I know this has probably been beat to daeth on here. But anyone have any knowledge on these 2 steering systems. Which one may be preferred or can you post past links to and threads that may have a bunch of input? I just bought a 2015 Fleetwood Bounder 35K with the F53 chassis.

Thanks in advance for you help.

The Roadmaster really improved the handling of our Bay Star. I think the Roadmaster, being less expensive offers a "big bang for the buck". Also, make sure the front end is aligned and your tire pressures are based on axle/wheel weights and tire manufacturer's inflation table.

When I got my stablizer installed (Big improvement) I went with Blue Ox Tru-Center as it was the only one that offered a "Remote adjustment" (I can re-center it if I need to from the driver's seat More later)

Safe-T-Steer now offers the same as an option I understand.

Why would I want to re-center..
High crown road
Stable cross wind.


Home is where I park it.

I had the SAF-T-STEER at one point. Eventually is rusted up internally, causing it to bind up and seize, which caused it to rip the bracket out of the frame. I don't really need one on my setup, but if I ever did one again, it would be an eternal-spring design like the Roadmaster, or an all-hydraulic through-ram like Fox.

Thank you all for the info. I still haven't decided yet, but will get it sorted out soon.

Same here. I ended up with the Roadmaster now. Very pleased.
