Well here is the latest thing to hit the heavy duty truck market. POWER RACK AND PINION STEERING!! What do you think? It is being installe on new FReightliner trucks. They claim less driver fatigue, longer tire wear and more. If it will work on trucks it will work on motor homes only better, I would think. For more info go to www.truckinfo.com

I love rack-n-pinion steering on my cars. How much cost will it add to the price of a new truck / chassis / motor home?
