Ready for a Liquid Ride? A Guide to Choosing between Factory and Aftermarket Install

If you’re a fan of the RV life – you either already have one, are looking for one, or looking to upgrade. All fun things. And as an RV enthusiast, you know that ride quality is a major factor during travel. Standard suspensions provide the best handling they can; but drivers still feel the road, wind, and other factors when cruising toward their destination. A LiqiudSpring suspension upgrade – whether factory installed or aftermarket – can substantially increase comfort, control, and confidence. Let’s compare the two installation options to help you decide which is best for you.

Buying an RV with LiquidSpring as a Factory Option

Buying an RV with LiquidSpring as a factory option means that the system is installed by the manufacturer before you take delivery of the RV. This option offers several advantages, including:

  1. Integration with the RV: When the system is installed by the manufacturer, it is integrated into the RV’s design, ensuring optimal performance and compatibility.
  2. Factory warranty: The LiquidSpring system installed by the manufacturer comes with a factory warranty that covers any defects or malfunctions in the system. This can provide peace of mind and save you money on repairs if anything goes wrong.
  3. No additional installation costs: Since the system is installed by the manufacturer, there are no additional installation costs or labor fees to worry about.
  4. Time saved: Pre-installed means ready to roll. As soon as you receive your RV, complete with LiquidSpring suspension, you are ready for a smooth adventure. 

Installing a LiquidSpring System Post-Purchase

Installing a LiquidSpring system post-purchase involves retrofitting the system onto your RV after you’ve already taken delivery. This option has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, including:

  1. Availability: If your RV manufacturer doesn’t offer LiquidSpring as a factory option, installing it post-purchase may be your only option.
  2. Additional costs: Installing a LiquidSpring system post-purchase can be more expensive than buying an RV with the system already installed as a factory option. You’ll need to factor in the cost of the system itself, as well as installation fees and labor costs.
  3. But also, cost savings: You don’t need to buy a new RV if you don’t want to. Installing a LiquidSpring on your existing ride is feasible and cost-effective when comparing the price of the system against the cost of a new vehicle.
  4. No factory warranty: Unlike an RV with a LiquidSpring system installed as a factory option, retrofitting the system onto your RV won’t come with a factory warranty. This means you’ll need to rely on the warranty offered by the system manufacturer or installation partner.
  5. Customization: Installing a LiquidSpring system post-purchase allows you to customize the system to your RV’s specific weight and chassis. This can ensure optimal performance and ride quality.

Installing LiquidSpring for RVs Results in a Smooth Ride 

Choosing whether to buy an RV with LiquidSpring as a factory option or install it post-purchase depends on your budget, availability, and customization needs. While buying an RV with LiquidSpring already installed as a factory option offers integration with the RV, factory warranty, and no additional installation costs, retrofitting the system onto your existing RV allows you to purchase the RV you want (even if it does not offer a factory option for LiquidSpring), and improve your ride without having to purchase a new RV.
