Stability

Hi, I just got a new Thor 29.3 and on the freeway it is like driving a jelly especially when a truck comes close! Any suggestions for greater handling stability would be much appreciated. Cheers.

Welcome to the forum!

Do a search for "suspension" or "handling" and you will find much discussion about that here. Before you spend anything on modifications, get that alignment that was recommended. Some here have added sway bars, steering stablilizers, springs and shocks.

We found that alignment and shocks made our Vegas drive great. Your results will vary...

The CHF (Cheap handling Fix, it is cheap, because it is for free) might also help!
