Roadmaster vs Hellwig

Wanting to upgrade my front and rear stabilizers. Saw the huge difference in price between the Roadmaster and the Hellwig. Is it worth it? I do like the Roadmaster steering stabilizer. I've got a 2017 Coachmen Leprechaun 220QB. Thanks in advance for your input!

I put a Hellwig sway bar on the front of my class A. It's a well made product and I see no place where corners were cut in the manufacturing process.

I assume you are taking sway bars?

I don't know about your chassis (E350?) but on the F53 the only difference seems to be the downlink design. And the price.

I installed the Hellwig brand bar on the rear of my E450, 3 years ago.

Marked improvement in passing semi trucks. Went from staring in mirrors, watching for approaching semis, to a relaxed 1 hand driving.

Would have done the front, if it needed more control, but didn't need to.

First have an alignment done under $200, even new this is a first, look for this under the C section here for advise. Next make sure that you are running the proper air pressure for your tires. If you have air bags in the back set in 65# and experiment a bit from there with loaded MH. Now if it does not drive well add $$$. And remember you are driving a sail down the road and wind change or semi or box trucks will be felt but should not be more than a slight wheel adjustment.
