We purchased our 2014 3170DS in feb of this year. Have been fighting with our dealer since the day we brought it home. Drove terrible. Not new to this so I know they don't drive exactly like your car, but we traded in a 95 fleetwood flair (class A) that drove pretty darn close. Not only did it drive terrible but the steering wheel was of 15 or so degrees. Took it back to the dealer hour and a half away and dropped it off. They called and said it's all ready to pick up drives great! I said great what did you guys do? They said nothing it's perfect. I am tired of arguing with them and tired if driving something that is down right scary at times to drive. So I had it aligned to the specs posted here at my expense last week. I really cannot comment yet on the result because the shop is only 7 miles from my house, but I will say was noticeably better just in that short drive. So my comment on here I guess is I know this may be within fords tolerance, however fords tolerance is before a house is set on top of the chassis which would effect how the vehicle handles. So if Forest River is aware of specs that drastically improve the handling and I assume safety, why would they not just do it on every unit prior to leaving the factory? Maybe there is a reason for this but I am sure we as the consumer would be much happier knowing that when we spend this much money a brand new unit it drives like one.

Anyone know a good place to get an alignment in the SLC Utah area? My sunseeker does not drive bad, but not great E450
