Exactly! And...esp. from the Teutonic engineers from MB? I "think" something got lost in the translation between the shipped-out chassis's(they are
built in Deutchsland I assume...or?) to FR in Indiana where the coaches are built on.
For such a tall ( almost 11' with A/C) unit (am not complaining as I like the stand-up room!) and almost 11,000 lbs before load...man, I would be wobbly too with that factory bar! They missed the mark on this one.
I park mine beside my home and to do so must jump a rounded curb, over sidewalk and power up a small incline on grass and tree roots into a fenced-in area. Coming up over that curb as easy as I can nonetheless produces some interesting oscillations needless to say. Scared my Grandaughter to death first time she rode up with me during this navigation. Backing down and into the street is tricky too with the same motorboat sensations. So, if I have to get them myself, then so be it....torsion bar AND SumoSprings! The cost of these items WILL be worked into the sell price come the day I upgrade?
