Roadmaster Reflex - Worth it?

It looks like the cheapest of all the steering stabilizers. $270 shipped for the shock is pretty good. You pay for what you get. Is it worth it?

Talking

I have the RoadMaster stabilizer on my motorhome. It does make a differance in road wander and keeps the motorhome centered in the lane better than without. I did the CHF after adding the RM and that helped also. Trac Bar this weekend. Bob

Thanks for the reply Bob. So far, the biggest improvement was the CHF, correct tire pressure, Koni shocks, rear trac bar...I think in that order. Still haven't pulled the trigger on a steering stabilizer. I like to use the theory of wait and get the best vs. get the cheaper stuff quicker and regret it.

It seems all four available stabilizers do the same, and the difference is the amount of force they use. Except for the centering push button on the Blue Ox, of course.

If the greater the amount of force means greater stability then here is the pecking order:

- Steer Safe with up to 400 lbs.
- Safe T Plus with up to 280 lbs.
- Tru Center with up to 270 lbs.
- Roadmaster Reflex - No Data

Here is the pecking order as far as cost with the first one being the most expensive:

- Tru Center
- Safe T Plus
- Steer Safe
- Reflex

If I'm looking at this correctly, then Steer Safe is the best bang for your buck. Am I missing something?

ABSOLUTELY...single greatest improvement I have made. I have done CHF, new sway bar bushings, new shocks, new tires and the Roadmaster reflex. It by far made the biggest difference, hands down

I added a Roadmaster Reflex to mine and it has made a big difference. I don't feel the effects of passing trucks as much and handles better in cross winds.

I took a 3000 mile trip last month and I could really feel the difference.

I have been happy with all the other equipment I use from Roadmaster so that is why I went with the Reflex.
