Any handling issues with the Open Road

Wife and I are looking at the 31SA.

Anyone have any experience with these? How do they handle overall?

Handling is a big concern of mine as my experience is with the Winnie Vista which I had to heavily modify to get it to handle decently.

I have the 31SA and from the beginning it did not handle bad at all. I was pushed by the 18 wheelers some but not to bad. I did the CHF and I now drive one handed most of the time. Below is the link for the CHF.
