Sway bar recommendations

I just purchased a Thor ACE 29.3 and have been rading alot about sway bars. The ones that I have looked at the most have been the Roadmaster 1139-140 and 1139-143. Any suggestions on whcih ones are the best value foor this motorhome?

Before you spend money do the chf modification front and rear on your coach! The chf makes a big difference in the handling and it's free!!! Takes about 1-1 1/2 hours to complete the mod and you will probably decide you can save the money and spend it on something else!

There are videos on YouTube that explain and show what the chf is.

Go to YouTube and search for Ford chf, there are numerous videos that show and explain what it is. You can also search Jerry's Hurricane mods on this forum, several people have done this mod and there are some good explanations on how it is done.

There are also videos on the rear trac bar.

It's nothing more than relocating linkage so your existing sway bar behaves like a thicker/stiffer bar.
