Or you could spend almost double what you would end up spending and have LiquidSprings installed. Still do the weighing, alignment and proper tire pressures.

Well I just installed my track bar today and took it on a small drive and noticed a big difference of how the motorhome handles, it even cause the sway to be less, maybe my next project will be a rv steering stabilizer.

Good luck to you. I had a 2020 Newmar Baystar Sport on the 20.5K chassis. The Newmar part was fantastic. The Ford part was unbearable for me. I put sumo shocks on front and rear, stearing stabilizer, rear track bar, and performed the CHF on the front. This made a nice difference on the drivability (steering and keeping it on the road). However, the jarring and rattling on anything but nice smooth roads was something I could not live with. I finally gave up and traded for a diesel pusher.

I appreciate your post, as I have never had a diesel pusher. I do understand the "jarring and rattling" of the F53 (that is my only complaint with my MH). Is the diesel pusher that much smoother? The F53 jarring is frustrating at times when on a rough road, so I'm really asking if the DP with air suspension is a whole lot different?
Thanks,

Yes I have all that expect the steering stabilizer, I have the Koni shocks vs the Sumo shocks, I do have 4 air bags with controls in cab and my motorhome still has some jarring and rattling going on but not as bad, I did find some softer riding tires, Firestone FS561, when the roads are good its smooth and quiet.

I only drive my motorhome about 4000 miles a year so I cant see why I need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for a diesel motorhome and the expensive service it needs but if money is not a issue than I guess its OK, my 08 Bounder is paid for and I can do my own service and repairs and that's how I like it..
