This is just a FYI on what I did to my 1997 Tropical to fix the handling. The coach took a lot of effort to keep the steering from wandering going down the road and trucks passing would really push me to the right. This year I've replaced all 8 tires. No change. Had the front end aligned. No change. Changed all stabilizer bushings (front and rear) and new steering stabilizer. Some help but still bad. Replaced the Bilstein shocks off the front and put on 4 new Monroe shocks front and rear. WOW! I can now barely feel the trucks passing me and I can easily drive with one hand now (if I wanted to). The shocks weren't very old either.
