The new V-Series Suspension System from Freightliner Custom Chassis unites the proven V-Ride rear suspension with a dynamic new VFS front suspension to deliver front-to-back stability, responsiveness and comfort with IFS-like performance. V-Series brings premium handling and stability; and safer, controlled braking to a wider range of coaches in the Class A market.
With V-Series, Class A diesel further establishes itself as the best experience in RVing with the most loyal and satisfied owners. From first-time adventurers to well-traveled road veterans, V-Series on the XC chassis makes the ultimate Class A ride and drive accessible to everyone.
The VFS offers the performance of an independent front suspension while retaining value and drastically improving ride quality compared to a traditional trailing-arm suspension.
The design of the VFS four-bar linkage controls the front of the coach to keep it from “diving” its nose down during hard braking. Instead, the suspension moves straight up and down like an IFS suspension, practically eliminating “brake dive.”
VFS uses a steering architecture and bell crank that drastically reduce bump steer, similar to a traditional trailering-arm front suspension. This optimized steering geometry further reduces bump steer to virtually zero.
The V-series Suspension System utilizes the V-Link (VFS) and V-Blade (V-Ride) assembly design for superior roll stability and more predictable handling in all road conditions — giving motorhome owners a confident driving experience.
