A new Levelling system

Hi everyone.

We've agreed to sell/market a brand new fully automatic Hydraulic Levelling system for Motorhomes in the UK.
Anybody already got systems fitted and can offer up ideas/opinions on them? Would love to hear the good (and the bad) points....

Thanks

Will

Most people go for the E&P system and rate it very highly, have you any details on your system?

For us the main benefit of E&P was it's integration with the VB air suspension. The air suspension depresses to its lowest point which then allows a greater stroke for the E&P to level.

Wireless remote is a great plus point.

Interestingly it seems the new Goldschmitt air system can weigh the van at its present load.....maybe a levelling system could do the same?

Tilt function is handy for grey waste emptying.

Just a few to get you going!

There's quite a few details on the website www.ma-ve.co.uk but its still being built/worked on.
Essentially, the systems are all very similar its just the little "tweaks" that each make offers that make the difference.
For instance, the Ma-Ve ram has a Stainless foot with holes in to allow for better reaction and longer life. It also comes with 3 year warranty thats backed up by next day on site replacement in the Uk. Nice touches.

Thanks for that! I know Ma-Ve have no interest in Air Suspension integration - but it does sound impressive. They don't do a wireless remote either, its an App that you put on your SmartPhone/Android that links via BlueTooth.
I've not seen the van weighing system but i like the idea. I'll mention it to the manufacturer. I know he'll like the idea as he is a motorhomes. He's got a Carthago.
Tilt function is incorporated, as well as the facility to do wheel changes.

Thanks for your input

I was considering having a system fitted on mine but I think I will be going for a full air suspension as it will give me some levelling as well as the suspension upgrade.
There are a couple of threads running on levelling on Fun at the moment.

The full air systems are brilliant! They work so well and keep the van spot on. Think they're about £5.5k though.
I did go on Fun but they kicked me straight off. Ha ha

We have had and used a dozen hydraulic levelling systems on all our RVs. HWH I think they were.
But two dissimilar planks of wood serve me well on any Euro van we have had.

Hi Coppo, myself and Will set up both the same accounts on Motorhome Fun to do the same as we're doing here. The feedback benefits us and hopefully our advice can benefit you guys. However Motorhome Fun got a bit cranky because we've used company names as our User Names, it was declared advertising lol. We haven't bothered signing up with alternate names yet.

Phil.
