Anyone in Socal with VBAIR suspension?

Would anyone in socal be willing to let me go for a short ride in their VBair equipped RV (as a rear passenger)? I'm considering upgrading my 3500 to full air ride with VBair but I'd love to know what to expect before spending $10k to do it.

I installed the RIP shock/springs package. It improved the swaying dramatically. I am in San Diego if you want a test drive. 2017 Interstate. Cost was $5k.

Thank you for the invite, that's really generous of you. Does it improve the rear passengers' ride quality?

I have no idea about the rear ride quality. If I had to guess I would say it might be better as the leaf springs are no longer overloaded. The new leafs are more like a u instead of an n, meaning the center of the leafs are now lower than the ends.

Interesting. For clarification, the RIP kit is the Agile Offroad Foxx springs and shocks? I'd love to take you up on that offer to feel the ride comfort of your setup. I'll direct message you.

Worth every penny! I switched out leafs to VB air on the rear after being blown around on a crazy drive from LA to SF in 2019. The level of added control (safety) was the biggest benefit.

Where did you get your VBAir installed?
