I agree with Jamie alignment and tire pressure are vital for handling. I did add a Saf-T-Plus and feel like it made a big difference plus it gave me somewhat peace of mind on a front blow out.

Ditto on KNMIB's response. Alignment, tire pressure and then Safe-T-Plus made my 15 24.1 handle like a totally different unit. It is now a pleasure to drive.

I bought my windsport 31S in June 2015. It drove so horribly I wanted to get rid of it immediately, but after researching on the forums and the Internet,I found several things that can help considerably.
I have installed the safety plus system in the front , rear track bar, and sumo springs in the front. Also the five-star tuner. The driving experience is considerably different , it went from a white knuckle ride and my wife didn't even want to be in the RV. Now with these changes it is an absolute joy, I sit back and relax and drive with one hand.

Five-star tune, did help on mileage and smoothness in shifting?

Five star tuning

I get approximately 1 mile per gallon better, but the biggest change is the shifting pattern it is much more livable in the motors not screaming at 4000 RPMs anymore . It did improve the power and torque, it feels like the MH is lighter now . I am extremely happy I bought it. I'm heading out in two days for a trip to Texas from Southern California I will post my results when I get back.
