Cheap Handling Fix - Any Regrets?

After driving through the Rockies for the past 3 weeks, going up and down various passes and wrestling through many tight curves without guardrails, my nerves are shot.

Has anyone, who has done the 'CHF' have any regrets or issues after the fix?

Does it really help with the sway and rocking of the back end? Also, I would appreciate any other recommendations for making the MH more drivable.

NO REGRETS!!!!!! NONE!!!! Did just the front sway bar and enjoyed a huge difference. Just do it BEFORE, you spend any money on any after market attachments. Also check tire pressures.

If you have not had an alignment done I would recommend it. I had mine done and it helped mine alot.

CHF + an ALIGNMENT have made this thing almost fun to drive.

If we ever buy another MH from Forest River BOTH will be part of the deal OR NO DEAL!!!

Regrets, yes. I wish I had done it sooner...

This single item, that didn't cost anything, has had the most significant improvement of anything else I've done. Personally, I believe the builders should automatically do this before the coach leaves the factory.

None whatsoever, did it after the first drive, well worth my time. Second best thing I've done is add 5 star tuner. Just finished a 3105 mile trip yesterday from upstate NY to AL and back through lots of rolling terrain, rig did much better than stock.

How hard is it to do the CHF! I understand what needs done but can it be done with the Coach on the ground in my driveway?

Also how hard are the bolts to get loose & what should they be torqued at. How long should it take to do?

We have a 2014 328 TS we bough as a leftover this past August.

Thanks everyone.
