RV chassis upgrades

You’ll find those great chassis upgrades on, Brazel’s online webstore for RV chassis related upgrades, such as suspension enhancements, and engine performance packages. You can also find their specialty repair services only offered by Brazel.

Hydraulic levelers

Leveling up is no game, it’s serious business. Brazel Inc. has acquired RVA, a company specifically to manufacture and supply replacement hydraulic levelers and their associated parts for tens of thousands of motorhomes. RVA levelers were original equipment on most Monaco, Holiday Rambler, Beaver and Safari motor coaches from the 1980s through mid-2000s.

RV upgrade packages

By focusing on these very specific, niche products and services, Brazel has become the uncontested expert on them. Browsing through their websites is unlike any other. Instead of cute curtains and plastic flamingos, you’ll find suspension upgrade packages for the Ford F53 chassis that thousands upon thousands of Class As sit on. Along those same lines, you’ll find a Ford V10 UltraPower RV Tune to dial in your motorhome’s performance.

You’ll also find a wide variety of prepackaged towing packages for RVs with air brakes, or those with hydraulic brakes. Brazel has taken the mystery out of which combinations of tow bars and auxiliary braking systems to use by properly pairing them together for you.
