So enough with what it is, does it work? Well it had been a while since I owned a front engine gas
The installation is pretty straight forward and other than me getting confused on a picture in the instruction versus doing what the directions told me I had it installed it in about 2 hours. I wont go into details on the install because the video below is very detailed and will give you a good idea what is involved in the process. I installed Model TT2450 on a 2011 Itasca Cambria 31 ft which has 3 slides and for the test we tried to load it like it normally will be with 2/3 fresh water and an approximate weight of 13,800 lbs. The only other chassis mod is a set of air bags on the rear axle installed by the manufacturer. The test was a 580 mile round trip to have some leveler put on the RV. (a review coming soon) I immediately could feel a huge difference in handling the moment we got going. We began the trip with very light winds on 2 lane roads and it drove beautifully, easily maintaining the speed limit of 55 mph on even narrow 2 lane curvy roads. I was so tickled with the improvement you could not wipe the grin off my face. We hit the highway and that grin never left my face even when trucks passed to our left, I could feel a bit of a wind push but no tail wag and I felt in total control. But that was in light winds, and the following day we got the ultimate test. We had 20-30 mph cross winds with even higher gusts and high profile vehicle wind warnings. I started out maintaining the speed limit of 65 mph but was getting knocked around quite a bit by the wind, but the chassis still felt rock solid and responded well to the corrections I made to stay in my lane. As the traffic increased and the windy day wore on I backed it down to 60 mph and the RV became a dream to drive even with the high winds. It absolutely transformed this RV into something that was no longer scary to drive, but fun.
I highly recommend this chassis upgrade. I had a few options as far as who’s track bar to go with, I chose Blue Ox because of the thought they put into the design of the product and the extra strength they build into the unit. The exact manufacturing details are listed in the video.
