ok,--- i've got 400 plus miles on my donvel setup------ ya just can't ignore the laws of physics and gravity, however that said----- wooowww. this is realllllllly cool we came from arlington to amarillio tx today, overall great roads, however, there are places that aren't great. the donvel smoothes them out noticably--- the greatest thing is the lack of sway and the absence of kick back in the steering wheel. the and the hammering at approach slabs is less.---- is it a cure for all ills????- no and no again. is it woth it --- YES,FOR ME!!!!!!!! for you i dunnnoo--- anyway, ask me if you have questions. am i gettting anything from donvel? NO, just a good product done by an honest gentleman who cares 'bout whether you are satisfied. oh--- cross winds are early not noticable. --- mase

Good report, Mase, and thank you! Gonna hafta consider this one for whatever truck ends up being the basis for "Da Rig". By the sound of things, overall stability IS improved, which is ALWAYS a good thing! It's stuff like this (AND people like you Mase) that makes this a great site! Thanks again

I agree completely with Mase's comments... we have a few thousand miles on our rig since adding the Donvel air stabilizers and the difference is very noticable. Yup, it still rides like a truck (funny, it looks like one too) but the slap, slap, slap of uneven concrete joints and the pogo-sticking on potholes is very controled.

Love the product and Don was a dream to work with.

Not to discount this product, but was there a reason you guys did not look at Broc's air-ride system?

In my case it was because I never heard of them before your message. I guess I should have searched harder for other options.
