Hi and welcome.
I removed your post from a thread that was not a good place to start your introduction into it's very own introductory thread.

To ask your question about improving drivability on your 2015 Vista simply go to the Class A Motorhome section (we call each section a forum... even though the whole collection of these is also called the "Forum."). Once in the Class A Motorhome forum click the "New Thread" button (black button upper left) and you'll be presented with a editor box to ask your question about improving your driving stability.

Be sure to make the title VERY specific so that folks know ahead of time what your thread is about. Starting with a title like "Help Please" is what I mean about not enough info. Instead something like, "Help with improving driving of 2015 Vista" would be the kind of title you should compose.

Also, there are dozen of existing threads on this subject here already. It's perfectly fine to ask the question anew, but you might want to do some searching and find some of the existing threads on the topic as well.

Here's a link to a post from the other day - it's concerning an Adventurer model, but it's the same chassis as your Vista, so all the info is appropriate. The link leads to a blog post a member wrote about taking his RV to a suspension specialist to have a lot of professional work done to improve the driving experience on his coach.

Most of us do this kind of thing piecemeal and there are many options and opinions about what's best. So, the more you read about this the better you'll be able to decide what works for you. If you can afford to throw a lot of money at the problem and drive your RV to Oregon then you can also have expects correct your problems all at one time.

One of the first things people do to improve driving stability on a Ford F53 chassis (that's what your RV has underpinning everything) is to add a Steering Stabilizer. After that there are many other options - spring helpers, new shock absorbers, rear trackbars, rear anti-roll bars, etc.

The simpliest fix is to figure out the proper air pressure in your tires. Most RVs run the maximum air pressure and this certainly doesn't help driving. But, to find the correct air pressure you must go through a number of specific important steps to get this right.

Also, let me encourage you to look at iRV2 Forums. That forum is owned by the same folks that own and it's got LOTS more generic info that would apply to your question. Here's a link to their Ford F53 forum which will have TONS of info for you to learn about: Ford Motorhome Chassis Forum - iRV2 Forums

Even a general Google search for "2015 Ford F53 Handling Problems) will turn up thousands of links and videos on this topic. It's a common topic.

Hope this helps.
