My 2007 Safari Passage has had handling problems since day one, the frame mfg, Workhorse stated the frame is 10% smaller than recomended by them for this coach and that was causing the problems and Safari installed rear stabalizers. It has inproved the handeling but now have had the water lines from the city water to shower brake 6 times in under 1000 miles and problems with the slide and line up of cabinet drawers in the rear of the coach. Speaking with engineers and custom car manufactures the frame is very important and my frame is more than likely "tweeking" and twisting. It is also very very unstable over 40 mpr when towing a 4 wheel down jeep. I was also told by another dealer that this model Passage was a problem and this was not an isolated problem with this model. Any input ??
