Congratulations on your new (to you) coach.

You need to weigh your coach to get the correct tire pressure. Over inflated tires can make it wander and give you a stiff ride. Also check the age of the tires, if they are over 7 years old you should consider replacing them even if they do still look good. I would also have a front end alignment done. If that doesn't help then you might want to add a steering stabilizer like the Safe T Plus from Blue Ox. The Safe T Plus helps stabilize the steering and also helps to control the coach in case of a blow out.

Tire pressures set by weight are a first must do.

How about the tires themselves? Condition? Age from the date code on the tire? RV tires age out before they wear out.

All steering and suspension components in good shape? Nothing worn or damaged?

Check all the standard items before throwing any aftermarket improvement items on it.
