Hi alicksuwd

You say you are interested in fitting the Dunlop System
these are sold by Marcle Leisure , have you been on their web site & looked at the Installation Instructions ?

print them out & read them carefully & then you can decide if you are up to it with your injured wrist

you don't say what Boxer you have but here is a link to one of them


marcle leisure "Dunlop Installation instruction"


by the way do you have ABS brakes or not ?
You have to adjust the load sensing valsve if you don't have ABS!


i can see why you need air rides with that lovely NEWFIE

I fitted mine in about two hours.
Bump stops came out easy

A much improved ride.

I think !!!:- you will either have ABS or an LSV - load sensing valve

so print off the installation instructions climb under the camper & have a look near the back axle to see if the LSV is there see picture 13 in the link on my previous post

or for a photo look at this:-

you say you have a 2900kg chassis upgraded to 3200kg - have you taken the camper to a weigh bridge to check the GVW with it loaded up ready for a trip with dog & all passengers on board ?



When we had our brown Newfie our campers gas fire front kept rusting as she would lean against it after swimming in the sea!

thanks for that LSV information trek.

the van has been on a weighbridge, this was the reason for having it replated, i've got loads to play with even when ready to go (including the big guy)

i'm thinking that i give my wrist a couple of weeks, get hold of creeper board and go for it
