Will SumoSprings give my motorhome a smoother ride?
Out of all of the questions we get asked, this is by far the most popular when talking about motorhomes. I spoke with a customer last week who made the comment, “I spent my life savings on a premiere coach and felt like I was riding in an old tractor!” The ride is typically described as rough and coach owners complain about the excessive cabin noise. One customer shared, “Before the SumoSprings were installed, my wife would not go in the coach and I was about to sell it. The porpoising made her sicker than a rookie sailor and the noise was so loud we couldn’t talk to each other. After the SumoSprings, she actually enjoys riding in the coach and we are on the road more than ever before. The only down side is now we have to talk to each other!”
How do SumoSprings provide a smoother ride?
Not to sound like an engineering geek, because I am not, I want to use engineering lingo to help explain why SumoSprings smooth your ride. SumoSprings possess damping properties not found in other air spring alternatives. SumoSprings are truly unique; the damping properties differentiate material benefits against standard suspension components and enhancement alternatives. SumoSprings restrain vibratory motion by dissipating energy. They absorb road shock otherwise sent through the frame, coach, and coach components. Damping properties inherent in SumoSprings translate into reduced internal noise and vibration. Absorbing road shock and vibrations increases the value and extends the life of moving components: cabinets, televisions, tables, etc. Eliminating loud noises caused by vibrating beds, tables, cabinets, cutlery, and more, enhances driver and passenger enjoyment while traveling.
SumoSprings damping properties enhance comfort, feeling of safety, and provide a superior driving experience. Internal noise and vibrations are remedied – ownership experience is elevated – with SumoSprings.
What are coach owners saying? “Feel the difference!”
Have you experienced the SumoSprings difference? Share on our forums for others to read. Although I share honest feedback and information, nothing I write in any blog post is going to convey the same message as your personal experience. Here is an e-mail I received from a motorhome owner who is now a SumoSprings advocate:
This is the fourth motorhome I have owned. Last year alone, I put 14,000 miles on the coach. I have a lot of experience driving motorhomes all across the country. The first time I drove this new coach, I came into a familiar turn on the highway posted at 50mph. It was scary! I had to slow down below 40mph. I would fight the wheel to get the coach to turn. I would hit a bump and the whole coach would feel it and jar. With SumoSprings, the rigidity is gone and there is a softness when going over bumps and rougher terrain. The top-heavy feeling of the coach is gone and I have confidence going into turns and winding roads. With SumoSprings, I can now go into the familiar highway turn at 60mph with no problem! Before SumoSprings, I was unhappy with my coach. Now, I love it!
