Are you talking about sway going down the road, or the coach moving around when parked at a campsite?

When we had a Minnie Winnie, it was a "white knuckle" experience. I doubt you will be able to settle it down. The best route would be trac bars., front and rear. Don't forget it's on a van chassis, not meant for lots of weight.

One thing that may help is increasing tire pressure. Low tire pressue permits the sidewalls to move sideways more in turns and when wind gusts hit. The load/inflation charts show the minimum air pressure required for the load, not necessarily the optimum.

If it is a Sprinter based Citation, then this might help: Stabilizer bar and suspension mods
