One of this Excursion's uses is as tow mule for Llado's 30-foot weekend-warrior trailer. Soft rear suspension does not a good tow-vehicle make, so a custom airbag setup stiffens the rear suspension on command. When the Air Ride Technologies 'bags are pressurized, they push their input through the antisway bar links, adding precious pounds to the rear suspension' spring rate. After the trailer has been safely towed and unhitched, the 'bags can be deflated for an enjoyable ride in the unloaded Excursion.
