I have found another mgf that makes a better leveling bag. I think there a better design. Check out the website, Ive been using them for a year and a half.. Any questions let me know.. [emoticon]

Sorry I prefer the levelairs much better. I don't like one large pillow, lots of extra material that doesn't need to be there, which means lots of extra time to inflate. Those bags are 24" wide, what for? The tire is less than 8". Because of the size it looks sloppy to me when inflated. Not sure of what the material is but the levelairs are made of some really, really heavy thick material. I made an adaptor that fills both my bags at the same time so having one bag doesn't speed anything up for me. Plus they want more money for the one large bag than I paid for both of my levelairs. Sorry, but if it works for you great!! That's all that matters, but I still feel the levelairs were the best airbag made.

Those are great. Does driving over the channel with the tires ruin anything?

The original maker of Levelairs is no longer making them, and that is a loss for all of us because he was a really great guy and this was his idea that he made a reality. Guy's bags were very high quality and worth every nickel I paid for them.


I didn't realize he was no longer in business ... did he sell out to another company or are they no longer available?

Why do you assume because he is no longer in business it was a quality issue? I promise you it is a very, very rare possibility it had anything to do with a quality issue. I have a set, do you? They are much higher than anything on this post, so far!! It was a small operation, just a couple men, so I am thinking illness or retirement. I will call today and see what I can find. I always hoped he would end up selling the idea to a large company like Camco who could mass produce them and have them in all the RV stores. I think the price would drop to around $99 a pair which would be a great price and I believe folks would buy them. If you haven't used them, you have no idea how wonderful they are. Guy is also a top notch fella, and I pray he is OK. Hey maybe he will sell me the patent!!jking!!

Has anyone who uses this product had any leaks? It seems that a leak could potentially ruin the chassis and leveling jacks when all the weight shifts to the corners.

I used the channel because it is stronger, no flexing between bolts. It also protects nut and bolt heads from damage. The tire pressure is distributed over the entire width not just the on nuts and bolts. The tires can easily roll over the 1 1/4" ends.
