2014 Thor ace 27.1 bad handling

Hi, we are the owners of a 2014 Thor ace 27.1. We had a 2006 Gulf Stream that we traded in. We made a maiden voyage last week and are still trying to get used to the new one. We're not really happy with the handling on the road so we're taking it in for a front end alignment and possibly have a steering stabilizer put on. It wanders all over the road and naturally after buying it....I find alot of people online who say theirs does the same thing. Any suggestions from anyone? Thanks

I have the same model ACE. Mine calls for 82 psi for all tires. I got it weighed fully loaded with the toad attached. I was about 1000 lb under for each the front and back axles. I dropped the psi to 78 or 80 psi and it improved the handling greatly. I still get pushed a little when a semi passes but not as bad as it was.
I contacted Goodyear about recommendions and all they gave me was a bunch of BS. I guess there is a lot of legalize involve with them in recommending a psi.
Hope you get it solved with out too much expense.
