Are you talking about stabilizers that help in the event of a front tire blowout? If so, I think they are well worth the money. After reading several news articles over the summer of various serious RV accidents, all of which were caused by front blowouts, I think it's pretty cheap insurance, and could even save lives.

I have never experienced a front tire blow out on any vehicle but I purchased the Roadmaster RSSA stabilizer for my 2016 bounder just for the reviews and added stabilization on the steering. I think it was well worth the $350 for the added protection and I have been pleased with the added feel on grooved and patchy road surfaces with the steering response and feel. It makes driver fatigue greatly reduced and lets me relax my hands on the wheel.

I added a Safe-T-Plus to the 2003 Expedition. Once I finished tweaking the adjustment, it has made the drive more comfortable.

I added a Safe-T-Plus to my Itasca on a Workhorse chassis and it was one of the best mods I made. It help minimize "rut grab" where the front tires are pulled by changes in the pavement.

Installed the Roadmaster RSSA on our Coachmen Pursuit after the first trip to FL from NY and could not believe the difference the flowing year traveling the same route. Much less sawing at the wheel and less push when passed by large trucks. That and getting the tires dialed into the correct pressure has made a big difference.

I installed the SteerSafe stabilizers strictly for added control in case of a front tire blowout! Hope I never have to find out how effective they are!

Safe-T-Plus for me too. Great steering improvement and blow-out safety were the deciding factors. Money well-spent.

Sounds like the next purchase for our 2001 Allegro Bus. I took it on my first trip, with me doing all the driving this past weekend. Rain, wind and wow, yes white knuckle driving, pretty much the whole way. With the construction on I35 and the CTB just on the right side of the road it was pretty stressful.

But LOL, I was thinking that RV drivers are not the friendliest folks to other RVers, as no one lifted a hand to say hi as RV drivers passed each other, then the realization that it is because both hands are ALWAYS on the steering wheel holding tight!

I have installed the Steer Safe on all my MH's after installing on the first one. Made a big difference in handling. Wouldn't be without one now. Worth the money IMO...
