2002 Vista (VW chassis) air bags replacements

Anyone know what can replacements for these?
One side looks like OEM from 2002, the other is different style...both rotted and don't hold air.
If I can get any info on what Winnebago used in their suspension systems...maker, sizes (diameters, length, capacity, etc) I'd be grateful.

Winnebago generally has nothing to do with chassis parts on the motorhomes built on various chassis. I would guess it is either a VW part, or an aftermarket addition made by a previous owner.

Either way, from the photos it does not look like anything that special. There are likely any number of current day Air Bags that could be used on that suspension.

Truck Specialty shops do this kind of work. You might try on of them.

Only the cab is VW, everything else is Winnebago.

From that image it appears that everything concerning the chassis but the rear suspension would be VW parts.

Still a leaf spring airbag is a common item. Is there something unique that requires it to be a Winnebago specific part?

That model is based on the Volkswagen Transporter EuroVan T-4. Perhaps you can find more info looking for parts info for the EuroVan?

Sorry I’m not much help. But my original suggestion of taking it to a truck suspension shop might be your best bet.

Also Google’s photo App cannot be used to host images on other websites. To use those images copy them to your computer, tablet or phone and then attach them to your post normally.

The air bags are not VW. I had a VW Vista for 5 yrs. I ordered air bags for a 3/4 ton Chevy pickup and installed them myself. Do not drill holes in the frame to mount them. Your old ones are junk. I had the bags for 4 years and 50K miles. Besides dramatically improving the ride they added considerable stability in cross winds. You might look at Sumo air bags too. They are easier to mount and donít require additional air pressure. Plan on $500 to $1000. Well worth the price though

Update

Got the rig up on jack stands to get the bags off...
And NOTHING! I can't get it at them because I can't get the wheels off...SEEMS that when I had new tires put on last year they so tightened the lugs (all the lugs!) I can't budge them...used lug wrench, battery impact wrench, even socket with breaker bar (bent handle)...
And still having hard time finding anyone I can take it to to even loosen things so I can do it myself...

Frustration has I new definition...
