It does make a huge difference.
I installed mine a couple months ago, but only have about 500 miles since the install. Big test next month when we leave NC for PA and then to SD. Mountains, Plains, rolling hills, etc. and probably a fair share of cross winds.
I'm guessing a comfortable trip with the Hellwig, though I admit we never took it on an extended trip before the installation.
Someone has proposed a second rear sway bar for the Solera.
Interesting read, and I'm waiting for someone else to bite the bullet first. At $675 I'm not sure I'd make that purchase without knowing more. Looks like a fairly complicated install, and I'm not sure drilling into the frame wouldn't affect the MB warranty.
Also, it it flattens out the ride too much, it may take too much of the road feel out of the ride. With a high center of gravity as in these rigs, I'd want to feel some sway on curves/off ramps, etc... Heaven forbid rolling it over because I didn't sense the sway at all - although my driving style would put me at low risk for that!!!
