I am looking at a 2011 Mobile Suites with Mor-Ryde IS suspension. Can anyone tell me the life expectancy of the rubber portion?

I had it installed on a fifth wheel in 2004. In 2010 I sent pics to Mor-Ryde and they said the rubber was still fine. Traded the unit in 2011, so at least 7 yrs. Just to be sure, you can ask Mor-Ryde directly, they are pretty responsive.

We've only got about 17,000 miles on ours, but everything still looks like new. It's a great suspension system, BTW.

DEPENDS!!! The rubber sheer springs are replaceable. MORryde has a spec to determine if they are good.

Best system out there hands down!!!

I would be more concerned if it has the Schwintek slide system.

How difficult is to replace the rubber on IS? Do you have to go back to the manufactures for that?

I've known of people who have had the sheer springs sent to them and the work was done by a local trailer shop (not an RV dealership).
