RE: 2019 Coachman Freelander 26DS

Our 2015 28QB has delivered 33k miles with no issues. We spend about four months a year in it and doesn’t show any signs of wearing out or falling apart! Gary

RE: Chevy 6.0

We have a 6.0/6sp in a 32’ class C towing a 4dr Wrangler. It isn’t fast in a headwind or up a 6% grade at 6k feet, but it always gets there! And no, it’s not loud but will turn up around 3400 rpm. Gary

Good luck Tim...

RE: Curb weight

Unless I'm mistaken on this, towing capacity is stated as "Up to" 4200lbs. So, based on how your C is loaded, you may have all of that capacity, or you may have some reduced amount of capacity. For reference, our stock Wrangler 4dr weighs 4520 with the base plate installed. Gary

RE: Recommendations for shocks please

We have a 32' C on a Chevy 4500 chassis. I replaced all four shocks with Bilstien about 15k miles ago. They did make a difference in overall ride and handling. Ours also has front and rear sway bars and front Sumos. Between them all, sway seems to be very minimal. If your shocks are worn, replacements will make a difference in handling. Although, shocks are not specifically designed to eliminate sway, good shocks will certainly help. One thought is to contact salvage or recycle center for a set of sway bars from a one ton chassis.

RE: Which shocks IF...

Ron, That cupping on your right tire looked very much like the tires on our C. Unfortunately this happened after we put new shocks on. The tire mfg said it was due to us not rotating the tires. However, Michelin dealer claimed it was due to an out-of-balance issue caused by a belt failure... who knows! I put a new set of Michelins on and are watching them closely so as to not revisit this same issue down the road. Gary

RE: Sumo Springs

Jim, We have the -54's. They made a significant impact on "porpoising"... those along with a full set of Bilstiens really firmed the ride up and reduced roll as well. I put the stock bump stops back in and the ride is much smoother but at the expense of a tad more porpoising. I suspect we'll order a set of the -47's as a compromise.

RE: Sumo Springs

Jim, I put the Sumos on the front of our Chevy 4500 and had about the same results. They did impact camber a tad but, not enough to warrant the effort to try to adjust. However, I did experience pretty severe cupping in the center of the two front tires. I could not get a definitive answer from either the tire mfg or the alignment shops on just what caused this. I just replaced all the tires and took the Sumos out just in case? Sumo lists two part numbers for the 4500. They advised me to use the firmer version but are now saying the softer one will work just fine. Do you recall the part number you installed?

RE: Which shocks IF...

Although we went with Bilstien shocks, my thinking is to go with the best shock you can afford. Our Chevy 4500 chassis had two completely worn out shocks at 17K miles... one front & one rear! I had Bilsteins on the front of my E450, and found the digressive valving too floaty as I'm lightly loaded with a no-slide 24' house. The front tires were cupping badly. Switched to a pair of Monroe Magnum RV shocks, which were all of something like $25/each using an Advance Auto coupon, and they resulted in a much more controlled ride, and also the tires are wearing evenly as the twin I-beam front end isn't going up and down all the time with it's inherent toe change. Lumpy, could you elaborate on the "cupping" you experienced? Our current tires are starting to show cupping in the center of the tread. Scheduled Friday to replace all six with Michelin. Gary
