Thanks to all of you for the great feedback, recommendations and experiences with steering stabilizers! I'm ordering the Saf-T-Plus stabilizer and will see how it does then consider adding the rear track bar. Can't wait to feel the difference on our next trip.

Thanks!

We have a 16 29 UR, same Base as the 31 UL and we added day one a Safe T Plus , took off for Florida from Vermont and 4,153 miles later we were very impressed with the solid feel and control. Have it installed by a certified tech. it is worth the added cost

Sumo Springs?

Below is a YouTube video from a couple that does full time living.
They recently installed Sumo Springs on their class a and found
The upgrade to be terrific. Also, they mentioned an article
In Motorhome Magazine too.

below is some comments from IVR2 forum:

Sumos will really help with the side to side & up and down rocking, like when you leave a gas station. They'll really help. Also, you might first search the forum for the CHF (cheap handling fix) and try that. It's just a sway bar adjustment. Sumos on all 4 wheels will run around $1300, the CHF is free.

You might also research shocks. I have Bilsteins on my MH, but have read about how goodKonis are. Some people say the Konis made a big improvement in the ride. If I ever see them on sale I just might change to Konis.

I've come to the conclusion that with the Safe-T-Plus and the Sumos the ride & handling of my F53 is about as good as it can get. Those upgrades changed it from acceptable to pretty good. It's a joy to drive & with the 5 Star Tune, the V-10 is pretty tame in hilly country

additional Sumo Springs comments

a few other comments on the Sumo Springs mod:

I just installed the solos on the front only and it made a lot of front end noise go away. We had around 50 mph side wind coming back from NE Oklahoma and it handled really good but I didn't so had to stop near Durant OK.

After a trip to Yellowstone last year we put Solo's on all four corners of our mh. We just got back from 2500 mile trip to Utah to do the National Parks. Every day we drove it was windy. The Sumo's made a huge difference in the handling. Truck's don't blow the mh around like they used too. Dips and bumps are not near as bad. They even seem to dampen some of the road noise. For me they were well worth the money spent and the time to install. Did the install myself and it was really no big deal. The Sumo's and the 5Star tune have made a world of difference in our mh. We can't afford a pricey dp with air ride so to me this was the way to go.
