What steering stabilizer to buy?

I am looking at both the Safe- T-Plus and a Roadmaster Reflex steering stabilizer for a 37' gas Itasca. Anyone have any experience with either of these? How well do they work?

I had a Safe-T-Plus on a Super-C Diesel and it performed well. You don't really appreciate them being there until you're in a situation where they're needed.

I have the roadmaster steering Stab and am very pleased with the price and performance. It is a very easy install as well. I think you will find most ppl that have installed them like them no matter the brand Blue ox, safe-T-Plus, or Roadmaster.

All have excellent reviews

Only the adjustable one which is quite a bit more expensive but allows Driver adjustment while driving is complicated to DIY

I bought a Safe-T plus steering stabilizer last summer and the customer service support was fantastic in helping me spec the right model, and recommending installation methods. Adjusting the unit so that you track straight is an iterative process, and requires patience to eliminate pulling. I would imagine all non remote adjustable stabilizers ( i.e. Blue Ox ) would be the same. If cost were no object, I would opt for one you could adjust from the cab. However after having this in place, I drove across Kansas on I-70 west to east, on a day the winds were gusting 45 MPH from the south. The rig handled well.

I bought the SteerSafe stabilizers and installed them myself. I didn't have any steering problems, but wanted them for added control in case of a front tire blowout.

I had a Safe-T-Plus on my 36' Itasca on a Workhorse chassis and it was one of the best additions I made to the coach. It helped with handling and road wandering quite a bit.

If you add the Trim Kit to the Safe T Plus you will have one you can adjust from the cab. Works great on our coach.

Do you have some more information on the Trim Kit? I can't locate anything on their web site about it. I had the STP on our Itasca and am interested in adding one to my Tiffin.

How about a video? Safe T Plus supports commercial truckers and they use the product as much or more than RV'rs.

Like I said, all of them work really well and have good reviews. My Roadmaster was about $350 with the mounting kit, but if you want to get the Blue Ox it will give you a dash mounted adjustment control for about a $1000
