Hi, has anyone put air suspension on a gt3 or fr3 we love the 30x3 floorplan but after our first trip my girls thought the ride was very bumpy. The camping world by us wants $1600 to install on our unit . Is it worth it? Any ideas or experience will help.

Thanks for everyone's reply. My dealer said no ladder and I looked everywhere and there is no water filter. I have been using the small step ladder from the house and it works fine as my granddaughter is tall enough to get up there with it. I don't understand why they do not supply a ladder but am fine with it now.

Ladder

My GT3 came with a ladder mounted to the ceiling of the rear compartment on the drivers side.

GT3 Questions

I'm an owner of a GT3. Has anyone had any mechanical issues since ownership? On the large slide-out, one of the motors broke while the slide was going out causing the slide to go out crooked. We had to call a Mobile service to get the slide back in, and he had a difficult time getting it back in.

We also added, Roadmaster Anti-Sway Bar, Safety T Plus, this has made a Hugh difference, this should be standard equipment when purchasing a motorhome.

One other question; I feel that the (dash) A/C isn't cold enough. I was told by the RV place I purchased the motorhome from that they checked it out and it's fine. I can't trust anything these people say due to being lied to so many other times, I thought I'd ask on this post before taking the coach to Ford.

My dash A/C will run you out of the seat even on low.

Having worked on a lot of auto A/C's that running on low blower recirculate will give you the coldest temp but you have to be careful running really low blow speeds to keep the unit from icing up..

I will say that the big class A's dont do real good with the dash A/c because the air has to flow thru so many ducts to come out the vents

We have have our GT3 since April with no big problems. The "Idiot" lights are not worth looking at as they are never accurate (says 2/3 full after emptying). My two stainless steel sinks (bathroom and outdoor kitchen) have pockets of rust, so far the kitchen sink is good.
Our ride is very bumpy also. Did you install the Roadmaster Anti Sway Bar and Safety T Plus or did someone do this for you? Also how much did it cost?
Our dash a/c is good, except the vents under the dash on the passenger side get condensation and drip on the person's foot.
Thanks.

Chucknvic: We too had a little rust in the outside kitchen sink so we always wipe it and the bathroom sink dry after using it. The add-on to the steering was expensive $3200 but worth it to us. The stress of driving it before the addition was awful and I've driven large commercial vehicles for 37 years. I can't believe motorhome companies sell their vehicles without them.
