About how long did it take them? We are full timing in ours and looking to at having ours swapped out to the MorRyde IS in Aug. and don’t want alot of down time. And now that you have had it done are you happy with it? I talked to MorRyde and they said that they can reuse my disk brakes and wheels and tires if I want. Or should I upgrade to the bigger 17.5 wheels and tires?
Thanks

I tried to get them to do it when we ordered it but they wouldn’t. They said it should ride fine. Fine is good but I want MORE! Just like the commercial.
No, I just would like to have a better ride inside. Most of the roads are good but all the bridges stink. I have had several enclosed trailers with a Rubber ride axle's and you cant even compare the differences between the 2. Now you add in the difference of the solid axels to independent and again no comparison. Not to mention wear on spring hanger, spring bushings, Equalizers, or broken springs because of the roads we travel with our coaches at or very near max GVW. I know its going to add alittle more overall weight but I think its going to be well worth it in the long run down the road. Besides I want more, more is better..

Chuck, you're not the first one to bring this up on the forum but I don't think anybody has done it yet. When you upgrade it's my understanding that you can also increase your carrying capacity. This might void your frame warranty but I wouldn't be too worried about that because so far there hasn't been any frame issues that I'm aware of with the Redwoods.

Let me know how it turns out for you

Move cautiously regarding any modifications that would increase carrying capacity above rated. Although there may have been no Redwood frame failures, there certainly have been Lippert frame failures associated with other manufacturers. RW simply doesn't have the numbers off the production line as of yet.


On the other hand, I think you would be hard pressed to exceed the existing carrying capacity so the risk is minimal IMHO and the reward just might be there.

OK, I have to disagree a little here. It's very easy to exceed the gross, especially when you consider these are coming from the Factory a 1000 plus over the brochure spec. Because we live in our RW approx 9 months of the year (yea I know, still trying to convince the other half we need to sell the house) we're loaded heavy with 4K on the pin and 13K on the axles, so yes we're slightly over the 16.5K gross. We've already put on the 17.5 wheel and H rated tires, and have our appointment with Mor/ryde next Wednesday. And yes I know it will void the Lippert frame warranty, but I think the improvement in ride quality will put much less stress on the frame, so I'm not too worried.
