Air ride


Recommended Posts

Has anyone installed air-ride on the new body style? I just bought my first camping trailer ever, and with the Equalizing hitch the old girl doesn't sink too much, but I was wondering if you all thought it may be something to look into getting air-ride? I know not to overload just because, and the trailer does not, but also wanting to see if anyone has done this and if it improves the towing ride/handling enough to make it worth it? Thank you for your input.

I have bags & an onboard compressor. I recommend it if pulling lots. Levels it out nicely and handles great

Got a quote for about $1300 for bags and compressor, sound about right?

Just scheduled to have them installed on the 8th.

Not sure where you are located but I paid $650 (Canadian) for the air bags and $400ish for the compressor. Did the install myself. I have the wireless one airlift compressor.

I just installed a Viair Air tank and 200 PSI compressor kit, air lift 7500XL air bags, and a PacBrake Amp'd Wireless bluetooth controller. I'm sitting at about $1400 all in but I like having onboard air to air up tires and water toys and I can control the airbag pressures from my phone. I also spent the extra money on Edge EAS accessory switches and pressure switch so I can monitor the tank pressure and turn the compressor on and off using my Edge CTS 3 monitor. It took some planning but I finally have it all mounted up and it works awesome.

I just bought a 20 Sierra 1500 Elevation.  I'd like to swap the rear suspension from leaf springs to air bags.  Not helper bags.  I tow a travel trailer a lot, and the self leveling and ride improvement are significant issues.
