I’m considering installing this product on my f53 ford chassis. I’m wondering how it works for you guys

Hated mine. Took them off several years ago and never have looked back. Steering is much better without! JMHO

I'm about to get one installed on our Bay Star. I think you have to understand what the stabilizer is designed to do and that it won't cure other problems that may require a heavier duty sway bar, new shocks, front end alignment, etc. My Bay Star already has Summo springs installed along with a rear track bar. After purchasing it last year, I replaced the tires with Toyo 154 tires and had the front end aligned. It handles fairly well on the road but I believe it will benefit from the Roadmaster stabilizer when it comes to semi and wind push along with handling when the tires have to move over to the edge of the road.

From what I've been able to research, the greater majority of owners have positive comments about the stabilizer. Once I have the stabilizer installed and have some road time with it, I plan to post a review here and elsewhere.

I installed one this past winter and this weekend was the first outing of significance and I can't say it added anything to the handling performance. Winds were pretty heavy on Friday and there wasn't much improvement. The rear track bar I installed three years back had a much greater effect on lane stability.

I just picked up a Monroe 555949 steering stabilizer for my '97 F53 chassis. Putting it on tomorrow. It was not much cost wise, about $50 from the "infamous (remember your Three Amigos lexicon...infamous means m'more than famous...harhar) so it arrived missing one blot set but they covered replacement cost right away.

Anyway I'll know tomorrow if it was worth the effort. I sense it will be just fine. Even with the old one in awful shape I've been really lucky, her steering is actually good.

Any other ford f53 chassis owners have this stabilizer? Anyone with a motorhome similar to mine?

I have a Safe-T-Plus on our 99 Winnebago Brave 35C. It helps in a strong steady cross wind. It does help with centering. The Brave also has front and rear air bags.

We also have a 2003 Winnebago Adventurer 38G without any additional suspension or steering add ons. I have no problem with the handling.

I think people that have never driven trucks tend to over steer.

I think tire pressure makes the most difference.
