Steering Stabilizer on a 2010 40QTH?

Morning All,

I'm in the very last stage of closing a deal on a 2010 Phaeton 40QTH. Has anybody seen the need to add a steering stabilizer to thier new rig? I've test driven 2 different units and for the short time I was on the roads (both hwy & local) I was impressed. I can't remember the test drive of the old Winnie but after the first days real driving a steering stabilizer was mandatory. I wound up putting a Safe T Steer on and it improved completely. I think the help ya'll give me on this inquiry here will be the deceiding factor. Thanks and good roads to all,

Ole'Joe - Young Joe here. I put a TruCenter on my Phaeton earlier this year. While I don't really 'need' it, it sure makes driving with a cross wind more comfortable and I feel safer in case I have a tire blow out. Also it's kind of nice that the steering wheel returns to center like a car does after turning.

Thanks Youngster,

I've been leaning that way and after talking to Safety T Plus this moring I will probably move the unit from the ol girl to the young un. I'll need only a cheap Tiffan specific kit. The major componet isthe same for either rig. Thanks for answering Lil'Joe. I hadn't thought about crosswinds but thats why we come here isn't it? Good roads to ya!

I don't know if the Safe-T-Plus will help much for crosswinds. The TruCenter re-centers the steering wheel on the fly.
(My dad used to call me Little Joe and that was long before Bonanza.)

Hey Joe,

Long before Bonanza? whew. Okay, I bought the safe t plus six years ago. I've never felt uncomfortable at all with the ol Winnie and its only a $60.00 mounting kit to move it to the new one so I figure it's worth the time and effort. The safe t plus does recenter the wheels but you can't make adjustments on the fly like the true center. The folks I talked to all consider it more a blow out safey item than a handling intem. Oh well for the price it worth the feel good. Thanks for helping me out,
