Yes the rear lounge passengers were wearing seatbelts and it took over a week for my wife's bruises inflicted by the seatbelts to heal.

I don't know about the ride in the side facing seat over the wheelwell but given its location I would not expect it to be that much better. And before you ask it was a good albeit not a perfect road. So far the only thing we have found to tame the ride is pulling our toad, and while that works on long trips, it is not practical for every day driving.

While at the dealership today my salesman said he has a customer who presently has an ERA and thinks it is sold. He is considering buying an AI and took a test ride in the rear seat. He said it was no better than his ERA. If he buys one he is planning on having the VB Air Bag Suspension installed. The customer is supposed to be traveling to Charleston, SC today to take a test ride in a VB equipped Sprinter. I will be following this closely and would like to wrangle a test ride if the guy buys.

I found that out the hard way taking a VIP to the airport. She was nice about it, but the next time took a taxi.
Thanks for the belly laugh. (And it's her, not his.)
