Steering Stabilizer aSteering Stabilizer and Sway Bars Advice

I am considering the addition of a steering stabilizer and front/back sway bars to my 2020 Newmar 3014 Bay Star. Is it worth the money? Any advice would be appreciated.

A Roadmaster steering stabilizer improved the handling of our Bay Star. And, it's nice to know that it would help in the event of a front tire blowout. But, make sure you get an alignment first, and adjust your tire air pressure based upon your actual weights and the manufacturer's inflation chart for the tires you have.

The previous owner of my rig had Sumo springs installed, front and rear, so I haven't needed a heavier duty sway bar, but from what I've read, many have been very happy with the results.

We have the Safe-T-Plus and Sumo’s on the front and have found that to be adequate to address the issues we were having. We run with a full fresh water tank that adds weight to the bottom of the coach, and, so far, we have incurred nominal tail wag.
