blue ox 656 300x148 Blue Ox debuts new line of sway barsPENDER, Neb. — When an RVer buys a new or pre-owned motorhome they can be surprised by the uncomfortable, and sometimes dangerous, feeling they experience when driving around corners or curves.  It feels as if the motorhome is top heavy and the sensation gives them an instantaneous “heart in the throat” feeling.  It’s caused by what is described as body roll, Blue Ox noted today.

As a motorhome goes around corners the centrifugal forces push against the side of the rig. The chassis is planted on the ground and doesn’t have much room to move. The top of the RV is not secured horizontally and continues to move as the bottom stays in place. Under the most extreme conditions this force can cause the motorhome to roll over on its side.  And unless the RV owner purchased a luxury class motorhome, he or she is likely to experience some degree of body roll sooner or later, the release noted.

Blue Ox has designed a new product for its Chassis Performance Package that minimizes body roll.  Blue Ox’s Sway Bars are designed to eliminate the excessive side-to-side movement referred to as body roll.

Like all of its products, Blue Ox’s Sway Bars are designed, engineered and tested for reliability, safety and durability, the release noted.  They are heat treated with a tensile strength of up to 180,000 psi, have forged ends on all models, come with a lifetime warranty — and they are made in the United States.

Blue Ox President and CEO Ellen Kietzmann said, “With the addition of sway bars we now have a complete line of chassis performance products that will dramatically increase the ride comfort of most motorhomes.”

In addition to its new line of Sway Bars, Blue Ox’s Chassis Performance Package includes TruCenter and TigerTrak, all designed to virtually eliminate poor handling in any motorhome.

“We look at this product as taking a stock chassis and turning it in to a high performance chassis,” Kietzmann added. “Used all together, the Chassis Performance Package will make a motorhome drive more comfortably and decrease driver fatigue.  Even people that haven’t been comfortable driving a motorhome may feel much more comfortable once they have our Chassis Performance Package installed.”

“So take the stress out of driving a motorhome by contacting your local dealer or service center to have Blue Ox’s Chassis Performance Package installed,” said Kietzmann. “You’ll arrive at your destination more refreshed and be ready for the adventures ahead.”

About smokeycamping

Well let's see have lived in NY for my whole life, have always loved the outdoors (as long as it is warm out) have always hated the cold, and like a dummy have stayed in NY. But now with my second try my wife, we have been camping now for well over 25 yrs. We currently own a 2010 Cedar creek silverback 35TS and can not wait to get out on the highways and see this great country we all call home. Hope to see every National park before my medical issue becomes too bad to travel. I love my African gray parrot (she is my baby) and have two dogs at the time brother and sister mutts, but love them all the same. Have always been a big Nascar fan, love computers (have a number of certificates to build and work on them) am trying to learn photography, enjoy light hiking, being with good friends and folks. country music, pop music and just being outdoors. So I hope someday to meet some of the great people who like what I like and post out there in some great campground somewhere in the country, till then I will keep posting and I hope you keep liking.
