I’ve read on Facebook groups about adding suspension upgrades to improve handling. Would appreciate any comments and product info from members.
Storage tips and anything to keep gear quiet n the road (not used to being in same cabin as all the gear-Haha).

My suggestion on the suspension is try it first, and if you can't live with it as is try only one modification at a time. Personally on my Sprinter chassis RV I was expecting the worst from reading the forums but as it turned out I haven't done anything, and have not had issues. The bow wave push is not nearly as bad as I thought it would be nor have I had issues with wind although have not driven in real high winds and I stay under 65 MPH. The one complaint that most have is the violent side to side rocking when pulling out of a driveway or driving over the fuel station fill points which are elevated. This has not been an issue for us as I drive over them very slowly. Maybe it's because I drove a work van very similar to a class C for 15 years with stacked bins of small parts in the back and I got used to it, if I didn't drive slow over humps and entering/exiting driveways I had a mess to pick up in the back. I think a lot of people are used to driving passenger vehicles and they want to make their MH, which is really a 1 ton truck, drive like a car. Just remember when it comes to suspension mods everything you do is a trade off, you gain something but you also give something up. for example a stiffer stabilizer bar will lessen the "rocking" but at the same time will worsen your experience on washboard roads. If I ever decide to change anything my first go to will be rear shocks by Fox.
