Air Lift - Diego Ranch - Featuring WirelessOne™ - #LifeOnAir


Down in Arkansas, there’s a very special place called Diego Ranch. Owned and managed by Michael Jackson, Diego Ranch Inc. is a nonprofit, 501(c) that provides equine assisted services to children and adults with mental, emotional, and physical disabilities. The team at Diego Ranch also serves local schools, churches, retirement homes, and everything in between, offering riding lessons and instruction for proper safety around horses.

In order to make all of this happen, Michael has to be able to get his equine therapists to his clients in need. The ranch has three trailers – a 23-foot long, bumper-pull, three horse trailer; a 28-foot long, bumper-pull, flatbed cargo trailer; and a 28-foot long, gooseneck flatbed trailer. When you’re towing and hauling stuff that big, and assets as priceless as their equine therapists, you want to feel safe and secure when on the road.

In 2019, Michael added a set of our LoadLifter 7500XL air springs and the WirelessOne on-board air compressor system to his 2017 Ford F-250 in an effort to get the vehicle level and driving comfortably. The system was installed quickly and professionally by DNW Truck Accessories in Jonesboro, Arkansas (along with a new set of tires), and Michael was back on the road in only a few hours.

“Not only is it safer for us, but oncoming traffic doesn’t flash bright lights at us anymore. We feel more confident in less wear and tear on the tires and suspension of the truck and trailers. So far, it looks like our fuel mileage has increased, which is a huge savings as well.”

At Air Lift, we are honored to play a small role in helping Diego Ranch to create better lives and create true and lasting change within their community. Special thanks to Michael Jackson, the team at Diego Ranch, and all of the clients for sharing their #lifeonair with us!

Tested. Proven. Safe | Always On Liberty | Full-Time RVers | TRAILER


After watching a GoRVing commercial, Dan and Lisa Brown entertained the adventurous idea of permanent RV living. Now, five years later, they travel the country in their heavy-duty Ram truck, towing their full-time home behind them.

Always On Liberty began after Dan and Lisa retired from the U.S. Coast Guard to pursue their passion for RVing. They loved taking extended trips but always had to return home to care for their house and pets.

Finally, they decided to sell everything, pack up their cats and motorcycles and make RVing their full-time lifestyle. The name “Always On Liberty” came from their Coast Guard days. Time off was called “liberty.” Jealous of their ship comrades who always seemed to be on liberty, Dan and Lisa thought the name was a perfect fit for their new lifestyle – taking permanent time off: Always On Liberty.

Their RV home is a 41-foot 2016 Heartland Landmark Ashland 5th wheel that weighs roughly 18,000 pounds. It is completely self-contained and self-sustainable with solar panels and a clean water supply. To ensure quality and safety for the long-term, Dan and Lisa chose the CURT Q24 5th wheel hitch to tow their 5th wheel trailer.
