Mini Winnie Steering Stabilizer



Not to start WWIII - but here we go again. I have a 2016 Minni Winnie Class C. (Ford E-350 chassis) I've been trying for over a month to get a replacement for a leaky front steering stabilizer. Ordered Bilstein 24-174534 from ShocksWarehouse a month ago, They are the worst ... can't talk to a human .... won't answer email or voice mail, etc.

Today I finally spoke to a human at Bilstein Shocks(its a secret how to reach one!) and she told me due to supplier difficulties they won't produce the Stabilizer until the end of December!

Called about 20 suppliers over last month and no-one has any Bilsteins. Also can't find a Koni unit. Called Roadmaster today. They are "out of stock" on their stabilizer but told me it "should be available by end of year!"

So the question for the forum is how do I deal with the very leaky stabilizer, and where might I find a suitable replacement (and what brand) before our 6,000 mile upcoming trip 11/7/21???

It's still drivable. Try to avoid bumps, manholes, pot holes. Just hold onto the steering wheel tighter going over obstructions.

Go to NAPA and pick up a Monroe stabilizer. That's what I put on my old class C.

"Just holding on to the steering" for 6000 miles, given that the existing stabilizer is leaking like a sieve, is not s safe option. I can't find the Monroe stabilizer referenced in another post either. But someone MUST have stock on something that will fit this coach!

Well, actually found a Monroe unit. With all respect, I'm a firm believer in 'you get what you pay for.' The Monroe unit is <$30.00 The Bilstein and KONI units about $130.00 (but not available)! Talked to Safe-T-Plus. Their recommended unit is $430.00, is available but doesn't look anything like the mounts on the Winnebago!

I'm lost! HAS ANYONE else used the <$30.00 Monroe stabilzer beside Twinboat? Is it actually any good? OR is there anyone with a 2015/2016 Minni Winnie who has used a Safe-T-Plus .... and if so, which model???

Thanks
