Welcome to the group! I have the Safe T Plus on a different chassis and it really helped. I wish it were remotely tunable.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Noticed you are kinda new on IRV2 and wanted to say hello!

We use the SteerSafe, but I bought them only for added control in case of front tire blowout. I don't know how they compare to the other system.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

I installed roadmaster reflex. Like above not sure how it compares with the other two, but I feel a difference with it. It centers me back quicker if I get blown over or catch road grooves.

3rd rv with steer safe. Works as advertised. No problems with passing trackter traikers or cross winds. Hands off goes straight ahead.
Highly recommended an easy to install.Click image for larger version

Safe T Plus

I'm a fan of Safe T Plus. Had ours installed by the factory (a great option) in a short time in Atlanta. The installation service was awesome there.

Saved us when we were run off the road once on a 2 lane road when an oncoming car veered over half way into our lane, leaving us nowhere to go but to head for the ditch. Managed to hold it on a wet, muddy, sloped, soft shoulder at 55 mph and avoided losing it . I have no doubt we'd have gone off totally and rolled had it not been for the Safe T Plus allowing me to hold it straight. I'm a confirmed believer!

P.S. I've been able to adjust mine easily on several occasions.

They seem to help gassers more than DPs... the nut behind the steering wheel of a DP is tighter. I’d say the Safe-T-+ is a cleaner installation but harder to get it centered. Getting the 2 axle bolts loose to install the S-T-+ mounting bracket is the hardest part of installing it.

Previous owner put one on my 08 Navigator and after 2K miles I disconnected it based on the 85K miles I put on the same chassis without one. Found it made driving tiring as unless conditions were perfect I had to hold pressure against it as it wanted the steering wheel straight ahead but the crosswind required some off center steering to go straight.

I made an adjustable mount that I can adjust on the fly and after 6K miles it really helps...would NOT buy one that is not adjustable from the driver’s seat. My DIY adjustable mount is here with a better summary: http://http://www.irv2.com/forums/f258/making-a-safe-t-plus-adjustable-451209.html

Not sure how something that helps you go straight saves you from going in the ditch and rolling over when what keeps you from that is not going straight... you need to steer back towards the road.

We had the Sad-T-Plus installed on ours and it is significantly better. I think the two you are discussing are very comparable.

Wet soft shoulder sloped towards a ditch, highway speeds. Front wheel into the soft muddy shoulder. Rapid swerve to the right to avoid an accident- yet was able to maintain control, not overcorrect, and not be pulled further to the right into the ditch. I was able to recover from the run off and continue on my way, without the front wheel being pulled further into the right hand ditch. Similar to being able to maintain control in a front right side blow out. It worked for me- and I'm mighty thankful for it. Oversteer is a real possibility when this occured and it definitely helped me hold the line to recover.

I've been run off roads in similar situations over 50 years of driving with large vehicles before and was not able to have that level of control - and in fact one time could not recover-- I was with the safe t plus

My experience with adjusting Safe T Plus has been that it is a very easy process. Have done so 3 times over the past 3 years. It has never taken more than 10 minutes and involved simply loosening two bolts and minor movement to make the adjustment. Did all three while on road trips and stopping at rest areas. There were no modifications needed at all
