Sumo Springs on an F53 24K chassis

Camping World in Vacaville, CA installed Sumo Springs on the front and rear of my 2017 Adventurer 35P, bullt on the optional 24,000 pound chassis.

The ride was much better than my last RV, but there was quite a bit of roll when turning out of driveways. Also, when driving over pavement that suddenly dropped, the RV would bounce up and down a few times.

Camping World did a good job on the install, completing it in one day on schedule and for the advertised “let us install it fo you” price.

On my 67 mile drive back to storage, I went over various terrain, some quite bumpy. The ride was a little stiffer than it used to be, which is unfortunate, but not too noticeable. Turning out of Camping Workd, there was much less roll in the RV as I turned onto the road, which was great. Overall, the RV just feels more “sure-footed”, if that makes sense. When the road dipped suddenly after going over a bridge, the coach still bounced a bit, but much less than before, making me feel more in control. Overall, i’m happy with the change.

I have a trip from the San Francisco area to Pismo Beach coming up, so I’ll let you know what my wife thinks of the Sumo Springs.

I found the same results on my Adventurer, too. It does firm up the ride and that’s a good thing mostly. Some bridge/road transitions can be jarring, but not terrible.
