the same purpose. They are auxiliary springs that add to spring capacity of an axle.

See Timbren Springs

See Sumo Springs

I have Sumo Springs on my 2003 Workhorse Chassis. I have no opinion on which product is better. I presume that are so close to being the same that it is a toss up.

If I had it to do over I might install inflatable air bags instead. About the same price and adjustable to a specific application.

They will not give a smoother ride. The tend to make the ride firmer.
