Default Advanced RV Air Suspension

The latest Advanced RV 4 cylinder that is going to be driven to the Tampa RV show will also have a new air suspension system according to this article and video on the Advanced RV website. Interesting.

The 2014 Sprinter press release talked about an air suspension for the rear of the 3500, but nothing came of it. It wasn't on the US order list for 2014.

Now VB has the factory warranty service in the US so it is a safe option to get. Mercedes will supply Sprinters at the factory with the VB system but whether a dealer in the US can order it is unclear. I think the air system is not provided for the front since in the US crash tests would have to be redone.

The Florida RV show trip from Ohio should give the new rear suspension a good trial run. I would expect a smoother ride in the rear and less body roll over uneven surfaces.

Now I would love for sailquik to meet up with Mike and give us driving impressions and performance numbers for the Advanced RV 4 cylinder with rear air suspension.

pattonsr,
I'm up for it!
Know where we can rent a drag strip or race course for a few hours...reasonably priced of course.

Some positive information is starting to come in on the air suspension. Advanced RV has installed it on 3 Bs so far. Sounds expensive, like around $7,000.
