Question sway bar?

I own a 2004 Allegro Bay 37db with W22 workhorse chassis. There are clunk and clinks coming from the passenger side. Lifted coach, wheels off the ground, tire shake, up down side to side. Front end tight, tie rod ball joints are tight. My question is, this vehicle has no sway bar of any kind in the front end. I thought all vehicles has them. Did this coach not deed them? Just wondering and seeking an answer on that and the thud/clunk sound and lower speeds, bumpy and not bumpy roads. A mystery to me. Any ides and help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.

Is there a 2" square tube attached to the leaf springs near front of coach? That's your sway bar. When one leaf spring tries to compress it applies torque to the tube and transfers to the other leaf spring. Different design but same affect as the more traditional sway bar your use to seeing. Should be 2.5" tube attached to rear springs.

I just fixed a noise on our coach that was rhythmic and pretty deep tone that turned out to be the stainless steel wheel cover. I removed it and the noise went away so I spaced the simulator out with a couple of 1" dia. washers. May not be your issue, but it fooled me...not that hard.

Good luck,

Confirmed that what you describe is the sway bar and it is a solid tube without shims. Thanks for your insight.
