Just had Dunlop air assist (air bags) fitted to the rear of our 2008 Nuevo. Supplied by Marcle Leisure ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) and fitted by our local garage. What a difference ! Still playing with the pressures but 2.5 bar seems about right. Smoother, quieter (not so much banging over bumps) and a better ride all round. Off to Scotland in a few days (via Newcastle for a family wedding), towing our Harley, so we'll so what difference that makes.

We had Alko air assist fitted to my 09 Nuevo and found a big difference in the road handling, fortunately our 08 Sigma came with air assist air bags already fitted, I ride at 3 bar in the Sigma, really nice for the pit holed East Riding roads.

Our airide system was one of those buys that I have never regretted. 
Took advice from a guy who has been motorhoming for almost 50 years he said very little difference between makes,just buy and I would be happy - I have been hope you will be the same

I also fitted Dunlop bags, the difference is remarkable, made & fitted the valves & gauge by the hab-step & its topped-up via an on-board compressor.

I've also had them fitted to my Broadway before I purchased it, I also fitted them to my Auto Roller that I had and I'm also very pleased with the handling, I run them at 1.5 bar.

I had to extend the air assist to its fullest this lunch time to help get enough clearance to replace a rear tyre on the Sigma, the old tyre came out without to much hassle, the new Vanco camper was a very tight fit, I've never seen a wee Kwik - fit tyre fitter sweat so much since they had a change a super single tyre on my mixer some years back.
