That's what I have and am quite happy with it for a lot less $$:

Many thank.

Did you also install the Roadmaster Anti-Sway bar to the rear axle?

No...but I know I would benefit from one... just a bit too pricey for the few times I'd appreciate it to make me open my Scottish wallet! I think it would make a real difference on some roads in in some cross winds but 90% of the time...I just don't need it....but I'm a bit shorter than your rig...so you may find a greater need. Good luck!

Since I have not driven the other systems I cannot comment on them, but I am certainly pleased with what I have.
Thank Andre,

Did you only install the Safe-T-Plus only or have the rear axle sway bar for your 37 foot RV to get the coach stable.

Actually, the 1st thing I installed was te Tiger-Trak. What a difference that made. I felt there was still something I could do to improve the driving comfort. This is when I installed the Safe-T-Trak. At that point I felt very comfortable in the driver seat. I would not own another one without these 2 pieces of equipment.

I just installed the safe t plus today on our new concord 300 DS. Wow. What a difference. Night and day. Test drove only 20-25 miles but it's a one handed driver no dought now. Trucks passing me before didn't blow me off the road but I knew they were there. Now it's no side movement at all. I'm impressed and that's hard to do with the after market junk out there

I used to routinely get a back muscle pain,which I now realize was because I was often holding wheel pressure. That has completely disappeared. I have used it in both high winds conditions and also just to add a little trim on crowned roads. It works great. I also used to stop after 200-300 miles due to fatigue. I have driven several 500 mile days quite comfortably on this trip. I'm just getting ready to drive back from Alaska and am glad I have this.

The trim makes small adjustments easily, just a tap of the button is usually enough. To make a large adjustment, such as very high wind,you may need to make the adjustment while going around a bend in order to get enough.

I have no regrets about this purchase and would gladly pay the difference in price for the trim function.
Hello Charlie,

For your 39 footer, beside the Blue Ox steering stabilizer, did you install any rear axle sway bar or any sumo-spring to stiffen the chassis?

We have the roadmaster installed but had it installed immediately after our purchase. I don't really have much road time to compare it to. Price was right and I don't feel like I'm getting pushed around while driving so I guess it's doing a decent job.....
