What do you guys think about rv's with 4 airbags vs 8 airbags for comfort of driving.  I have test driven numerous rv's and the 2 taht I thought drove the best were the Newmar Allstar and the Allegro Bus.  Both of those vehicles have independent front suspension, so I don't know if it was the ifs or the airbags.

Freightliner and Spartan (which is the chasirs which both Newmar and Tiffin use) put 4 large volume airbags on their 2 axle chassis. Monaco, which produces Monaco, Holiday Rambler, Safari and Beaver, uses 8 low volume airbags. The IFS has a lot to do with it. The airbags react differently which may be what you are feeling.
