Recommended Anti-Sway Bars for Ford F53 Chassis on 2018 Thor Hurrican 29m Motorhome


We have a 2018 Thor Hurricane 29m. looking for front and rear sway bars. can I install them myself? Does the RV need to be lifted off the ground with a hoist? thanks

Your 2018 Thor Hurricane 29M is built on a Ford F53 Chassis and has a GVWR of 18,000 lbs. For this motorhome I recommend starting with the Roadmaster Rear Anti-Sway Bar for Motorhomes # RM-1139-146 because the rear sway bar has the most impact on the overall driving of the vehicle. You do not need to use a hoist to install the bar, but you will be removing a shock, so it will be much easier if you have a free moving axle, but it is not an absolute requirement. It is not a difficult installation, so you can do it yourself if you have the ability to lift the axle or compress the shocks.

Next, I recommend the Roadmaster Front Anti-Sway Bar for Motorhomes # RM-1139-140. This installation is even easier and doesn't require lifting the axle at all. I've attached a video to help.

Finally, I also recommend the Roadmaster Reflex Steering Stabilizer with Mounting Brackets for Class A Motor Homes # RM-RBK22-RSSA. This doesn't help with the body roll like the anti-sway bars, but focuses on keeping the steering centered to provide a better driving experience with less driver fatigue. This helps reduce the impact of crosswinds, rut tracking, road edging or a tire blowout. This can also be installed without a hoist and will take about an hour to install.

I recommend starting with the rear anti-sway, then adding the front anti-sway, and finally adding the steering stabilizer if you need to install them in a sequence.
