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:-

Why fit motorhome air suspension?
- Improved straight line stability when on the motorway, particularly when overtaking lorries or in cross winds, it will reduce body roll of a motorhome and make it a little more predictable.
- Improved ground clearance – handy when boarding ferries or when changing elevation.
- Improved ride comfort – this is more noticeable if your motorhome is already running on the bump stops or close to hitting them, also the air suspension will offer a greater level of damping.
