    Visited Turriff caravans to get VB air assist suspension fitted to the MoHo. Initially I was going to go for the Dunlop system but couldn't get the booking as the company I was going to use was pre booked for the dates I was available. All in in took Turriff 4 hours to fit the system and so far it has been the best upgrade that we have put on the MoHo so far. The MoHo is a lot more stable, only downside is that I am driving a bit faster as the corners are not an issue any more, no more wollowing. ;)

    Sits a lot higher in the rear now so next job is to fit comfort springs to the front. Probably go for VB comfort springs from Turriff as they did a good job on the rears.

    It does look high at the back, could it even be too high?

    We have VB full rear air assist, great package, allows us to lift rear end to board Scottish ferries, or on steep entrances

    Definitely think you need to lift the front or drop the back somehow (y), shame to need ramps, or can you let it down on site?

    It is currently sitting at 2 bar I may drop it to 1 bar but the rear end being high is perfect for us as the two single beds tilt towards the front giving us a head up position. The tilt is not that noticeable from the front lounge area so may leave it until I get the front comfort springs fitted and see how much that raises the front.

    Noticed that your suspension set up is leaf Spring. Interesting as ours is the Alko torsion bar set up. What is your rear axle load limit if I may ask ? :)

    I had VB fitted to our new Auto Sleeper in 2014 and our van is also high on the rear end, even on level ground we have to use ramps to level the van up.

    Dropped the air pressure to 1 bar and the MoHo is sitting a little higher than it was prior to fitting, just need to go for a drive and see if dropping the pressure by a bar will affect the body roll. Just compared pics and the rear end was always high.
