Trac Bar

Been looking for a way to improve driving stability by installing Trac Bar or so called Pan hard bar on rear. Looked on a couple of manufacturer sites that make them and they claim improves handling so coach has less tendency to drift. Anyone have any experience on installing one on their Class C rig?
I have had front end aligned from very reputable truck and R.V. alignment shop and also had Safe T Steer installed but still seems to drift more than I like. Been working with tire pressures and so far seems best with 75 lbs. front and 65 lbs. rear. Any input? Trying best to get Wife to feel more comfortable driving.
I have 26 years driving experience on both Fire Engines and Fire Trucks and realize about time behind the wheel, hence hard to convince Wife about the same.

Steve,
I installed the rear track bar on my class a. Best mod that I have done. No more getting pushed around by semis or winds

Reducing axle shift is a good thing! I've had Class C rigs that came with them... though B/C/A etc... doesn't change what a Trac Bar does. My Axis didn't have one and adding one tamed tail wag, big time, especially when rolling with a heavy toad.

Roadmaster sway bars, front & back are a great upgrade and well worth it. My wife and I installed both on our 2017 Axis. Not easy, but saved a lot of money and the results were huge!!!!!

Not familiar with a Trac Bar. Would you want one even with a sway bar upgrade?

Absolutely! Swaybars help to control side-to-side rocking and leaning of the coach. A trackbar helps to keep the rearend centered under the coach and reduces rear-steer by the rear axle.

Exactly on the rear steer, good description. Did you install a trac bar on your coach? I have only found "one" on the internet that is built for my 2017 Thor Freedom Elite 22FE. I am not able to do install myself, back issues and no proper tools to do it.

Not yet. Iíve gotten the stereo upgrades done and have an appointment to get the driver seat tweaked to my liking. Iíll start on the mechanicals, next spring.
