No...not the driver[emoticon]
We're selling our house and moving to another state.
Before we settle there we want to take a month or so and do some of the traveling we haven't been able to do all these years.
My wife has online tasks to do for our business and to that end she'd like to be able to work at a table or desk (Secured for safety) while we drive.
We want to make the best choice of Class A platform - Gas or DP? - with this in mind as one of the decision criteria.
Does anyone have experience with this? Will the ride be smooth enough for that? Our RV experience is an 80's Winnebago Elandan that we never really took out on a long trip and a Chevy conversion van. Neither would have been good at this although the van was better than the Elandan.

Thanks for looking!

Does she get motion sick easily? My wife can only look at her phone for a few minutes at a time or she will be sick. If we are in stop and go or stop lights, she gets sick even looking up. She could never look at a computer screen - neither could I...

That's not an issue - for either of us for that matter.

Right..I guess I should re-frame the question asking if there's enough difference in the smoothness of the ride from a gasser to an air suspension diesel to warrant the price difference. My only experience being the Winnie which pretty much rode like a school bus.

You need what ever will give the smoothest ride.

I love my class C, but it would NOT fit your needs as it comes from the factory.

I wonder if an air ride could be retro fitted or if there is a class C out there with air ride?

That's pretty much the same thing. What's your rig?

Thanks for the reply!
We're not shopping C's..but I did look at the VB system. Looks like it's kind of Sprinter Focused but in any event the price installed is about $7,500 - as of 2018 which seems to be the date of most information.

This is one of those things where I"d need to be there to tell you more.

The SAFEST seat is the passenger seat properly belted in
Now on SOME RV's you can, with a bit of work, put a small desk top there with little issue on mine there is a "Storage compartment" (The "Glove box) I could take the lid off it and attach a larger desktop type platform.
There is some danger in this (pad the exposed end) and a few other complications but... I have no better answer.


Home is where I park it.
