Not sure how large your A class will be, but we have a 7.5m Hymer on an Alko maxi chassis without any air assistance and have no problems overtaking lorries

We have just imported our new Hymer with full air on Al-ko chassis 4500kg and it drives really well very comfortable ride and even makes the M25 concrete road sections a bit better to travel on.(y)(y)(y)

On and off since 1983
I fitted 8" Dunlop air assist to the rear of my Merc chassis and it improved the feeling of being sucked out by overtaking coaches much better. Frankia Platin Plus 840. 8.6 Metres.

Never felt the need on my last van Geist Silver spirit on a 3.0 litre Ducato/Alko chassis with the wider track over the Merc.
