Having a large sale area MH and Trailers are affected by the winds. When I bought my Class A years ago I also noticed the rocking and rolling and wandering in winds and realized allot of it was driver induced, me reacting to the normal movements of the coach. Once I realized this and quit over reacting to the movements the driving became much more enjoyable and far less work. In my case add-ons would not have helped but keeping my elbows on the arm rest so my body movement didn't get transferred to the steering wheel made a world of difference. Just something to consider along with a cold gin and tonic at the camp ground or truck stop.

FR3 30DS

First we did the CHF and a steering stabilizer. Still had "white knuckle" driving days in the wind . . . Then, we added a rear anti-sway bar. This really helped!!! Just came back from the Dakotas and noticed a BIG difference on windy days. Would highly recommend a rear anti-sway bar, if you don't have one already. Good luck!

Despite what you read, we have all encountered the same issues with wind and the ride. Glad you have it handled.

Thanks for the help. The anti-sway bar, is that the same as the Henderson rear trac bar?
