New to RV's, do all RV's handle terribly?

2009 Roadmaster RR10S under a 42 Monaco Camelot. Yes, like being on rails. Yes, handles and parks easily. Yes, cheaper than a hi-end new gasser. Zero wind issues.
Other examples

I am running a 2003 Winnebago. Handles and tracks great. I keep shocks, bushings and the rest of the suspension up to spec. Tires always properly inflated and load balanced. As for power I have no problem keeping up to speed except on the steepest grades. A pusher will have better torque and if properly maintained handle well. We went with gas as we are seldom in the mountains of the west. This side of the Mississippi it does well and costs less to maintain than a diesel. When we start doing the west more we will address the change to a pusher. As for handling it is all about the chassis, suspension, tires and maintenance be it gas or diesel. That said most diesels are on a heavier chassis due to their increased weight.

I purchased a 2015 Fleetwood Bounder 35K. I drove it for 5000K and hated the steering. It was difficult to keep on the road in Florida and the south. I took it to Allonardo Bros. Garage in Vineland NJ. and he drove it and said how did I ever keep this on the road? He performed his magic and this Ford F10 chassis drives like a dream. I did not add any after market stabilizers. If you have steering problem and are in the area, use him. It is worth 300 dollars.

Wow Voyager35L 5 million miles on a Ford. I would believe 5K, but not 5000K.
