Look on this site for the CHF , cheap handling fix.

It may take out some rocking and rolling for free.

Sounds like an F53 at that length. I have one that is 34' long. Sumo springs from the factory make it drive just find and predictably. I've driven in thunderstorms, 25+ mph wins, on the interstate with lots of big rigs, the sumo springs made it drive as well as a gigantic truck / body can drive...

Try CHF on the front and get an alignment. Worked for me.

I also highly recommend Sumosprings front and rear as well as Koni FSD shocks at all 4 corners. Best mods we ever did!

As some have stated try the CHEAP HANDLING FIX (CHF), and a front end alignment. Then if your still not happy with the ride look at the Sumo Springs.
I had the front end Aligned on our 17 Thor CHALLENGER 37 TB 38.6ft itmade a big difference in reducing the wandering in the steering.
I plan to do the CHF, and either a Roadmaster, or Saf T plus steering Stabiliser. If your going to be in the Atlanta area Safe-T-Plus will install, and test drive, adjust it free.

I have a 2017 Bounder and want to have the sumo springs installed. I'm having a difficult time finding an installer. We live in rural north central Pa. Is there a authorized dealers list or approved installers list? We are going to the service center in Decatur In. in Sept if there is someone in that area. Any help or ideas would be apricated.

Check etrailer.com for installation videos, if it's something you think you could handle yourself. On a our Challenger the front Sumos are pretty much just bolt on, after removing the stock Jounce Bumpers. Not sure about the Bounder, but nearly the same chassis.
Just be sure to specify make, model, year etc as mounting is different.

Things that fix handling on a Ford chassis:

1. Proper tire pressures
2. Rear sway bar
3. Rear track bar
4. Front steering stabilizer
5. Sumo springs
6. CHF
7. Liquid spring suspension upgrade

Only the last one at $14,000, really works. The cheapest is getting your coach weighed and tire pressures adjusted - $10. The rest are $200 - $800 + labor.

My list would also include a front end alignment with the toe-in set to the toe-in angle..

Tire pressure, CHF, and front end alignment.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.
