Question 2016 Allegro 32SA

Just purchased a 32SA and find that steering is a little loose and it seems the shocks might need replacing. It really bounces a lot when hitting bumps in the road. Anyone have ideas for making this better or best shocks to purchase?

Three things first. Get a front end alignment. Buy and install a Safety Plus stabilizer. Get your coach weighed and adjust tire pressure accordingly to your specific tires and weight of front axle and rear axle. Replace shocks if you must with Koni but do the first three steps first. You may not need to replace shocks.

Question

1st, do what PAM said.

Then, how many miles on the odometer? It’s unlikely the shocks are shot unless you bought a really high-milage unit.

Have you driven an F53 based motorhome before (in other words, do you have any experience to compare it to)? On all but the best roads the ride is rough, period. Nothing like a car or light truck.

A Safe-T-Plus, heavier sway bar, and rear trac bar will improve the handling, but not the ride.

Sittin’ in ours in ours in Maine and loving it, despite the ride.

Regards,

Randy

This, and when you get an alignment, get them to bump the caster up to 5+ degrees. Makes it track much better.

Agree with the above recommendations. The stock shocks are garbage, Koni FSD front and rear greatly improve the ride. Better yet Koni Quad shocks, Rear track bar, and heavy-duty front sway bar are strongly suggested.
