Steer safe recommendation

Cross post in the Fleetwood forum but thought I would post here as well. Long time lurkers here and this site has been a great source of knowledge and as such we became proud owners of a 2015 Discovery 40E this past weekend While signing the papers the dealer pushed us to get the Tyron system installed. We deferred as I don't buy anything the dealer tries to sell at closing. Reviews on the net have been mixed but the steer safe system seems to get good reviews and I was wondering from good folk here about your experience with steer safe. Thanks for all your past help even if you didn't know it

I have a steer safe on my 1997 Georgie Boy Pursuit. Works great for me. It is a family owned business in New Mexico. Very nice people to deal with. You can also buy it at Camping World. On a new Rig you should not need one unless you are afraid of a front wheel blow out. They do help. Some like them and some do not.

I had a Steer Safe on a 93 Adventurer with a Chevy chassis. I noticed a slight improvement in control, but was not impressed enough to put one on future coaches. Maybe the new ones do more. The next one I tried on a 96 Discovery was one out of Texas with a hydraulic pump. The brand escapes me now, but it is out of business anyway. It was the very best for all road and wind conditions. It was also $3000 installed back then. The only other one I have experience with is the Blue Ox Tru-Center system. I had it on two 40' coaches with Freightliner chassis. If I were to buy another MH with a solid front axle, I would not accept delivery unless it was already installed. That's how much I liked it. Great in cross winds and more stable on uneven road surfaces. Our current MH has IFS and is not needed. Keep in mind that the answers you get here might be based on someones limited experience with only the one they have and not a comparison with others. All of the steering aids will provide some results, but some a great deal more.

I installed one on my 2005 Winnebago Voyage with a W-20 workhorse chassis. It helped but still needed a trac bar on the rear suspension. That chassis had a bad case of the tail wagging the dog. It did help with uneven asphalt transitions and I think it will help with a front tire blow out

When we bought the MH in 2012 one of the first things I did was to install the SteerSafe stabilizers! I did it only for the control in case of a blowout. The coach was steady as a rock on the road without them! I just considered them good insurance, hoping to never need them!

I wrote a post last year about the improvement on my 2007 Allegro Open Road 35 TSA after I installed the Steer Safe. I achieved a noticeable improvement, which included decreased road steer, decreased rut tracking and increased straight ahead stability. Well worth the money spent plus it has a lifetime warranty. Installation, with a battery powered impact gun, was less than an hour.

I used to have a Steer Safe mechanism on one of my gas coaches. When I upgraded to a diesel pusher, I researched all of the manufacturers. I finally decided to go with Safe T Plus steering control and I like it much better than the Steer Safe product. More expensive but far more control.
