Roadmaster reflex steering stabalizer

I am thinking of putting a Roadmaster reflex steering stabilizer on my 2013, 31 ft. Sunseeker (e450 cab). I am trying to cut down on the drift. Has anyone tried this and did it work?

All Amazon. 2017 Sunseeker 3010 on a 2016 E450. Installed based on research including input from Jayco class C owners who marveled at how the Jayco suspension mods felt compared to their previous class C's with stock suspension. So... Roadmaster RSSC Reflex steering stabilzer, $165: Blue Ox TT2450 Tiger Trac Ford E450 Trac Bar $525: Blue Ox TH7180 rear sway bar for E450 $325. Still to do; front sway bar and Hellwig helper springs on the back. All this bolts on in one day if you have the tools. A second pair of hands helps.

We have the roadmaster installed on our S.S.. After our western 3 week trip through the very windy mountain passes, I can say the roadmaster stabilizer makes life on the road much easier .

Chevy 4500 here.
Works great.
Might want to consider upgrading shocks also- helps with the jounce.
I did a motorhome alignment (added caster) Reflex stabilizer and Bilsteins.
SIGNIFICANT difference in wander and jounce.
2 finger driving when there is no wind now.

The steering stabilizer worked wonders on our 13, 352xl Georgetown. The hardware set costs extra from the stabilizer, but what a difference. Installed it on the creeper in front of the house. I was surprised how much it weighed (approx)25 lbs, very beefy. Tightens the steering a lot when going slow and all but eliminates the drift/sway at 55-60. The holes for the mounts are already in the frame and took me 45 min or so to install and slight adjust.

We drove our new Forester 3051S from Ohio back to Oregon in may. Had to fight the steering all the way, especially in strong winds in Montana and down the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. We got a Roadmaster RSSC stabilizer and had the alignment set to FR specs. Last month we took a trip down to the Southern Oregon coast (lots of curvy roads) and it handled like a dream. I would recommend it.
