Sway bar to be or not to be?

Interested in adding a sway bar. Coachmen Prism class c. Does this come with a factory sway bar or am I starting from scratch? Thinking Roadmaster sway bar and Sumo springs. Thoughts??

My 2016 Coachmen Prism 24G came with one. Swapped the installed sway bar for Hellwig, added sumo springs front and rear, and swapped rear shocks with agile Fox 2.5. Ride improved substantially, night and day compared to before. Money was well spent. Tracks great, much less sway and rocking, stable, you still get some truck push but more predictable and easier to handle, improved cornering, and much less porposing when heavy breaking.

A quick peek underneath will tell you if there's a sway bar or not, but I would guess there is.

My van could use the Hellwig upgrade from the OEM unit, but I just put air suspension in the rear and I'll be taking the first long trip with it soon, so I'll have to let that marinate for a bit before spending more money on suspension upgrades.

In my case, there was a considerable size difference between the factory installed sway bar and the Hellwig, almost twice the diameter.

I installed air bags also in addition to new shocks and sway bar, play with the air pressure, sometimes the ride can get a bit bouncy with to much, it all depends on your weight layout etc, I would absolutely put air bags in before a sway bar, and I did! they work great for leveling also! good luck 09 viewJ
