Air bag usage

I'm considering using air bags to support a seat frame on my trike. I have a couple of question.

First. If I use multiple air bags will the overall weight rating increase?

I have a rigid frame and I'm constructing a secondary frame that I want to support with the air bags. I don't want to use a pivot point to attach tho to the frame. Will the airbags be enough to support the frame? Also will there be enough support to prevent side to side movement ?

Hate to say it, but i find those bags ugly.
As far as side to side movement- i believe if the front pivot is solid, nice and tight- there shouldn't be any side to side movements. With a sloppy pivot- the seat will be flimsy with springs also.
Only shocks seem to add side-ways stability.

I actually want to use them om a platform for my trike build. They really won't be seen. If I could get pics to post on here I could show you what I'm doing.
I was thinking of using 4-5 of them.

If i use more than one will the weight rating increase?

yes, the weight your seat can handle will multiply with additional airbags.
