National Dolphin Gas A 34LX (track bar rear)

I bought a rear trak bar from Henderson RV and will install it soon. I heard they make it drive better in the wind and truck traffic. The Ford F53 Chassis came with on on the front starting in year 2006.

I will let you know how it works out and take a couple pics along the way.

I think you will be quite pleased. I used the front track bar (Davis Tru-Trak) on my 2002 Dolphin LX (Workhorse chassis).

It took me about 3 hours to install the new track bar on the rear. I am sure glad I had a electric impact driver to remove the rear end bolts and install the new kit bolts. 1 1/8 track bar bolts are not easy by hand.

The hardest thing was getting the frame bracket on because it bumped up against the bump stop brackets. Once I figured that our everything went on pretty easy.

At 65mph in a 10mph side wind and trucks passing the coach feels solid and the tail does not really move like it did before. The motorhome holds the straight line much better. Overall I feel for the $500 a pretty solid upgrade that most people can put in on. One thing make sure you are on flat ground with the slides in. I put it on with the slides out and had to take the adjustment arm down and re-adjust after the slides were in.
