Sumo Springs on Sunseeker?

Does anyone have experience with Sumo Springs on a Sunseeker?

I would like to smooth out the ride and while I was considering air bags I discovered the Sumos.

I am not interested in improving handling as it is perfect. I just want to improve the ride on rough roads.

Bobby

I only have experience with them on my TV. I do notice a ride quality difference when towing. Call super springs and ask their opinion- they are great to work with.

I ordered the Sumo springs last week. I expect them to arrive this week.

You were correct, they were vere easy to work with, pleasant and helpful.

Thanks

:The Sumo Springs were installed today.

I was happy with the handeling of my RV prior to installation. I never drove an RV that was better. Until today. My RV is now better than it was yesterday!

The primary reason for getting the Sumos was to try to smooth out the ride on rough roads. Mission accomplished if my short ride home is any indication.

Also more sure footed in turns. Could be dangerous as I forgot I wasn't driving my old mid engine sports car.

So far I am very happy.

I expect to take a few longer rides this month so there may be more to report.

Positive on Sumo Springs

We drove oer 200 miles today over both rough and smooth roads. Lots of bumps.
We have made this trip about a dozen times.

The Sumo springs made a very nice difference. Much less porpoising and each event was only one to two mild ones. No jarring bumps from the rear as we had in the past.

I still felt pressure from some passing trucks, busses and a class A. But many did not affect us.

The only possible negative thing to report was that I was having a very difficult time fighting the cross wind. However the wind was brutal today. I was being blown into adjacent lanes. In less windy areas it was a pleasure to drive. I don't blame the Sumo springs for the wind issues, they may have even helped.

And now that I think about it no banging noise from the shower door after I forgot to replace my "foam tube fix" and the mattress barely moved during the trip.

Glad to hear the good reports.
I just received a set for my Duramax 2500HD along with new shocks. I will report back when I have a chance to check them out.
