2021 29 Coachmen Pursuit

Our new Coachmen pursuit has a handling problem. It drifts out of the lane when any vehicles pass us on the highway.

Take a look at this thread: https://www.forestriverforums.com/fo...ts-170065.html

Pay particular attention to and do some research on the “cheap handling fix” for the Ford F53 chassis referenced in the above thread.

We put a set of sumo springs on the front which made a huge difference and will be putting rear ones on in the future. Ours is a 31SB Pursuit and it handles pretty good, A lot of people recommend a front end alignment because they arent really aligned from factory after being built. Mine has a pull to the right , more than should be. I'm planning on an alignment in the future too. I haven't done the CHF but I may try that too.

Maybe more time in the drivers seat may help.

I agree with Behindbars.
I did go with the "cheap fix". I have done coast to coast twice with no mods. You may be overcorrecting in response to a "draft" problem that is inhrent to all class A's depending on weight and size. The f53 chassis is not the best handling but works reasonably well. Check your tire inflation. Makes a big difference. Increased rear stabalization using stabalizer bars or stiffer springs can help along with anti sway will relieve much of the driving fatigue. I have no real compaints after 24000 miles. My frustration is buffeting in high winds or gusty conditions in which case i slow down. I believe front steering stabilizer would help to some extent. For me, noise cancelling earbuds makes driving more enjoyeable while driving. There is no magic bullet.

This should be on the new chassis. Thew CHF may be different on it.
