Kelderman air suspension for 2016 MBS Sunseeker

Have anyone here installed Kelderman airbags to their MBS Sunseekers? I don't think road conditions would get better any time soon so I was thinking about getting this installed. Or did anyone else install any type of airbag systems? How much did the ride improve?

thanks

With the air bag install what is your goal? softer ride, less rocking and rolling, more level coach, less sway just wondering.

Levelness and rolling are not the issues. I like to have less harsh ride on highway. I usually go around 65 mph. Roads here in Michigan is absolutely horrible.

I am familiar with the Kelderman setup but don't have any personal experience with it because of the high price tag.
In a nutshell, if you can afford it then go for it. Any air suspension beats mechanical suspension - hands down.

It is not as bad as expected. It is around $1,640 plus shipping and installation. No, it is not cheap esepcially because the shipping and installation will be almost as much as the parts. Full airbags ( replacing springs ) are three to four times as much. But I am temped. I know it will be better. How much better? Worth the price? I guess it will be subjective as usual.

Our Sunseeker came with Firestone Air Ride,,, when the bags are right,,, about 70 psi it rides & handles much better than when the psi has dropped into the 40s !!! We find once we get North of the City's the roads are pretty good !!!
We try to stay off the Interstate,,, love the old State Hwy !!! drive about 60 !!!
Are you member of a Moose Lodge ???
