Tires or stabilization?, 2016 Winnebago View

I just put a set of XPS Michelin tires on my rig and find they give a wishy-washy ride up front...especially with crosswinds. The original Continentals were a good ride, but can't seem to find any now?

Is there a better Michelin tire or should I try a stabilizer bar on the front end?

Suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

First thing to do is weigh the coach and set the tire pressures according to a weight chart for the tires. If they are too highly inflated, that can cause the wishy-washy wandering you describe.

I think the less rigid sidewalls and all season rubber compound are why the XPS tires feel soft.
I plan on looking at the Michelin Agilis CrossClimates, when the time comes.
I had the AT2 models on my Roadtrek and they were great in sand/snow/mud and ran perfectly to their warranted mileage, before they failed. Tread separation, but there was enough tread depth left to prorate 50% off a new set of LTX MS2s. Not as rugged as the AT2s but they didn't have the preferred tires in my size, and we were on vacation. I would put AT2s on the Navion, but they don't make them in LT215/85.
