Greetings fellow Vista travelers

Hello. I am new to this forum. I came across this site while researching the handling issues that seem common. I have a 2019 Vista. I see a lot of suggestions. Cheap handling fix. New shocks. Sway bars. Less tire pressure and so on. I will continue to research. In the meantime, happy travels.

RJSchwindt,
Welcome to the forum. It is a great source of info and help. We had a 2003 Winnebago Sunova and now have a 2021 Vista 35U. We've been very happy with both of them and have put lots of miles on them in our travels. The only handling fix that I did was to replace the rear sway bar bushings on the 2003 because they had disintegrated. Both have handled really well in my opinion but maybe I don't know any better!

Welcome. Our 2020 Vista was quite a difficult handler on our maiden voyage. I did just the CHF, and it made it so much better.

Don't over look the steering stabilizer. For many that's the very first "fix" to improve drivability.

I've done them just about all except the CHF (I'm not sold on that one) and they all help a little. But the truth is nothing can make a dump truck chassis drive like anything but a dump truck.

Greetings. Which floor plan Vista do you have?

Two different approaches here. I did the free and easy CHF first and found I didn't need to throw any money or parts at it after that. Still rides like a dump truck but at least it handles well now, and I don't get the extreme body sway anymore.
