Beautiful coach. Before you go very far, it would be nice to do the CHF. Helps greatly with sway and its free. Then a rear trac bar is needed as it helps greatly with the tail waggin the dog syndrome. And a 5 Star tune is a must on a Ford V10. Then throw away all four Bilstein shocks that come on your rig as they are total crap. Replace with Konies and you should be good to go. I made the mistake of running the junk Bilsteins for 700 miles. But I know better now. Good luck and enjoy.

I don't know if you looked under your chassis or not but the Frd F-53 Chassis I have has sway bars both front and rear plus in 2014 they upgraded the Bilstein shocks. That is not to say Konis are better because I had four of them on my 2004 Adventurer and they were super.
As for the 5 star tune I think the gas mileage you are getting is what you will get so deal with. Why spend all that money when it really isn't going to get you better fuel mileage. As for climbing hills if you use the gears you will climb hills easily.
Theses are just my thoughts and don't everyone jump all over me. Face it 7-7.5mpg is good for pulling a 24 or 26k load.

Congratulations !!!! very nice looking coach, I did look at the Adventure in 2013 and went with the Newmar. We are Very Happy also.

I have done the CHF in the front only and added 5 Star Tuning. Also changed to Koni's also, only on the front.

All three are well worth it! Each one Improves the ride of the coach. My son says it's the best driving and handling coach he's driven though it's the largest.

My wife asked me the other day if I installed the Koni's on the rear yet.
CC..... Happy Rving!!

Congratulations on the new rig ! Now the fun begins ! Start building memories . Do the CHF it's well worth it . I did it and you can tell the difference immediately .As far as the 5 star tune goes I agree with Tom- nc on that . You can do a lot traveling for the cost of it. Safe travels .
