2007 Allegro Open Bay handling improvement

I'm in the second week of owning this coach. What are some of the "proven" ways to improve the steering?

You didn't give any specifics; but several of us have added a steering stabilizer system to reduce the arm effort to keep her straight ahead.

See these two discussions:

If you're having handling problems, the first thing to do is to consider is getting an alignment. Then weigh the coach (preferably separately on all 4 corners, but at least weigh each each axle) as loaded for travel, then adjust tire pressures according to the tire manufacturer's inflation-load chart.

If you're still having handling problems, adding a rear track bar is probably the next best step to take.

+1 for PAZ. Weigh the coach and set tire pressure accordingly. Alignment next along with a rear track bar.
