Steering seems loose! 2004 Scottsdale

New to motohoming and get my best answers from this forum. I have a 2004Newmar Scottsdale and it seems to me that have to steer alot even on straight flat roads. I saw a stabalizer bar at camping world and was just wandering if any of you have used this and if it helps.
Also has anyone else experienced this steering problem or if it is normal for a class A, my old class C didn't seem to wander quite like this.

Hi ace66,
Class C drives like a car. Class A drives like a truck. There is more side to side movement because there is a lot of weight going from side to side because of any imperfections in the road being flat. The chassis will follow the weight shift of the coach. If you are sure you are on a flat road and the coach drives like a dog hunting rabbits, consider:
1. Make sure all the suspension (front an rear) are in good working order and adjusted correctly.
2. Have the steer axle tires aligned.
3. There are quite few after market suspension products. Track bar (front and rear), shocks, steering stabilizer, etc.
4. Go to RV & Truck Parts - Suspension Steering Brakes - Towing and take a look at some of the choices.
If you decide to get a steering stabilizer, I recommend the Blue Ox Tru-Center. Go to Blue Ox TC35270 TruCenter Steering Stabilizer

None of this is cheap. However, I have installed quite a few after market suspension and steering products and am very pleased with the results.
