I suspect you're going to hear even more opinions on this now that you've asked. We have used the Safe T Plus for three years now and it made a big difference in how our coach handled. We love it and the extra margin of safety it provides in the event of a blowout. Getting the trim kit with it is a must however so you can adjust it while driving. Trim kit wasn't available when I had mine installed and it's now on my wish list.

A lot of folks feel that any steering stablizer is a band aid to cover chasis problems which, if fixed, would make the stablizer unnecessary. I suppose that's probably true but I was frustrated after my dealer and two different Freightline Oasis shops couldn't do much to help the road wander.

Good luck...

Rick

safe-T-plus

spoke to safe-T-plus and if you install the trim made by another co. safe-T-plus warrenty is void. Did find through safe-T-plus a co. called Fleet Pride in KC (1.800.992.7869 Dave) that will sell the 41-230 for class A ford at $445.00 and the mounting braket for $45.00. Easy to install with no drilling, welding etc..

This is the one I'm talking about. SuperSteer Trim Unit for Freightliner Chassis

Was it your impression that installing this unit would void the Safe T Plus warranty?

I had the steering stabilizing unit installed on our 2010 mirada this past april and tomorrow (friday) I'm having a new rear trac-bar installed. The steering stabilizer helped tremendously against road wander and crosswinds, especially when an 18 wheeler comes screaming by at 80mph

Our unit is 37 feet nose to tail and 12'10" tall, so every little bit helps. I do not have the trim unit installed because I'm so impressed with the steering improvement that I didn't want to mess with it.

I'll report back after I get the coach back home next week on any improvements or disappointments.

Safe-t-plus

Just ordered one from Fleet Pack in KC, $445.00 plus $45.00 for the mounting braket. Will install myself along with the four Koni shocks I just ordered.
