    Suspension Upgrade Info

    OK, I been thinking and researching suspension upgrades for our 2013 Landmark. I really want MorRYde IS but too expensive so I been looking at the Lippert Center Point Airbag system or even MorRyde CRE 4000 system with fram Xfactor supports. Our position is we maybe up grading in less than 10 years so how much money do you put into a coach which most likely be traded in. Now balance that with creating a safer smoother ride to prevent structure damage from rough rides. I do want to upgrade to disk brakes so what so you folks? Some more info, we do travel throughout the Northeast from Carolina's to Mass each season not sure of the total mileage but it has to be in excess of 3500 miles per year.

    Re: SUspension Upgrade Info

    I too have considered suspension upgrade, but have to ask why? We full time and have travelled from Florida to Arizona, Colorado, Indiana and back to Florida twice, and will do similar starting in April. When we ordered our Big Horn, we did upgrade axles and tires and installed Neverfail bushings. Re-lubed bearings and checked brakes last season. Unit tows fine, no signs of any problems or wear; so I've waited. Would making that investment actually gain anything? Or, wait until signs of need appear.

    Okay, I have my local dealer working up a quote for me now on the cost of getting the IS installed.

    It's my understanding that there are few if any places that can install the Mor-Ryde IS outside of Mor-Ryde themselves. If you get a price from a dealer they will just up what Mor-Ryde charges and have it done there anyway. I was quoted aroun 5K for both when I looked into it a year ago. Anyone that has done this upgrade, loves it...Don

    Re: SUspension Upgrade Info

    We made the investment in the I/S including 8k axles and disc brakes, 17.5 wheels and tires and haven't regretted it; much easier on the coach and its contents. We love our Augusta and plan on having it awhile based on its dependability to date. Good luck.

    We have the Lippert Center Point Air ride and love it. It's unbelievable how much the air ride takes out of the trailer jarring you in the truck. The ride is like that on the trucking industry which makes the camper more stable. Things inside the camper just don't move because the air suspension takes all the bumps out. If you are coming to the North America Heartland Owners Club Rally in June, see if Lippert will be offering a special. The last couple of National rallies, they have.
