For an anti-sway bar you just need a alrger size (stiffer) bar thn what you now have. Brand isn't important.

As for stabilizer, you would probably be better off adding a panhard rod (e.g. the Davis Tru-Trak or Henderson Supersteer) than either the Steer Safe or Safe-T-Plus steering stabilizer. It's more likely to improve your steering. See my article in the FILES-Chassis section titled Motorhome Handling Problems and Solutions. I think you will find it helpful.

Search for CHF and you will find lots of helpful information on how to improve the handling (anti-sway) of your 2006 F53...get this...FOR FREE!!

I have a Safe-T-steer and love how it improved the handling of my coach so I would recommend it.

Also agree with Gary that a track bar is a great idea. He's steered you (pun intended) in a good direction.

Best of luck with your search!
