Super Springs

Just heard about a product called Super Springs. A simple to install "bumper" solution to help reduce sway and bounce on RVs.

On our 25' class C with a sprinter chassis - the ride is OK overall however we do get a lot of sway turning into driveways for gas / stops. Kind of reminds me of the tilt a whirl carnival ride sometimes

Anyone out there install these on a class C? If so how did they perform?

Are you possibly referring to Sumo Springs. If so I installed them on the rear of my 23TR and it made a huge difference with sway from passing/meeting trucks to driveway curbs. I paid to have them installed. Took about 30 minutes and $80 If I recall.

Ron installed Sumo Springs (bump stop) front rear of our Axis. He is happy with the way the motorhome handles with them.

Actually they might work well on a 5th wheel.
You will have to have the capability vof mounting them yourself and possibly making the mounts. They have a builder series just for that.
I put a set on my wife's 1951 Ford pickup, and we love em.
