Stabilizer Bars on Super Class C's

I notice that Entegra puts a heavy duty stabilizer bar on the rear of their Accolades XL Super C coaches. Dynamax puts an "upgraded front sway bard with Clevis-style bushings" .....on the front.

The Entegra Accolade XLs use a Freightliner S2RV chassis. The Dynamax (non- Dynaquest) uses an M2 106 chassis for the coaches that have the stabilizer. Note: the M2 112 apparently does not have any type of sway bar stabilizer.

For those enlightened in the areas of chassis stability....is rear better than front or is the converse true? I do read from some of the users of the M2 106 chassis that they like the ride of their Dynamax chassis better than the M2 112 since the 112 does NOT use a stabilizer bar.

Thoughts?

Can’t speak for others, I have the Entegra Accolade on the S2rv chassis, surprised how poorly it handled, swaying in cross winds and semi trucks. I added the Safe T plus steering damper and sumo bump stop springs. Definitely worth the expense. There is still room for improvement.

I have heard that from a few Accolade owners on the S2rv chassis. It's one of the main reasons that I'm looking at the Dynamax DX3 as an alternative. We are still in the data gathering part of the evaluation.

Wheel base on Accolade = 279" and well base on the DX3=268".
Both have anti-sway bars. Entegra on rear (which is where I would think you want it) and DX3 on front.

Floorpans similar, but the dX3 has the Detroit DD8 7.7 L 375 HP new this year. Accolade has the 6.7L ISB Cummins
