Several years ago the "Mythbusters" did a major examination of motion sickness. This was done with a platform that several of the crew sat on that could be moved to bring on motion sickness. It worked VERY well getting several of them extremely sick. The end result was that ginger works on almost everyone who suffers from it. It's pretty cheap and available almost everywhere. I'm not sure if ginger cookies work but, if so, it would be a tasty snack, too.
Here is a write-up of the episode: http://kwc.org/mythbusters/2005/11/episode_43_seasickness_cures_f.html
IRV2 Cheap Fix I made the change to my coach and if really tighten up the slow motion sway. So easy to do that I did it at a campground last Aug. 2000 miles later and no problems. Also my coach has the same chassis as your (but two years older).

All good replies, and I will talk to DH about the bushings. The chassis is a 2007 Ford F23, motor is Triton V10, Gas.
I am hopeful it is as rgatijnet1 says and I will get used to it over time. That would be ideal.
I never read while riding, and only look at a map if necessary to navigate. I look to the horizon, and try to keep my eye movements minimal. I have not driven yet, so interested if that would help. I would be focused on one thing. The reason I asked about the front stabilizers is that I have read discussions that it helped the body roll, just not sure if that would help the motion sickness.
Believe me, 99.9% of US Navy sailors do not have windows to look out while out to sea. They just do their jobs and in a matter of days their sea sickness is a thing of the past. My Son did aerial reconnaissance in the Navy and talking with him last night he just laughed. He was on a P-3 squadron and he said that 100% of the new people on the plane would get motion sickness. They had buckets around the plane just for such situations. As expected, the plane would change altitude, hit rough air, sharp turns, etc, and none of the working crew in the back had windows to look out of. Some also sat sideways or had rear facing seats during the flights. He said that the average acclimation time was around three missions. After that, the new crew members were able to focus exclusively on their jobs and they had no more problems with motion sickness.
Basically the cure is to stay focused on something, anything, that takes your mind off of the motion of the MH/ship/airplane, etc.
I am very susceptible to motion sickness. The older I get, the more sensitive I seem to be. While a passenger things like frequent speed changes, curvy roads, looking to the side at scenery bring it on, and so can travelling tired. I have yet to get sick while driving. Even with the car, if we are heading for big town traffic or curvy roads, I drive. Wristbands helpabout 75%, but I still feel queasy. Old fashioned dramamine works best for me. That dopey, sleepy feeling is far better than motion sickness
Our new (to us) 2008 Forest River Georgetown SE has quite a bit of roll. The passenger, me, gets sick every time we are on the road for more than an hour. My question is, will front stabilizers help with nausea? DH has never had motion sickness a day in his life, and so he is no help at all. Only on rare occasions did I ever have a hint of sickness in our Class C, but this Class A is a different kind of beast. Anyone else out there with this problem? The motion sickness pills I take (Scopace) apparently are not helping much. Any other suggestions?
I use "Meclizine" to control dizziness associated with motion sickness and dizziness conributed by an occassional slight vertigo problem that I have. The doctor had given me a prescription for it, but my pharmacist informed me that it was available over the counter as well.
