Technical tip: getting your motorhome ready for holiday

MotorhomeSpring is here and that means we’re all itching to get out of doors again! The closer summer gets, the more the ‘travel bug’ starts to bite. We know exactly what you mean! But, is your motorhome all ‘ready to go’?

When the weather gods are smiling and it’s time to start thinking about that well-earned trip away, you don’t want any anxiety about comfort and safety when driving your home on wheels. You want to be able to benefit not only from maximum ride comfort during your journey but also the highest levels of safety. Your holiday should start relaxed – that’s why a house on wheels that handles perfectly is a must.

Whether it’s a weekend getaway or a full-on road trip to visit some of your favourite countries – your home on wheels has been stationary for long enough. But before you head off in your motorhome, it does need some extra care and attention plus the necessary checks and inspections.

Most likely, all it will need is the usual standard checks: the oil level, tyre pressures and the battery status. Checking these and making the necessary adjustments is extremely important before you set out on your journey. However, a key aspect often gets left out of the picture; the chassis of your motorhome.

Why is it so important to consider the chassis of your motorhome?

Your pride and joy will be loaded up to the gunnels – of course – with everything you need for your trip. So much so, it could be so overloaded that it reaches or even exceeds its ‘technically permissible maximum weight’. The weight of the motorhome superstructure itself already puts the suspension under a great deal of strain. In fact, the existing suspension on your motorhome is not designed to cope with this amount of weight, which means that your motorhome will start to ‘drift’ when you are driving. When your motorhome drifts, there is not enough spring travel. So, when the shock absorber on your motorhome starts to compress, the bump stop will be reached.

We offer various solutions to these suspension and related problems – just a few of the suspension problems motorhome owners regularly report experiencing.

A suspension solution for almost every application

VB-Airsuspension has the right product available for more or less every application and/or (suspension) problem, including for vehicles that do a specific job. Many of these come up against regular problems that can negatively impact the role they are meant to perform. Similarly, there are cases where it’s a question of: “Surely, there’s a much easier way to do this?” or “Couldn’t this be made much more convenient or comfortable?”. Motorhome owners, drivers of emergency vehicles (e.g. ambulances), drivers of car transporters and other vehicles regularly complain of issues that needlessly make their job harder, and sometimes they find the vehicle they use is missing certain functionality. And, beyond that, you have to consider wheelchair accessible vehicles, animal transport and other specialist vehicles. Here too, a range of improvements can often be fitted in terms of safety and comfort, both for the driver and for any passengers. A selection of our applications are described here:

VB Air Suspension Applications


The ultimate means of transport for those who want to take their own road and have the freedom to keep driving or stop whenever they want. Strong crosswinds, instability in some driving situations, vehicle drift and rattling in the interior are some of the common issues experienced by motorhome owners. Issues that are easy to resolve with one of our advanced suspension systems. When you’re heading off for a well-deserved break, you don’t want unneeded stress because your motorhome does not feel comfortable or safe on the road.

Passenger transport – Minibuses

Sometimes your passengers – and you as the driver – will be travelling for many hours on end. In this case, your passengers must be conveyed as conveniently and comfortably as possible. When you think of a comfortable minibus or coach, the first thing you think of is probably having enough legroom and good onboard facilities. But, if a journey is perceived as uncomfortable, it’s usually not to do with facilities or lack of them, rather factors like noise from the interior and being able to feel unevenness and bumps in the road. The products from VB-Airsuspension offer various solutions to make the journey as comfortable as possible for you and your passengers.

Car transport

Safety for pedestrians has been improved by the long, low bonnet on modern vehicles. However, this creates extra challenges for car transporters and breakdown trucks when loading and unloading vehicles. A big ramp angle and the lack of a kneeling function frequently make this process more difficult. When transporting vehicles, safety is clearly of the essence for car transport and breakdown firms. Extra care must be taken when loading and unloading, and this is not always an easy task. When attending to someone who is stuck at the roadside, the breakdown truck driver will want the customer to feel reassured that their vehicle is being handled properly. The vehicle must effectively meet the requirements of the car transport or breakdown firm so that drivers can get on with the job in hand without any unnecessary worries. Comfort and convenience for the customer and for the breakdown or car transport driver – that’s what our products are about.

Animal transport

Stress is a significant risk factor in animal transport. When transporting animals, it’s not just about a comfortable journey for you, it’s about what’s good for your passengers too. Animals are highly sensitive and will feel every pothole and bump in the road. A sense of instability and a steep ramp can also cause stress for animals. Air suspension makes the journey smoother for both animals and humans. Your animal will arrive more relaxed and you will have a more comfortable ride too, all because of a good suspension system.

Emergency service vehicles

Emergency service vehicles, such as ambulances, regularly travel fully laden and are fitted out with high-tech, weighty paramedic equipment. We all know that these vehicles are critical to saving life and limb and, in an emergency, they need to get to the patient and convey them to the hospital as quickly as possible. So, the last thing the driver needs is a vehicle where the access is too high. Stability and safety are of key importance in an emergency. The driver must be able to rely on the vehicle to perform at its best and to be easily manoeuvrable thanks to a solid suspension system.

Wheelchair accessible transport

When conveying passengers, you want the journey to be as comfortable and safe as possible. Passengers should feel comfortable and confident at all times as they travel to their destination. It is not always easy to get the weight distribution right when the vehicle is carrying someone in a wheelchair. If the weight cannot be distributed evenly with an unbalanced or maximum load, this can cause the original suspension to ‘sag’ at the rear of the vehicle, with a detrimental effect on ride comfort. A constant ride height is essential for both the driver and the wheelchair user, something that can be easily achieved with one of our products.

Service vehicles

A service vehicle is your workshop and transport all rolled into one. To be able to provide a full service and for peace of mind, you want to have all your tools and materials to hand wherever you are so that you are prepared for every eventuality when attending a customer. The only problem with this is that your vehicle is frequently heavily laden. Your materials will not usually be evenly distributed in the vehicle, which can result in an unpleasant driving experience since the vehicle is lopsided. Air suspension can remedy this by automatically adjusting your vehicle in the horizontal plane. So, you get a more comfortable and safer ride.

VB-Airsuspension (air) suspension systems provide solutions for your suspension problems, allowing drivers and passengers to enjoy optimum ride comfort, increased stability and greater safety on the road and at their destination.

With over 20 years’ engineering experience, Rosmia is the UK’s longest-serving VB Air Suspension Premium Dealer, comprising a team of fully accredited installers who work with both competence and care.
