Safe T Plus or Koni Shocks

Just got back from a 3,400 mile trip out West. Overall, our FR3 30DS Howard (Home On Wheels And Retirement Domain) did great! We thoroughly enjoyed the trip! My husband did not mind how the motorhome handled, but I'd like to see some improvement. I did have a little problem keeping it on the road and off the rumble strips! So, he did the CHF and we've both noticed an improvement. Great! Now, I'd still like to improve the drive-ability even more so I'm trying to decide between installing the Safe T Plus or installing Koni shocks. I guess we could do both . . . but do you think it's necessary? Thanks in advance for any advice!

Sounds like you are more concerned with vehicle wander ( hard to keep in straight line as you drive) if so, the Safe-T-plus would be the way to go, if you want to correct excessive bounce after going over a bump or the body rocking side to side, new shocks and a stiffer sway bar will correct.

I would have the alignment checked/adjusted. That stopped the active wandering I was experiencing. There is enough slack in the steering that I have to keep an eye on the road all the time, I assume that a stabilizer would help that.

I had the safe-t-plus installed and it drives more like a regular vehicle. Not having to make constant steering adjustments.
