We have now driven a few kilometres with the new dampers. My best co-driver of all said at some point: Finally they’ve done this motorway too. And later: Watch out for ruts! In reality, the motorway had not been rebuilt, and there were already ruts several kilometres before the sign.
The car (Holiday Rambler Monaco) really runs so much better now that it makes a huge difference. While I used to have shoulder pain after just a few kilometres and had to “row” quite cramped to stay on course in crosswinds or ruts, it now drives like on rails. Fully fuelled, ready for the holidays and with a high tarpaulin trailer with a car in it. Trailer weight about 19 tonnes, 18 metres long, soon 4 metres high. I am really thrilled and am only annoyed that I didn’t get to know the Marquart company earlier. By the way, the suspension comfort has also gained, because otherwise there was sometimes a sagging that I haven’t experienced so far. I used to think: If an air suspension doesn’t take it, it’s just a big hole. Now I know that their dampers help there too. I’m all the more thrilled because my “old dampers” don’t seem to be broken either. In any case, they don’t oil, and when you squeeze or pull them apart, they really resist. But the difference is huge.
