Have not had one on a newer rig, but they definitely helped on my older Bounders. P-30/32 chassis. Installed on both an 89 and a 94. It is a spring device that helps keep the wheels pointed straight ahead and also helps return to straight after cornering.

Like SacsTC I have had this on the 1970's and 80's coaches. For me they were worth the $s and worked as advertised. Can you be more specific about your concern when trucks pass you?

Depending on your coach chassis, suspension and the $'s you want to spend there may be other alternatives.

We just had one installed at CW last week and tried it out over the weekend. It stopped all the "push" when the big rigs came by and my wife says she enjoys driving it now.

How does the Steer Safe compare with the big hydraulic shock absorber types?

I drove our unit home from Houston and wobbled all over the road. Knew I couldn't enjoy driving under those circumstances. So, went to CW and s/w some techs. All said that steer safe was, for the money, the best. I had them installed. And found them to be about as good as advertised. I have the big rigs passing and feel very little push. I think they are worth the cost.

Thanks for the info. I'll look into getting one for my coach soon. I don't have wobbles per say but I do get pushed around a bit.

Thanks again.

I've had it on my 36' W20 for two years now and it make a huge difference in tracking down the road, I'm not constantly correcting. Stopped the push from 18 wheelers.

Two friends of mine had front end blow outs and had steer safe, it kept them going straight down the road and were able to safely pull off.

We had an old P-30 chassis on a Pace Arrow and it never drove well. Added the Steer Safe and it was like a different vehicle. It tracked well and did not have to fight it. Never had the chance to see if the thing worked on a blow out.

Has anyone who's used Steer Safe for any period of time had a problem with the springs rusting and then making a lot of noise? My dealer is pushing me toward Safe-T-Steer for that reason.

Both of the coaches I had this on (70's and 80's vintage) I had no problems at all. Kept both coaches 10+ years each.
