Improving my ride

Have 2018 Freelander 27qb on a Chevy4500 chassis.
I am wanting to improve the ride and handling.
Any suggestions and companies to purchase from would be greatly appreciated.

I just had the following installed in my Class A, Safe-T-Plus, Roadmaster Stabilizer, Sumo Springs front and rear, Sway Bar Front and Rear. This was based on recommendations of fellow RVer's and You Tube video's. Don't kill the messenger, but I had it installed by Camping World in Kissimmee, FL. I will PU this week and take for a test drive to see the difference in handling. Good Luck and safe travels.

I installed a Safe-T-Plus stabilizer and a Helwig front sway bar, on my F-450 chassis. I did the installation myself. Very easy to install both items. I have driven about 2K miles on the changes and I LOVE the performance. I can't understand why Detroit doesn't provide these as original equipment.

To the OP, sorry no one has answered yet specific to the Chevy 4500 chassis. If you do a forum search, you’ll find prior discussions that may be useful. Here are two such prior threads:

On our 2018 27QB, I installed SumoSprings front and rear. Easy installation and really helped with the sway, especially on the front.


They will make the ride a bit more stiff, but I was sorta going for that.

I installed SumoSprings on my 2013 MB 3500 Sprinter and after a 4000 mi trip I noticed items knocked loose. I feel the ride is too stiff and caused components to be knocked loose on the rig. Has anyone else experienced this and if yes is there anything else that we can use that is not as stiff?
