Hi, we are getting a new corinium Duo next week and when we bought it the back seems very bouncy , so don't know what it will fill like when driving fully loaded. Has anyone had air suspension fitted in the Kent area in case I decide to fit.

I drive the 4 Tonne ver with the Alko chassis....it drives very well but definitely benefits from having a decent load in it otherwise it can be quite harsh.

Hi Ray. Ours is 4000kg also, perhaps it will be fine, it's when I was in it in the showroom and someone came into the MH it seems to bounce more than our Broadway does.
We got a trip in 3 weeks so will know after that.

You will have corner steadies for when on site.

As far as I know no one has complained about the ride on here. I guess it will be a case of "try it and see", but don't rush into it in case the rear suspension beds in a bit after a few trips. Air rides are not cheap!

For the Alko chassis, air suspension is flipping expensive 
much more so than for the std Boxer chassis and that’s pricey enough.

I have completed 6000 miles and the ride is still very harsh. I have lowered the tyre pressures a little and this has helped ....hopefully it won't have to detrimental effect on tyre wear. Loaded up as already mentioned helps also.
One benefit of this harsh ride is the van corners like its on rails !

 Yes I use the steadies all the time, you need them with that overhang!! The ride may well bed in but I can’t say that I’ve noticed any changes in 5000 miles, that’s not a lot I know, Ive read a lot of reviews on the Alko chassis, a mixed bag of views as usual but it seems that the chassis does not suffer from typical leaf spring sag.
