2019 27N suspension ideas?

I just bought a 2019 27N Adventurer and it's a little tippy. Been knocked into the other lane if I'm not paying attention so I figured a couple modifications.

Suggestions would be really appreciated.

I was thinking about the Roadmaster Super Steer 2" anti sway bars and...

Suggestions on where to find a place to install them would be appreciated also.

I had the same issue with my 2015 27N and the CHF resolved it completely, no cost or extra parts. Took me less than an hour to do both front and rear sway bars. I would definitely try that as a first step before you throw money at it.

I also did the CHF and it was night and day. Dealer did it for $70. The ride is rough though and I wonder if this contributes to it. But, not more drifting. Driving is much more comfortable and stable.

Where would I get a parts list for that?

I'm researching now after "CHF" search above.

Thanks!

A couple things with that video:

1. Assuming the coach is parked on a level spot, remove the bolts from both ends of the sway bar and it will pivot up and down freely. No jacking required.
2. Use some blue thread lock, and torque to 65 ft/lbs.
3. I had to loosen the top bolt on the links to get them to swing far enough back to line up. Put some thread lock on and torque to 65 ft/lbs
4. Good opportunity to hit the bracket bolts as well, loosen one at a time, apply thread lock and torque to 65 ft/lbs

I did 3 things to improve the drive ability of my 2015 Vista 27N (30' length).

- Cheap Handling Fix on both front and rear sway bars, labor only fix ( I did myself).
- Safe-T-Plus Steering Stabilizer, $ 500 part plus labor ( I installed myself).
- AirTabs, devices that mount at side wall rear wall boundary,
that improve aerodynamics of RV. $ 200 parts plus labor ( I installed myself ).

Your 27N or any other RV will never handle the road like a regular family car so we always end up with adjustments and improvements to meet the level that we can live with it. The CHF does make a difference..no cost involved which is always nice..The front sway bar should be scrapped and a new HD one installed.A bit pricey and minimal tools needed..then it comes to the rear end... An Additional sway bar is added , and this makes a big difference but you need a good tool kit Heavy duty..for this job.My left shoulder is still suffering after 6months!....I got mine from E Trailer and they came with good instructions for the install.

Before you go to the expens of the Roadmaster make sure your tire inflation is correct. I have had the Roadmaster system and it did help.

F53 Suspension Fixes

Ken,

I currently own a 2017 View V24 because I wanted something short and easy to drive. Previously owned a Newmar Bay Star 31' and a Canyon Star 40'.

I tried several suspension fixes. Here's what helped.
CHF-front & rear,
Front Roadmaster HD Sway bar,
Blue OX Tiger Trak - Track bar,
Bilstein steering damper,
Get a good front end alignment from a shop that specializes in big trucks.
Weigh your coach and set tire pressures - don't use factory numbers.

I also did Bilstein shocks, but I'm not sure they helped that much.

This should fix it.

Good Luck,

Jerry 17VV24

I have a 2016 27N Itasca and put Sumo Springs front and rear along with a Roadmaster steering stabilizer. It made a big difference.
