Motorhome Air Suspension

We can offer full or semi air suspension systems on your vehicle to make your ride as smooth as possible. The air suspension kits available at Glide-Rite have been chosen after using our years of experience in the motorhome industry and getting to know which systems are suited to different types of motorhomes if you would like more information then fill out our contact form or give us a call and we can talk you through it.

The difference in certain campervans is to do with some models adopting coil spring systems on four wheels and others taking up a more traditional layout of a bar suspension on the rear axle where the wheel is attached to the swing arm and the torso bar extends into the rear axle tube. There is a wide acceptance from motorhome manufactures that although these systems are sufficient, you should look at upgrading your suspension system to prolong the life of your vehicle and create a smoother ride in the process.

Full or Semi-Air Suspension?

Both full and sem-air suspension systems have their benefits and are an upgrade on your existing system nevertheless. The purpose of a semi-air suspension otherwise known as air assistance is to improve the capabilities of your existing suspension system, this makes it more of a limited offering compared to a full air suspension system but it can still improve the handling and comfort of your vehicle and can restore your rear suspension system for an affordable price.

If you are willing to pay the extra cost we would definitely recommend that you go for a full air suspension system as the benefits that come with it are massive. Upon completion, you will see your whole vehicle air suspension system drastically improve with constant straight-line stability, improved ride height to deal with bump stops, reduced body roll, more controlled cornering ability and much smoother and stable steering capabilities.
