DriveRite Air Suspension

DriveRite offer a wide range of precision made air suspension kits for motorhomes, this wide range can be fitted to almost all motorhome chassis on the market. We offer the most popular kits for motorhomers alike - if in doubt get in touch to clarify which kit you will need or if you want it installed.

Motorhome air suspension has become much more popular due to availability of parts, common chassis elements and ever increasing stress put onto the rear suspension when carrying heavy loads. Motorhome air suspension can alleviate to some degree the sagging of the rear suspension and improve rear ground clearance.

Driverite air suspension kits are suitable only for Standard Chassis and not Alko type.

To check which chassis you have look underneath the rear axle of your vehicle, if you can see Leaf spring arrangement with a bump stop then you have a standard chassis, if you see a torsion bar type suspension then you have an Alko type chassis, see images below:-
