Good to hear.  Remember, we are talking about 30+ year old RVs and not custom classic autos so, I'm actually rather surprised they made them for as long as did.

Yes that's true, I just figured why stop making them once you have started? They manufacture them as needed anyways, there's none sitting on the shelf so what would they have to loose as the air bags themselves are used in a handful of other kits too. I can see them being a low selling item but when you have went through the work of designing the brackets and kit why would you say no to a sale?

Simple.  The demand for air bags for thirty... five... year old RVs is nearly zilch.. so, why should the manuacturer go to the expense of changing the production set-up just to make what? Two or three sets a year?  ... maybe?   Imean, why doesn't Ford, Dodge, Chevy....keep manufacturing all the parts for all the cars of the 1970's?  There were a lot more of them made and they're valuable classics now.  Not enough demand for a major manufacturer to justify the cost of production.

Hi, My question is why do you need the upper bracket; Why not just drill a couple of holes in the frame and bolt the bag right to it?  I'm considering removing a couple of leaves from the springs to lower the motorhome 'cause, well, it would look cool! Thought I'd use the air bags to get it back to stock height when traveling and leveling it when I camp. Any thoughts?
