They have a Trim Kit available for the Safe-T-Plus and it works on the fly also.

Steering stabilizer a good idea for class A?

Indeed there is and I seriously looked into it, as I am a big fan of the Safe-T-Plus. One must keep in mind however that you are talking about two separate products, the stabilizer made by Safe-T-Plus and a separate trim kit made by SuperSteer. The two devices combined are more expensive than the stand alone TruCenter. Safe-T-Plus has stated that adding a trim kit to their unit will void their warranty. That was enough to dissuade me so I opted for the TruCenter. I had some surface rust issues with my original TruCenter but Blue Ox was on top of it and sent me a new replacement. I never had a single issue with the Safe-T-Plus that I had on my previous MH, it was an excellent product.

I have one and it works great. I had a Blue Ox TruCenter on my previous coach and I like the Safe T Plus a lot better. The only consideration for gas coach owners is that the trim kit is air driven, so a compressor and small tank is needed.

As previously mentioned I went with a steer safe, mostly for safety reasons. If you have handling matters you want to improve you need to pinpoint the source not chase the symptoms with money. Look at https://www.brazelsrv.com/ and then give them a call to discuss your coach specifics and your symptoms...they know this stuff and are very honest and helpful.

The two best add ons(IMHO) for the highest benefit per dollar spent for a gasser is the Koni FSD shocks and rear trac bar combo. It helped our '05 HR W-22's porpoising at bridge and concrete expansion joints, excessive steering corrections with passing trucks and the constant battling in crosswinds, that we could forgo all other typical steering add ons.

I totally agree. Those two changes made a world of difference in driving our coach. Smooth controlled ride plus no more tail wag from semis or cross winds on our Ford F-53 chassis.

I think I'm going to buy one of the Safe T Plus. How hard are they to put on. I wonder if SuperDave could do it.....

Stabilzers are good and useful. Help in many ways

you need track bars. as well in your case.

The biggest aid from a stablizer is when "Stuff" happens like a blown tire or some road "Features". But your problem is tracking, not steering.

I had one on my 2005 Winnebago Voyage and loved it. I would recommend it on any coach. Can't put one the coach I have now because no one makes the brackets for the Spartan Mountain Master chassis with the Tuthill/Reyco Granning Independent suspension. It's a center steer and there is no way to make it work.

I also second Doggy Daddy's rec on the Koni shocks and anti-sway bars.
Highly recommend Redlands truck & RV. They can do the alignment, a road test & make recommendations. Our 37f Winnebago handled like it was on ice in any kind of wind. They helped it immensely. Our home base is Temecula. We get all our work on the coach (servicing, upgrades, etc.) done there. Well worth your drive.

Same here.
