VB Full Air suspension

Levelling Gear details

We have had this fitted to our Fiat Maxi XLWB for over 2 years with no problems.
Comparing it to the standard Fiat leaf spring it transforms a builders van drive into a luxury on rails feel and reduces rattles and knocks.
Our van is an extra high top so is taller than many lowline coachbuilts, so body roll was an issue on windy motorways and when passing artics.
Since fitting we have had to carry out an emergency stop and noticed the improvement, as the front does not dike when on standard springs and the body doesn't roll. Handling and safety have been improved massively. A lot of people go for the cheaper rear air bags above the axle as a way to get legal when increasing the payload of the van. The full air system doesnt just make the vehicle legal it addresses the issue that the standard suspension on most motorhomes is only fit for use on a commercial vehicle.

Apart from all the safety and handling improvements the various functions on the handset ore also good. I can lower and raise front or rear suspension both together or individually and can tilt the van to empty the water tanks. There is a higher off road drive height for extra ground clearance also.

If the drive quality and safety is important to you then full air is for you.

Approx date of transaction
fitted prior to purchase
we purchased our van second hand and VB Full air was already fitted. It makes a huge van really smooth and comfortable to drive. The harshness of commercial vehicle suspension is a thing of the past now. I would happily invest in having it fitted to any future vehicle I buy

Now the bad bit. Not long after purchasing the van, the front air struts started to leak badly. On investigation it was discovered that the initial install was at fault and both the front strut top seals had been left loose and worn into an egg shape. VB are aware of this happening and provide a service kit if you can source it, but wow is it expensive. Repairing the faults and servicing the suspension cost nearly £1,500. If you turn your steering full lock left or right and hear a hissing sound, then your's too needs repair before it fails
