Stabalizers for a Jayco Precept 31UL

We have a 2016 Jayco Precept 31UL.
Does anyone have any ideas for installing stabalizers?
At 50 mph, it seems to float at the front end, and is very hard to handle.

First thing is to inflate tires to 90 psi minimum, 100 is better. This will give a harsher ride but the sidewall flex will be in check and improve handling. Then do a search for the CHF ( Cheap Handling Fix). You should see a big change then. Some have gone on and added a steering stabilizer but I did not need this for my 35UN (longer wheelbase). I did add a rear trac bar and my rig drives very nice, even in wind and heavy traffic.

Driving a class A rig is a new experience so if this your first one you should drive it a while before you drop a load of cash on it. Tire pressure and CHF may be all you need??

We installed the front stabilization kit- it seems to take the edge off of the monster- as stated increasing the tire pressure helps a bit too- am considering the rear stabilizer/sway bar but not sure it will help much.

No MH does exceptional in cross winds, however the 31UL is a bit more squirrelly than most.

I made a trip to Alaska and the crosswinds were the hassle for me, the two fixes I have tried allow me to opearate (with no wind) safer and more comfortable.

Get the front end aligned and tire pressure to 95 PSI first.
