Sway Bars in 34J Thor Hurricane

Has anyone installed Sway Bars on their Thor Hurricane 34J or similar model? Considering some Hellwig sway bars to steady the ride a bit. Wonder about the real value. Came out of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel the other day and thought I was going to own a boat instead of an RV. But seriously, I have always noticed some sway from trucks and wind, but it has been tolerable. And I can do without this; however, if it really improves the quality of the ride it might be worth the price and effort. Thoughts anyone? Dave Merritt, Chester, VA Click image for larger version

I have a Hurricane 31Z. I put road master sway bars on the front and rear. Big difference. I then added sumoís to the front. Thatís what it took for me to feel comfortable driving. Others on this forum will tell you thatís an over kill. Do one upgrade at a time until you get the driving experience you are looking for.

I believe most here will agree that the F53 benefits from improved sway control. I did the CHF with longer front links at a total cost of about $100 to achieve the same effect as heavier bars and have been happy with it.

I did the CHF, alignment, stabilizer, and a rear trac bar. A world of difference, with Semis passing and just going around corners faster.
I would do it again in the order I show here.
The CHF was the cheapest thing I had the steel and made plates to extend the mounting points, I welding the plates so my cost was the extra bolts and loctite.

I have a 2015 Hurricane 34f and I have installed a Roadmaster sway bar on the rear , chf on the front , Sumo springs on the front, and a Roadmaster steering stabilizer. Big difference.

Sumus all the way around and rear trackbar made an amazing difference.

I agree with the SumoSpring suggestion.
But the CHF is also an excellent choice!
