lack of sway control will cause body roll in your vehicle - especially motor home chassis Excessive RV Sway? Hellwig Sway Bars to the Rescue!

Your RV/motorhome is more than just a mode of transportation. It’s your ticket to freedom, being able to set out on the open road whenever you want. However, driving it makes you very nervous. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Does the idea of driving your RV through a crosswind make you queasy?
  • Do you slow down to a crawl when taking an exit ramp?
  • Is your RV’s top heaviness cause for concern when cornering or when it rains?
  • Does the wind from passing tractor trailers leave you fighting for steering control?
  • Are driving at highway speeds nerve-wracking for you because your control deteriorates?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then Hellwig sway bars (also known as anti-sway bars or anti-roll bars) are just what you’ve been looking for. Rather than buying several unnecessary products to stabilize your RV, you will have one purchase to make, which could save you hundreds of dollars. With this one simple addition to your RV/motorhome, you can eliminate many of the common handling problems that you encounter when you hit the open road.

These easy-to-install alloy sway bars will pay for themselves from the moment they are added to your RV or motorhome. No more white-knuckled curves or gritting your teeth during crosswinds, hoping that your RV straightens out. Crossing bridges in windy conditions will no longer scare you, your passengers, or other drivers. Driving at highway speeds are no longer going to be a cause for concern. Sway bars take the fear out of everyday driving conditions.

How to Find the Perfect Sway Bar for Your Ford F53 Chassis

The Ford F53 chassis is one of the most popular motorhome chassis, used for Class A and Class C motorhomes. We regularly field customer questions about the best way to stabilize their motorhomes and RVs. Aside from questions about load support options such as suspension airbags, many customers have questions about how to choose the correct sway bar for their F53, as the differential determines the bar needed for each style, hence the question: "How do I determine if my F53 RV has the large or small differential?"

Large Axle - Welded Cover
It's actually very easy to tell which differential your F53 has and therefore, which sway bar is needed. Hellwig sway bar model number 7216 for the 99-17 Ford F53 chassis fits the large axle, which has a welded differential cover, as illustrated in the picture below.

Small Axle - Bolted Cover
Hellwig sway bar model number 7215 for the 99-17 Ford F53 chassis fits the small axle, which utilizes a bolted differential cover, as illustrated in the picture below.
