Probably one of the last things I'd blame would be the Safe-T-Plus. While it may not be totally up to snuff it is only an additional part in the steering system.
Your unit is 22 years old. The springs have settled a bit, the rubber bushings in the spring hangers have deteriorated a bit and without a doubt the alignment has suffered somewhat due to this. You may also have a tiny bit of play in the suspension system or the steering system components such as draglink and tie rod ends.
You may be overloaded or your load might be distributed unevenly. I'm sure you packed heavily for a 9 month excursion. Maybe a trip across the scales would reveal some useful data.
I would schedule an appointment with a reputable alignment shop and have the unit gone over with a fine tooth comb before throwing parts at it which may not correct the handling problem.
You are driving a saltine cracker box with no aerodynamic qualities whatsoever. It won't handle like a Ferrari.
Has this MH handled better on previous drives? What kind of load are you used to driving with?
I understand I'm jumping around a bit but I'm just trying to get the thought processes started.
Get the basics out of the way then proceed.
