I know there are various add-ons to increase stability, but I also wonder if tweaking toe-in, or something like that, could help. I know it's a big box in the wind, but the road is full of 70 year old's driving these things, and if it was this stressful, I don't think they would be. Using one hand, and keeping my eyes more on the horizon help somewhat damping my own oversteering; and it isn't that bad to drive without the sidewind. Your thoughts?

I have 2005 Adventurer on the Workhorse chassis that I purchased in 2019. It handled so poorly, that after a long trip I was ready to get rid of it. I have owned a combination of trailers and motorhomes since 1980 and this one was almost impossible to keep on the road.
I went to Henderson's Line-Up in Grants Pass, OR. They do a driving assessment and then make recommendations. They came up with about $7K worth of recommendations, more than I wanted to spend. We settled on Koni Shocks all around and front and rear trac bars. I already had a Roadmaster Steering Stabilizer that came with the Motorhome.
I spent about $3K and got to take a trip to Oregon
The improvement is incredible. I can keep the MH in my own lane, even on a crowned road and I don't get blown off the road by Big Trucks.
This is a real post from a real person, not solicited by Henderson's. Trust me, there is hope for your coach.
