Morning Fellow Motorhome owners, question for anyone that may have already done this or purchased a vehicle with it already installed .
Mulling over the idea of going down road of full rear air suspension ( I have a 2017 Winchcombe ) have been in a discussion with a company called Glide Rite in Liverpool ,
Questions are 1. It is as good as the sales info says it is ? 2. Anyone had dealings with this company ?

Please do not take this wrong way but do not really require any personal views/ thoughts on why it should not be done  smile!

Sorry for the delay, but I have only just seen this, so my comment may be too late to be of use.

I had rear air suspension fitted by Glide Rite. I found them to be an excellent company who freely answered all my questions when I was trying to decide whether or not to have it fitted.

They were a joy to deal with throughout and the installation was excellent. Unlike all the other companies I contacted, they were the only one who incorporate the switches and gauge into the dash, so it looks like an original factory installation.  It also means I can alter the pressure on the air bags while driving, according to the conditions. (motorway or uneven A roads)     

Not only does it provide better stability, but also gives me the ability to raise the rear when placing the rear overhang over verges etc. in car parks. I also use it to raise the rear on uneven pitches, instead of using the rear steadies.

Hi
   Is your Motorhome still under warranty ? is so you may wish to find what systems Mercedes approve.
                                         Regards

In my case, it was agreed it would be fitted when new. It has also been checked and approved by my local Merc service dept.
