At Born Free, we pride ourselves on building safe, high quality, luxury RVs, and part of what sets us apart is looking ahead and integrating new technology and features into our coaches. Beginning with the launch of our 2014 models last June, Born Free is extremely excited to be the first and only RV in the industry to offer Liquid Springs adaptive suspension!
Liquid Springs is a Compressible Liquid Adaptive Suspension System originally developed as a revolutionary suspension solution for the ambulance and limousine industries.
Liquid Springs is superior to steel or air suspension systems because it automatically and instantaneously adapts stiffness and damping independently at each wheel! This reduces jarring from poor road conditions while also increasing roll and pitch control. If you’ve ever driven an RV across Nebraska or Kansas, you’ll be shocked by how much difference this makes! Fighting high winds and drafts from semis is a cinch!
Not only does Liquid Springs make driving easier and more comfortable, but it also makes it safer! Evasive maneuvers at high speeds are much more manageable. If you meander off onto the shoulder, bringing the RV back into the lane is no longer a white-knuckle experience.
Liquid Springs also improves your driving experience with automatic load-leveling, built-in diagnostics, and “kneeling.” Liquid Springs allows you to raise your Born Free three inches or lower it three inches (for a total travel of six inches) from resting. Now climbing steep driveways or squeezing into low garages is easier!
Because Liquid Springs is a closed hydraulic silicone system, there is no need for add-on components like air dryers or heaters, and it’s maintenance free!
Here’s a short video showing some of the benefits and features of Liquid Springs on a Born Free:
We are convinced that Liquid Springs is hands down the best ride and handling available in a Class C RV! It really has to be experienced to be believed – you’ve gotta get behind the wheel! Head to Lazydays in Tampa or Tucson to take a test drive – we know you’ll be impressed!
