Sway Bars

Has anyone installed sway bars on their class A motorhome? Do they work for the investment?

Hi Rufus,
Welcome to iRV2. I installed a rear sway bar on my Spartan Mountain Master chassis. The difference in handling was noticeable. Not as much as I would have liked, but an improvement. I would make the same purchase again.

The anti-roll bars will tend to stop the side to side roll on the chassis. I had better luck adding them to both ends.

With long rear overhangs on the typical gasser, I'd first install a rear track bar if you're trying to get rid of some of the steering corrections associated with cross winds and passing trucks. I installed a BlueOx TigerTrac on our 'A' and it made such a difference in handling, we've forgone other 'fixes' some do to their MHs. The rear track bar cuts down on rear body 'tail wag' and greatly stabilizes steering. Bob

BTW, we also installed a set of Koni FSD shocks that helped as well...YMMV.

You didn't say what chassis you have. A Ford F53, 2006 and up has a factory front trac Bar. We added one to the rear along with Koni shocks and a safe T Plus steer straight. I feel the safe T plus was the biggest help in driving comfort.
