The death wobble and wandering steering can both be cured in all platforms that have adequate shock absorbers by adding a good steering dampener . The best appears to be the Blue Ox Tru Center. This product allows you to center your steering wheel and readjust "center". This allows compensation for the crown of the road. The theory is to cut down rapid steering gear input. The blown around by trucks and the white knuckle/tired driving well.... one is an act of physics and the other is just getting some miles on until you get comfortable

I also have a 25 DS and have not felt the need to add a stabilizer yet. I do believe that getting a vehicle that is built on the lower end of a platform is better than one that stretches the limit of that platform. The 25 Ds although showing an 16,000 lbs gvw which is 2000 less than the 28 and 30 shows the same axle rating both front and rear. That means the spring package is pretty much if not exactly the same. Also if you want to improve your handling load between the front and rear axles. Loading too much to the rear lightens the front due to leverage and that will cause a wandering feeling.

That would depend on how much leverage she exerts on you

My rule of thumb from years of pulling trailers: The longer the distance of the axle from the hitch, the more stable the tow. I,ve had trailers I had to extend the tongue to get it stable. Disclaimer: Only have experience with TAg trailers.

While the overhang ratio does offer some guidance, you will find that the weights and balances of a motorhome are more important then the overhang when it comes to ride quality. As a manufacture we try to make sure the the weight you will be adding to the coach will around the rear axel, because this axel offers more capacity then the front axel.
