Billy, something like the Kettleman air ride system may help. I've never dealt with softening the ride of a truck while towing a fifth wheel. I have no experience to offer.

What I will say....with a longer motor home, in the 34' minimum range, your wife can get up and move around. An hour in the passenger seat, get up, move around, stretch, and then maybe an hour on the sofa or even in a recliner. Last weekend, we transported two of the grandkids home from a trip. My wife sat in the main cabin with them. In our coach, the recliner can be partially extended while underway.

The Class A passenger seats are usually more pillow like and recline. I have a terrible back and find that I'm most comfortable in my motor home seat.

The Monaco Knight has a 4 bag system instead of the 8 bag system. people that have had BOTH, did not like the ride of the 4 bag system. The reason they traded. You need to drive a 8 bag and the 4 bag and see if the ride is worth the cheaper cost of the Knight. Doug


The older Knight had the 4 bag , the newer Knights 2005 and up have the 8 bag suspension. The 8 bag Knight is the equivalent to the Holiday Ambasador. The poorer quality Monacos that people refer to where built in the later model 2008 and 2009.You should find a pretty good deal on 05 Knight.
