A Timbren serves a totally different purpose. It helps with weight support. An anti-roll bar acts in torsion to keep the body of the vehicle from leaning or rolling. You need to use the right equipment for the right purpose.

Yer probably correct. That's why my MH sways so much less from side to side when I make sharp turns or enter or leave parking lot driveways now. What's the difference if a bar or a chunk of rubber keeps it from leaning or rolling?

I installed Hellwig sway bars front and rear plus front and rear airbags. I live in the mountains with some major twisty roads. The MH rides nice and flat through the turns and straight with no seesawing going down the freeway. 95% improvement. As was said the stock swaybars are a joke. Sidenote, while parked the rig is more stable.

I have a fleetwood jamboree on the 3500 Chevy chassis and don't seem to have these issues. I'd be curious to hear from others regarding their experiences. Mine is only a 25.5 foot rig, however. No airbags. Stock suspension. The freshwater and generator on these are up front behind the driver. Even with a full tank of water it has been fine.

The sway is mainly the 30 footers.
