Best steering stabilizer!!!

I am pretty sure I know the answer but is the consensus that the Safe-T-Plus the best steering stabilizer on the market. I have a Thor 31E with the atypical "vague" steering issue.....

Thought I'd add this clink to your discussion.
http://www.safe-t-plus.com/media/stp...ssis_guide.pdf

It has the break down for all the chassis and what product is required.
I know this is off topic but as a newbie I am still looking into all this stuff.

Have a good one.
Dan

Personally I would look at the Blue Ox TruCenter with push button adjustment. That is what I am considering for when a steering stabilizer hits the top of my priority list. I like the idea of a push button correction for wind conditions or road crowns.

If a steering stabilizer like this is that beneficial, why doesn't Ford include one? Or offer it as an option?

The videos suggest it mostly preloads steering to stay in one place (straight ahead), which may work some of the time in ideal conditions, but what happens when the road slopes right to left or left to right? What about cross winds from the right versus left?

All tires have an inherent slip angle when subjected to side loads and this stabilizer doesn't appear to adjust for that.

It seems to me the ideal steering stabilizer is the one you don't need.

We are looking at geting the Safe-T-Plus, I called the company in Georgia (Austell Ga, 800-872-7233) and they confirmed if you purchased at the Factory then they install for free (need to set up an appointment). I figured who to install it correctly if not the people that make it.
We have family in Woodstock Ga just a few miles away from the Factory. Planning on a roadtrip once the Vegas gets back from some Safety Recall and Warranty work.

I have a 2016 ACE 30.2. Put on a safe t plus and absolutely love it. Made a world of difference.
You wont hear any mechanical or technical analysis from me, but from a practical standpoint, it works very well.
