air suspension

I looking for suggestions, I have a 2018 Montana 3701lk.

with the refrigerator and everything in the back it gets pretty violent going down the road refrigerator shelves always breaking, and molding, window shades fallen off the wall so I am thinking about upgrading to air suspension, what do you guys think and which one would you recommend?

This article was in a 2013 Trailer Life magazine, and looked to be a very good product. https://www.trailerlife.com/tech/diy...spension-swap/


The actual article with photos is on page 52 at this link:

Since you are looking to get the bumps out of the trailer or the TV then check out the Morryde IS system.

I wouldn't assume an air suspension or IS on a trailer will cure those ills. Air ride sounds like smooth travels but how is that quantified? What proves that ride quality is improved? Rear kitchen fivers are notorious for such chaos being at the end of the "whip". Rear living rooms don't generally have such issues as things are more fixed in place than things sitting loose. I would research this one carefully.

I am not sure there is a great solution as you state because the rear is like playing crack the whip the reason I said to check out the IS is because of its ability to move independently thus dampening some of the whip. There will always be bounce at the backend but if it can be lessened that might be all that is needed for the OP. But you are correct rear kitchens are notorious for chaos.
