    I don't often post but do read others avidly, I feel I must mention the service I experienced having leveling jacks and comfort Springs fitted to my MH. I wish I had had the springs fitted sooner as the ride is night and day. The levelling jacks have been superb , don't know how I managed without them. I had all the fitting Done at Specialist Automotive Products LTD Doncaster. The service they offer there is second to none. Really went the extra mile for us, even drove us over to the inlaws while the job was being done. Speak to Mike. He really will look after you

    If you are swithering, should I or shouldn't I, don't hesitate springs and jacks work a treat.

    My motorhome is a tag axle Eura Mobile Integra 840 EB. 5t fully loaded on the alko x250 chassis, the front was very low and the springs have raised it 65mm, no more banging off the bump stops. Jacks by E & P and level the MH in two mins. Delighted. Roll on France

    Can't agree enough with you Mick really does a first class job, and your right the vb springs really do make a massive difference

    Another very happy customer of SAP Ltd in Doncaster here too. Mick fitted me the VB Full Air System & E&P levelling systems just before christmas and the service, quality of workmanship and capacity to go the extra mile is definitely worthy of mention.

    Hi Brian, if you mean E&P levelling ours was just over £5k on our Flair, that was a couple of years ago though, again fitted by Mick a genuine guy and a cracking job.

    we have had VB rear only fully auto air added to our Mercedes chassis, you cant have full air on a Merc, cost us around another £5K, just under £10K for both air and E + P from SAP, not sure what front and back would cost (y) but suspect it wont be a lot more :)

    Full air between 7k - 8k levelling was 5k. Worth every penny for the levelling opted not to go for the air.

    Hi Brian, sorry can't help on that other than what you already know about on N&B.

    We had E&P Levellers fitted in 2009 on a 6 metre Laika Rexosline A Class, at the time there were few agents trained to fit in UK and told not possible, we rang the factory in Holland and they said it was possible and no problem, so we took it there and had it fitted by the guy who invented it. Amazing guy and very interesting workshop cost then 5300 Euros. When we changed the van in 2012 for a built to our spec Wildax conversion panel van we removed the levellers from the Laika and had them fitted on the new van by Conrad Anderson in consultation with E&P. When driving the new van based on Fiat Ducato we experienced arm ache and discomfort so we then had air suspension added what a difference to the ride. Also useful to use in combination with levellers if we get red light. Would not want a motorhome without either now!

    We had E& P levelling jacks on our previous and on our current motorhome - it is the best accessory going and the new one now has a remote control so you can stand outside and see the admiring glances as the vehicle sorts itself out. :):):)

    One word of caution - after about four years on the last vehicle we did manage to bend one of the legs - it is worth checking before you hit the button that the ground the foot is going down on isn't some kind of uneven stone it might slip off. Luckily, it would still go up but would no longer come fully down

    SAP replaced it, no fuss and another vote for a good company.
