RV carrying airbag set out for test in Alashan Desert
On October 1, 2021, we set out from Shanghai to the Badain Jilin Desert in the Alxa Right Banner, and the whole journey was 5000km. We drove the Dodge Ram pickup truck of AIRBFT company, installed a camel caravan, and towed a Bombardier X3 beach car at the back. If there was no air bag on the trailer, the rear suspension of Dodge Ram would reduce the wear of the tires and could not drive. After installing the AIRBFT4x4 air bag, we could raise the rear suspension, Even if a Bombardier x3 is towed behind it, it can be raised, which helps the RV drive safely.
