Blue Ox Tigertrak Stabilizing Track Bar





Details:
If you drive a front engine gas motorhome, you’ve experienced it all too often — the rear end wagging as the body shifts from side to side. TigerTrak from Blue Ox greatly reduces this tail wag.
 

  • Superior stabilizing track bars. The springs of gas motorhomes often sway from side to side, such as when passing a large vehicle. This is especially true of late-model coaches with long parabolic springs and an extended rear overhang. Situated between the rear axle and the frame, TigerTrak allows unhindered up-and-down movement of the springs while virtually eliminating tail wag. So you’ll find your coach easier to drive and the ride more enjoyable for everyone.
     
  • Fits most motorhomes. We’ve created TigerTrak units for all Workhorse W Series and P Series chassis, plus Ford F-53, E-350 and E-450 models. There is also a TigerTrak built for all Chevy P Series gas chassis and Kodiac truck 4500 and 5500s on the road. So you’re sure to find one that fits your motorhome.
     
  • Superior construction, easy installation. TigerTrak is made from premium materials including high-strength alloy steel and polyurethane bushings for increased stability. The competition uses hot rolled steel, other lighter gauge materials and nuts that are welded on the ends of the tubes for mounting the eyelets. All less expensive and not as strong! Installation is easy, with only basic tools needed. No drilling is required, so your coach and chassis warranties remain intact.
     
  • Blue Ox — a name you can trust. TigerTrak is from Blue Ox. And it’s backed by our limited lifetime warranty. So you can purchase a unit with full confidence you’ll enjoy superior performance for the long haul.

Instructions & Manuals:
 
Positives: Safety, above all other benefits this thing makes a RV so much safer to drive. Negatives: There is no reason not to have a track bar on a front engine gas powered RV. Summary: It has been a while since I owned a front engine gas powered RV, but how poorly they handle came back to me all to quickly. I had run through 2 semi truck RV conversions which by far where the most road worthy vehicles I had ever driven in my life, but they lacked living space. So we moved on to a 40' diesel pusher which had great space and drove quite well, but was terrible on fuel mileage and wasn't ideal for day trips. So we decided to downsize to a Class C on the Ford E450 chassis and maybe get a little more use out of our RV and improve fuel mileage. We put about 600 miles on the RV without a track bar mainly on 2 lane back roads with a few hundred on the highway. I felt a safe speed on 2 lanes roads to be about 45-50 mph and 55-60 mph on the highway depending on cross wind speed and truck traffic. The most unsettling part of driving this RV was that tail wag and if there was a cross wind or truck passing us and the road was rutted it could easily move you into the other lane. So the only thing you can do is back the speed down, but then you have traffic about running over you or passing unsafely. And that was all without towing a car, I could not imagine how bad it would be while towing a car. I knew the first thing I would do to this RV as soon as the weather broke was add a Blue Ox track bar. The installation is pretty straight forward and other than me getting confused on a picture in the instruction versus do what the direction told me I had it installed it in about 2 hours. I wont go into details on the install because the video linked above is fantastic. This was installed on a 2011 Itasca Cambria 31 ft which has 3 slides and our for the test we tried to load it like it normally will be with 2/3 fresh water and an approx rig weight of 13,800 lbs. The only other chassis mod is a set of air bags on the rear axle installed by the manufacturer. So our test was a 580 mile round trip to have some leveler put on the rig (a review coming soon) and immediately I could feel a huge difference in handling. 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 it responded very well to the corrections I had to make 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 is fun to drive and I wouldn't hesitated to take it out no matter what the conditions maybe. 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. It is a big file and may take sometime to load but it is very thorough and gives you a big head start when you install your track bar.
