Taking delivery of new Jayco 31ds greystone, in a few weeks. Will be pulling a jeep liberty sometimes. Interested in feedback on if and how you upgraded suspension (better swaybar, shocks, tru-steer etc) to improve stability and handling.
Before spending any money on upgrades, load it up, get 4 corner weights, each axle at minimum and set tire pressure according to tire manufactures recommendations, not necessarily the max tire pressure shown on the tire sidewall. On a 31' c-class (Ford?) the rear duals will probably be the max 80psi, the fronts may be less. On our 06 E450 Winnie, they reccommend 60-65psi, ours are run at 70 psi, 80 drastically reduces handling ability, causes wandering. Try it before you spend extra money.
Ours came with rear airbags as standard equipment, pressure makes a diffence, but I believe that Jayco uses Helwig helper springs.
Another area to watch for is the hitch, especially if towing 4down. How much play is at the receiver where the drawbar connects. Ours had about 1/32" play at the receiver and by the end of tow bar, it translated to about an 1 1/2" of side play for the front of the toad.
Enjoy your new Jayco

2011 jayco greyhawk 31fk Hellwig sway bars front and back. Billstein hd shocks front and rear. Safe t Plus steering stabilizer. Handles like a dream. More stable against high wind and semis. Also, body lean with turns is now almost nonexistent. Handles like a different rig than stock.....very satisfied with upgrades.
