Although a few "well heeled" motorhomers may have opted to have "full air suspension" from new-ish(*so that it totally replaces the existing springs etc all 'round), usually when "air suspension" is mentioned, it just means that it has additional air assistors(bellows,if you like) fitted to the rear axle...and being "air", they are adjustable, either by an onboard compressor or, as we had with ours, just valves under the rear wheel arches.
They can get fitted for a number of reasons-
To help stop excessive body roll, to gain additional rear *ground clearance(*as it was in our case) or to form part of a possible GVW "up-rate".
Although we thought our previous MH "handled"(for want of a better word ) well enough in standard form, it was far better(tauter, more stable)once they were fitted.
Having said that, in the scheme of things, they aren't that expensive to have fitted anyway(a DIY job in many cases), so I wouldn't let the fact that a vehicle has them sway your decision too much..
