Rollover Prevention

I have been advised to install a Safe-T-Plus system on my Allegro RED 33AA to help prevent a possible rollover should I experience a front tire rupture. The same system should also provide a steady ride while driving when experiencing cross winds, blow bys and general side motion. Any advice or other recommendations?

I haven't heard about the rollover protection but I have heard about it keeping you steady during a blowout.

I do see the benefit for emergency situations like tire blow outs, maybe having to drop a tire off the shoulder of the road, and rapid avoidance maneuvers. I feel they also help in heavy shifting cross winds too.

If the also help during the above on avoiding a rollover, great. I see them as a nice safety edge, and was one of the first safety related items we made to our previous F53 Chassis.

Best to all,
Smitty

This device and similar offerings from other vendors are good addition to help retaining stability in case of a tire blowout. Also may provide some improved handling in windy, truck passing, and similar scenarios. I have safety plus install on our PA.

Take a look at the SteerSafe stabilizers too. I installed them just for the added control after a blowout!

Your very BEST rollover protection device are a set of Tyron Bands for your front steer tires.

Expensive but last a lifetime.

What's more valuable, your life or your money?

There is a video of motorhome suffering a blowout running off the road and turning over. I suspect that sort of thing is why the advise. But - keeping your vehicle straight and true in an emergency situation also is aided by not immediately doing what is a typical reaction - hitting the brake hard.

After viewing the video I watched the driving videos several times to help understand what to do AND make that mental note each time I am driving.

Additionally, I installed a Roadmaster Steering Stabilizer to help me hold the wheels straight.

Hope this helps - it a very hazardous situation.

I have had Steer Safe on 3 Motor Homes and swear by them. If you go to the factory in Deming New Mexico. They will install it for free. I just got one put on my Present Motor Home while passing through Deming NM. Stop at the factory and had them install a Steer Safe and 4 Bilstein shocks. No labor charge for installing the Steer Safe if you buy it from them. very nice people Family owned business. took about 30 minutes.
