Anti sway devise

While traveling on the middle lane and passing a another RV we were hit by a hugh side wind out of the blue which pushed us over to the slow lane. We had passed far enough a head that we missed the other RV. But there was a moment that I had no control over our Class C. We were traveling around 62 mph when it happened.
What devises are that will help in that situation and which ones have you installed?
Thanks,
Jim

A company called hellwig makes some heavy duty antisway bars (front and back) for class c also you should look into installing some heavier duty shocks front and back also have them check the front end for proper alignment - just my two

Yep talking to Nancy at Helwig is the best thing you can do to fix the problem you are having... when you do talk to her tell her Seann from Saskatoon Canada says HI.

+Caster

Re:aignment, make sure the caster is set at the upper + end of spec and not centered in spec. Centered in spec may be suitable for city driving but you want upper end for stability at highway speeds.
