Default Phat Camper Shocks.

Big Wallowy Camper seeks something to stiffen if it when cornering.
I know the ones named after the hapless Fawlty Towers character are epic on standard weight lowered Panel Vans but are they ok for standard height big fat heavy Buses?

You want a set of Sachs HD's

Transformed mine (also a motorhome, standard height).

I also added a pair of airbags to the rear springs.

Very pleased with it now

That'll be another thumbs up for Sachs HD from me plus I fitted airbags from Airlift at the same time (sit inside the rear coil springs) which all made a huge difference in reducing wallowiness!

I picked up a set of Meyle HD that came with all the fittings. Look identical to the Sachs HD i had previous and come with 2 year warranty.
Yet to fit them.
