Seriously I think Diesel Pusher. However for a Gasser I think more weight in the Front will help as much as anything!

The Safe-T-Plus was the first thing we added to our new MH in 2006, mainly for the safety factor if we incurred a blow-out. It doesn't allow the wheels to jerk the steering wheel from your hands. It was also the best money spent since owning the MH. It made a dramatic difference in the handling when on interstates and meeting semis. It will not cure the top-heavy roll most gassers experience but it does help the steering control.

Ditto on the Safe-T-Plus.

After years of trouble free service on the Chevy chassis I would stick with Steer Safe. I just inspected it when under there this past weekend for exhaust pipe seals, front sway bar bushing replacement and greasing it end to end. How something with NO real wear points can improve life so much is awesome.

Recently installed Safe-T-Plus on my 38 ft DP, and recommend the product. It reduced steering wander, and most important is protection in case of a front tire blowout. It will not let the wheels be forced from straight ahead position by the blowout.
Good Luck

For my NATIONAL brand vintage, the factory installed a SAFE T PLUS. Even thought I have nothing to compare it to, I think it's probably the best one going and is priced accordingly.

When I bought my gasser, the front wheels caught in all the ruts from the semis ... and wandered all over the road. I'd arrive exhausted with white knuckles.

I installed a Steer-Safe stabilizer, plus added Bilsteins shocks all the way around. It's now a pleasure to drive.

I bought a Bilstein steering stabilizer and put it on. I will take the rig out next week and if it doesn't help, I will buy SafeTsteer!

I added the Tru Center (Blue Ox) on our 40' pusher and love it. The unit provides excellent stabilization, but also allows me to "recenter" the steering to account for cross winds. In a cross wind, it is wonderful to press a button, and have the coach roll straight down the road instead of holding the wheel against the wind. I was able to install it myself without problems and it has worked great for the past 6 months.

This is the one the past owner put on our MH. That was about 10 years ago.

I put a safe-T-plus on my P30 after I was blown across a lane in high winds, helped a lot!!

Not from Steer Safe hardward but we do have them in the house on some roads.

I don't know whether the one we got is best, but we just put on a Blue Ox True Center and have put on about 150 miles and it's been great.. I was on a very narrow country road and dropped the right front wheel off of the road side(met a school bus and our mirriors were going to hit) and it was like it didn't happen just pulled back on the road, no fighting the wheel or anything, just pull back on and keep going..
