My boyfriend and I bought a 40 Ft 2001 Allegro Bus two years ago. This was our first RV and we noticed as we drove it, that it seemed to toss and sway with the windy conditions or when a Semi Truck passed by. I drove the RV as well, but I was extremely cautious since it seemed you needed to constantly correct the RV with the windy conditions when steering. I didn’t always enjoy driving, but it gave Nick a break when he needed one.
I saw in the RV Magazine I get weekly, an ad for “Air Tabs” and started doing some research. Everything about Airtabs sounded like something we could use for our older RV to keep it steadier. I brought the information up to Nick and we both looked over the benefits of Airtabs. We had a big trip to TN planned in the next few weeks and wanted to purchase these Airtabs to test them out on our long trip from WI to TN. Nick followed the instructions and placed the Airtabs along the back of our RV, they did look nice and blended in well with our RV.
We did notice a good improvement with driving the RV in windy conditions and when Semi Trucks passed by. In fact, the improvement was so good, that I wanted to do more driving then I usually do. I felt more comfortable and confident driving the RV. We felt that the Airtabs helped make it more stable on the road. Nick felt the same way too and we really enjoyed out trip and driving our Allegro Bus with the Airtabs!
Thank you for this product!
**As you look at the Airtabs in these pictures, they are not place crookedly on the RV, Nick is a perfectionist, and with a plumb line, he found where it was the straightest area to place the Airtabs, he didn’t follow the back contour of our RV because it wasn’t straight.
As we drive on trips, we now notice other vehicles with Airtabs too.
I feel Airtabs are important for those people who do drive older RV’s and notice the sway and the constant correcting with steering as wind gusts come up or semi’s pass by.
