Steering Stability on chevy express WB type C 31'

We have a real steering issue ,as previously mentioned on forums,tractor trailer push, wind severe push, "white knuckle" experience" I have read about and somewhat experienced.

we added HD Bilsteins and they helped trailer bounce but still get bad pushing around and need to adjust steering on a regular basis.

wonder what next step should be. I am looking at some Roadmaster rear bar first and mybe their steering stabilizer if needed. We are just trying to do the most value added items, we are trying to contrl costs where possible. We just got out Type C, only used it twice so far and like it, except for a bit unstable on interstate, maybe it will get some better with experience.

what would you suggest next ,we have Bilsteins shocks.

thanks

First go weigh your MH. Then check your tire pressure to your weight chart and adjust your air pressure on your tires. I was have some minor problems with mine, thought I was ok on weight, and found that my tires were way overinflated. Changed the pressure to recommended amounts and 95% went away. Cheaper than spending tons of money on fixes. Took it on a 5700+ mile trip last summer to 13 Western States and the only problem I encountered was from excess wind in the mid-west. Normal. JMHO

Class C steering.

Rv. I owned a 31ft class c on the chev chassis and I also had the HD bilstein shocks installed, the air bags on rear and a STEER SAFE steering stabilizer installed. I pulled a car trailer so it was a heavy combination and I will tell you the pushing around by semi's and larger vehicles got no better. the push and then pull back towards the centerline was still a problem. I ended up purchasing a Super C on a class 6 truck chassis and the problem is non existent now. Sorry but the side area of the class c against the semi's you loose every time. Save I spent a lot of dollars trying to make it liveable and in the end realized it was not going to get much better. Hope this helps when trying to decide on the steering and other upgrades .
