Steering on 2006 allegro 28DA

I just bought a 2006 Allegro 28DA and it wanders a little on the road. What I'm wondering is if I should invest in new shocks or a steering stabilizer? Thanks. Oh it's on a ford chassis.

I can relay my own experience. I'd gotten pretty used to driving my class C, then I traded up to a class A (2007 Allegra Open Ba 35 TSA). The driving characteristics were very different. This really hit home when I drove it off the lot. In addition to more steering input on turns there was also the wandering you are concerned with. I posted my concerns and got some good responses. Some troubling aspects were the effects of wind gusts, passing trucks and road ruts. I checked the suspension and saw there was no steering stabilizer. Wow, I thought. Well, after much research I decided to get the Safe Steer stabilizer, in part because of its lifetime warranty. Installation was simple and the pricing was on par with other products. The first time I drove the rig after installation was a 900 mile trip to Knotts Berry Farm in So Cal. then back along the coast. Boy, what a difference. I would say my earlier mentioned issues decrease by about 85%. Now the effect of external forces are gradual at best and there is no sudden darting of directions. I'm sure there are other products on the market that could do as good or better, but I haven't used them. I should mention my rig came with Bilstein shocks as well. Review my initial post under " Steering Stabilizer" to review the replies I received. Good luck.
