Default Anybody install SumoSprings?

I’m looking at installing a set of Sumo Springs on the rear my Promaster Conversion van. Has anybody used these? I’ve read they reduce the side roll.

If you can't find reams of testimonials on it using a google search, or searching this site, head over to Facebook and look in the Travato owners group or Class B Camper Vans group.

I installed front and rear Sumo Springs on a 2018 Travato. They are easy to install, you don't even have to remove the tires. There are a few good videos on You tube that will give you some good installation tips.

I only drove the Travato less than 100 miles without the Sumo Springs, so I don't have much to go on to make a before / after comparison. After installation, the Travato still has some body roll, but it isn't horrible. It handles pretty well on the highway at 65-70 MPH, after that is gets a little busy. I am happy with the Sumo Springs, but I would still like to try a few more things to improve the handling.

Sounds good, if you find anything else to help reduce the body roll please post it here. I’m looking to eliminate as much as possible, I don’t like that feeling of tipping over.

It seems that everyone is installing them over on the Roadtrek/Hymer Promaster pages on Facebook. AND everyone is very happy and recommends them. It does raise the height between 1-1.5"


Those that have installed after a couple years of driving without are probably the happiest.

Awesome! I’ll start with the rear and see how it goes, then fronts if needed. The next step will be the rear bilstein shocks

I just installed a road master rear anti swaybar on my 2006 pleasureway. Incredible improvement in reduction of body roll in turns.

Iíll definitely look into it.
Is it a direct bolt on item?

I looked into anti sway bars and found a comparable Hellwig, for a lot less that the Roadmaster. Might be my next project before the shocks.

550.00 US
Direct bolt on to my knowledge. May have had to drill a hole in frame though. Mine also has a set of 2" rear wheel spacers. Really impressed with the sway bar.
