Got one in April for my 2013 Breeze. Before I had it installed I could barely keep the unit in one lane. As explained to me, this is a relatively short motorhome with a heavy motor in back. It makes the front end light and prone to wander. Safety Plus fixed this. I would not be surprised to see them installed one day on every Breeze that comes out of Red Bay.

Installed one on our 2017 Phaeton QBH. Wasn't toooooo bad driving before, but now I can drive one handed in crosswinds and/or semis passing. That coupled with the additional safety of steering tire blowout stability makes the cost seemingly like safety insurance + bonus. Bottom line, glad I put one on.

Agree with all. I have a safety T steer. Love it. Great company. Also, weigh your coach and look at load pressures from your tire manufacturer. Mine were over inflated. Fixed it to spec and made driving even better..

I've had them installed on two RVs and would never own one without Safetplus. On a gasser it helps with steering over rough roads and ruts and it helps in windy conditions. But the main reason to install it is in case of a blowout. There's a video that shows a big rig dash cam filming a large class A that experienced a blowout. The Motorhome and the truck both rolled over.

Best money I have spent on my 2017 Phaeton. Don't hesitate, install a Safe-T-Plus. You will be glad you did.

I also feel it was the best $$$ I have spent on my 2016 36LA. Now my stearing stays centered easily. Because of this, staying in the lane is easier, I have less fatigue, and my wife is more willing to help drive. The effect of passing trucks with their wind wake is gone.

Did the same on our 2010 38QBA. Steering before and after was like night and day. Kicked myself a bit for not adding it MUCH sooner.

There is no downside to installing a Safe T Plus! Millions of miles in the trucking industry have proved it.

I've got millions of miles in the trucking industry and have never known anyone that has one. I've seen them advertised but don't know anyone to have ever bought one

I just don't understand all the hype about the chassis mods to help driving a MH. I have owned a Winnie and a Tiffin both had stock F53 chassis and drove just fine. We average around 300 miles a day(6 or 7 hours) when traveling and are not exhausted or fatigued by the drive. We like to stop and see the local sights. Maybe if you are doing a 12 hour non stop day of driving these mods are needed.

You may be absolutely correct. The Safe T Plus was developed by a trucker for the trucking industry so I'm fairly sure that his original customers were truckers for many years before branching out to RVs. I have never heard any negative comments and have heard lots of positive!

I guess I am the odd one. I installed it on my 2016 Tiffin 36LA. Hardly noticed a difference in driving and felt it was a waste of time, effort and money. Got more bang for the buck doing the Cheap Handling Fix, inflating the tires to the proper PSI, front end alignment (which Tiffin pays for), and a rear track bar. I know it was "doing its job" because when lifting the front wheels off the ground they would turn straight. Just couldn't tell any different when driving.
