Im going to fit air assist to the rear suspension of my motorhome. This is to aid stability and also to raise the rear for protection.

My dilemma is if to go for a basic setup, where you just set the airbags up once, or fit the system that allows me to raise and lower the rear as I wish.

So those that have the full systems fitted do you raise and lower your rear?

I went for a midway solution - so I've a pressure gauge and single fill point in the drivers step for both bags, but no compressor permanently attached. The most basic setup is just 2 Schrader valves, one for each airbag, under the van and no gauge.

I carry a plug-in 12v compressor both for the air suspension and to pump up tyres, so I can easily adjust my suspension - but - you really don't need to bother, my experience is once you've found a pressure you're happy at (which didn't take long) I never change it. If I was fitting it again I'd go for the same setup.

The only time I've ever felt the need to adjust it was once on site when the slope was such that even with ramps on the front, lowering the back end of the van helped get it level.

I have the same system as Feltwell and don't normally ever change the pressure. I have noticed though that travelling largely empty for its mot last week the suspension was a bit hard so perhaps some variation for loading may be good. I've never used it for levelling as I'm not a fussy leveller

Yes I do. I fitted air assist in my pvc with a compressor under the drivers seat. Running solo I keep the pressure to around .75 Bar (about 10psi) which is all it needs. With the race car and trailer on i run at around 1.5 Bar but I also use it to adjust the angle of the trailer for loading and unloading. Parked on level ground raising the air to 6 Bar will lift the rear of the camper and therefore the nose of the trailer which tilts the trailer bed backwards by several degrees. I also use it to level the van on pitch, generally park with front slightly high then raise the pressure to bring the rear up to level, if not level side to side i can then let pressure out of the high side to correct it.

We have AS AirSuspension fitted to our current moho and to our two previous moho's. Always have the on board compressor and gauges, adjustable from the driver's seat while on the move.
I like my gadgets anyway, but I like to raise the rear end when boarding ferries along with other steep ramps and wouldn't be without the system.

I used to twerk, but I've got such a cute little bum, the ladies couldn't keep their hands of me!

So it's a no from me:)
