Rear Trac Bars

I was just on Ultra RV Products website looking at Rear Trac Bars for my 2020 F53, 26K chassis and I see that they carry 3 different brands, Tiger Trac, SuperSteer and Ultratrac, they are all similar in pricing($520 to $539). My question is, are there any differences in them and if so which one would you choose and/or why did you choose the one that you purchased? I plan on doing the installation myself. Thanks

I chose the SuperSteer mostly on price and I liked the blue powder coat. I looked at them all from pictures on the websites to do the comparison. Honestly, it looked to me like they all could have come from the same fab shop. I donít think you can go wrong with any of the 3.

IMO they are all the same except for the color. I feel that most of the design in mounting might be a way to avoid any patents and someones idea on what is best. I went with the Ultratrac as it was the cheapest and it appeared the mounting was a little easier. My same thoughts about the choices on swaybars.

Installed a SuperSteer rear trac bar based on my rv mechanic's recommendation.

Went Supersteer as I had heard their support was good and I also liked the blue powdercoat. I did call them during the install because of some parking brake cable interference and they were very responsive.

I have the same chassis!
Installed the Ultra-Trac rear track bar on mine.
Had also installed the Ultra-Trac track bar on a previous Newmar on a Workhorse chassis.
I think it is a personal preference.

All do the same thing. Anchor the rear axle laterally to the chassis. I had the Blue Ox unit on a previous coach. Found it used.

I installed the Tiger-Trac. Got it because the super steer and others were out of stock at the time. I'm happy with it.

I was once told by Roadmaster that they make the rear TB for supersteer.

I did the DIY TB, fun project and saved a few $$$. Look on here for posts on DIY track bar.

I just installed Supersteer last week. I found the lowest price by buying it directly from their website.

Thanks everyone, I spoke to a representative at Ultra RV and they are basically the same, I ordered the Tiger Trac as I had that on the previous coach, I also ordered the Koni shocks front and rear.

Thank you I watch a lot of YouTube videos on how to install it, it was pretty easy and straight forward.
