VB 4 C air

I’ve just had VB 4C air fitted it is 4 air bags to each corner. It’s bloody expensive, I had mine done in England and it’s circa £8000.

Is it worth it?
Jury’s out so far.

Why? Main reasons, with it I can up plate the gross vehicle weight to 4/4.2 tons. I can drop the back end of the MH to load unload the scooter in the garage. I can drop the left to empty the grey entirely. I now have an auto level system which means chocks/levellers are not required.
You can also raise the back or front or the entire MH to get on/off Ferries easier.

Disappointments so far; I have not noticed a huge reduction in the rattling and banging on poor roads, I haven’t found the road noise to be quieter, I haven’t found the ride to be much smoother.

Plus; when in auto level, movement’s that would normally start the van bouncing at the back, getting out of bed, turning over in bed have been reduced significantly.

Is it worth the money??? I will update in a few months after our trip around Spain and Portugal.

Vb 4C air. Great for self levelling works best when the slope is front to back or back to front not as good if the slope is side to side.
So I can get rid of my £40 milenco chocks. But is the system worth £8000? In my opinion no it’s not.

I think it’s 40kg but maybe more.
