Hi all,
Just put my motorhome through the MOT which it passed ok, but It had a recomendation that the rear spings were sat on the bump stops in the static position with no free travel. The motorhome is only 4 years old and done 8000 miles.
He suggested that this was a common problem and upgrade of the rear springs was maybe a good idea.

I just wondered if anyone else had come accross this problem and could advise me on any possible action I could or should take.
Many Thanks ................ Mike

The best and possibly cheapest option IMO would be to have airride suspension fitted. Not only would that give you a much better ride and road handling, but would allow you to adjust the height of the van at the rear depending on the load you are carrying.

Unless you are overloaded at the moment the vehicle should definitely not be sitting on the bump stops, it's quite surprising that it passed the MOT in that condition.
