Steering stabilizer

I'm in the process of purchasing a 2001 CC Intrigue. My last two coaches were gas and I installed Safe-t Plus stabilizers on both of them. I don't find where Safe-T Plus, or Blue Ox list a stabilizer for the CC with IFS. Does anybody have a stabilizer installed on their coach and if so where can it be purchased. Any input on the need for one and/or where to purchase one is appreciated.

I think you will find a steering stabilizer isn't needed on a IFS coach.

hawg6 - welcome to Country Coach. I have a 2002 Affinity 42' with approx the same chassis as the coach your are about to buy. You did not post the length or model so I cannot tell you how close to my coach you are going to get. Unless you are going under 36' I would guess you will not need a steering stabilizer. I have driven through 50 mph desert winds without a problem. My coach is pretty much impervious to truck wash. If you pay really close attention you can feel it move a little when a truck goes by.

The coach is a 2001 CC Intrigue 40 foot, double slide No tag axel. Also understand there have been an issue with slides leaking water, not an isssue if has not already leaked?

Hello again hawg6. I looked up your chassis and it is substantially different than our coach, but you have an outstanding 58% chassis length to house size and so I would definitely wait until you have driven your coach a few months before adding anything to it. I do not think you will need a steering stabilizer. You might foul up one of the best steering coaches on the used market.

We have not had any leaks on our slide. We did have a rubber seal come out and that was fairly expensive to fix. We have had a small leak in the mid passenger side. We had that patched. They are great coaches. If possible get work done up in Oregon where the coaches were built. Lots of experts up there and reasonable prices.

Doubt that you'll need one.

Our last rig was an 06 40' Allure and we had a front passenger tire blow out @ highway speeds on a 2 lane road. DW was driving, heard a noise and when I looked out the mirror could see the rubber flying past. She was able to smoothly pull us off to the shoulder (dirt) without any problems.

Tire was destroyed (only some steel belts remaining), tore out fuel fill line and did some other damage but handling was not a problem.
