    Could be a pub quiz question?? I`m planning to install Grayston spring assisters on my Dethleffs MH .They have confirmed two options for chassis built in 1996 to 2002 and 2002 to 2006 . Given my chassis is 2002 it sits smack in the middle.... any thoughts on how i can determine which is correct option? Max vehicle weight is 3850kg.

    my advice is go with the extra springs not the rubber version as these have been known to lead to spring failure

    mind you i would rather fit airbags given the option

    as for determining which version, i would suggest 2002, as the van chassis will have been built by fiat up to a year before conversion by dethleffs

    does it have springs ?

    Have you looked underneath and checked ?

    Could have an Alko chassis which is 'springless'
