Firstly a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all Funsters.
I am after a bit of advice If possible, I have a 2013 Autotrail Savannah and am looking to fit Air suspension but am not sure if it is a normal Fiat Chasis or an Alco Chasis as I understand it the Alco chasis requires a specialist fit?

Have a look at the rear axle. If it has leaf springs it's Fiat. If there are no visible springs, it's Alko. (Alko use torsion bars contained within a transverse tube).
Second way of identification, if the main chassis, not the rear extensions, is painted, it's Fiat, if it's galvanised, it's Alko.

I'm pretty sure though that the Savannah is Fiat.

Thanks definitely has leaf springs as I had to have them replaced last year.
