Recommendations for 2017 Mirada Select Motorhome on Ford F53 Chassis with Sway Issues

Question:

Hello I just purchased a new Coachman 2017 Mirada Select 37TB motorhome. I believe it is on a Ford F53 Superduty chassis, the GVWR is 22,000lbs. I would like to reduce the sway and constant battle with drift due to wind etc while driving. Can you please tell me the part numbers links please to the front and rear sway bar kits and reflex steering stabilizer kit that would fit my motorhome? In addition are there any upgraded performance brake kits that could also improve braking distance? Thank you for all your time and assistance.

The 2017 Coachman Mirada Select 37TB is built on the Ford F53 chassis. To reduce the sway, you are absolutely on the right track with the parts you are requesting. I recommend the following parts:

Roadmaster Rear Anti-Sway Bar for Motor Homes # RM-1139-149 along with the Extended U-Bolt Kit # RM-590050-00 if the factory bolts are not long enough to accommodate the factory nut, washer, and a new 1/2 inch plate. The extended u-bolts may not be needed if you have enough room on your factory u-bolts.

For the front, I recommend the Roadmaster Front Anti-Sway Bar for Motor Homes # RM-1139-140.

For steering assistance, I recommend the Roadmaster Reflex Steering Stabilizer with Mounting Brackets for Class A Motor Homes # RM-RBK22-RSSA. This will reduce road fatigue with a tempered steel spring that will push or pull back to neutral to help you maintain control of your motorhome in crosswinds, rut tracking, road edging, or even a tire blowout.

There is not an improved braking kit, however these components will help your vehicle from rolling and will support the load better which will assist with steering and braking performance.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Thank you for answering the questions about the parts for my 2017 Mirada select. I purchased and received your recommended parts and had them installed.

Are these the correct sumo spring item numbers for my 2017 Coachman Mirada Select Class A, GVWR 22000lbs, F53 Superduty Chasis? Rear: SSR-187-54-1 Front: SSF-173-40-2 Also what would be the item number for the appropriate track bar for my coach? Jason thank you for your time and assistance. Best Regards

I'm happy to help. The SumoSprings Maxim Custom Helper Springs - Rear Axle # SSR-187-54-1 are the correct fit for your chassis and GVWR. For the front, your choice of the SumoSprings Rebel Custom Helper Springs - 2 Piece - Front Axle # SSF-170-40-2 is also the correct fit for your vehicle. Adding these springs will give you more stability and will further reduce body roll. They are an easy bolt on installation and will help absorb bumps and shocks.

There is not an aftermarket track bar we carry for your motorhome. You will have the best system we can offer with the parts listed.
