Rebh 371 Mods

I won't be able to give feedback for a few weeks, but I've been a little busy doing some upgrades or what have you. But at any rate. I've changed tires, to sailun 14ply. Added Monroe shocks, built some stabilizers for the rear, built a new hitch, and opened up/enlarged the basement storage area. If you have any specfic questions on any of these mods, just ask. Once I pull it I can give feedback on shocks and tires. Will be leaving out March 1st. So no info on their performance till then.

I have the 381. Interested in the rear stabilizers. I have the hydraulic auto level and when the kids are in their room, being animals and not children.......... , the darn RV sways like we're in the middle of the ocean with rough seas.

No prob. I will take some pics and let you know how they work. Camping world sells a setup very similar to what I made, but I've got less the 20.00 in mine.

Another thing I've done to combat sway is cargo bars. You can get em at any truck stop for 40.00 or so a pair. Then cross em to form an X between the rear jacks and 1 across the front jacks. They have to be shortened but a regular hacksaw works well. If you don't have the spare tire you can use 2 in the front as well but otherwise the spare gets in the way. These braces are strong and work well, but the bounce is still present in the rear.
