Mark:

I put one on my '97 Adventurer with P-30 chassis and it improved the tracking and made the steering feel more secure. That said, the chassis had 90,000 miles...I had replaced the shocks and steering stabilizer. It probably needed new bell cranks but I traded it before getting those.

For the money it did what it was advertised to do. If I was going to get another similar device, I would get the Blue Ox Tru Center. It does a great job and allows you to adjust the center of steering on the fly.

I had one on my P-32 chassis and now on my W-20 chassis. I have also tried other brands of steering dampeners. I like the Steer Safe.

I have had a Steer Safe on my MH since right after purchase in 2004. I feel it is a worthwhile addition to the handling of my Winnie.

Its amazing that all these chassis manufacturers know what their product will be used for but still it takes all these hundreds of dollars by the customer to make it do what it was supposed to do. When we pay over $60-70M (and up) for these coaches, you'd think another few hundred by the manufacturer wouldn't be that big a deal, especially since its cheaper for them to do it the first time than us to remove their problem and install the correct one.

I think it's all controlled by the people in marketing. Putting a steer safe on the rvs at the factory would mean either less profit for the manufacturer or more cost for the consumer. Neither option is a good one from a sales perspective. If all the manufacturers put them on their rvs it would work as a level playing field. Notice that all rvs have basically the same things on them, just the quality and size of those things change as you go up in price- such as better furniture, better engines, bigger and better contruction and materials. If there was enough demand for the steer safe type options they would be putting them on, but for a lot of people the rv is good enough without it so it's not standard equipment like a bed, bath, tv, and so on is! We buy rvs without steer safes, but we wouldn't buy them without beds and baths and etc.
