Re: Steering by Alvinator
Post New Message We just purchased a 1999 Airstream 30' Land Yacht gas on a Chevy chassis. It has the Howard Power Center Steering. We just returned from an 1100 mile trip to the Outer banks and back that encompassed highways ranging from narrow two lane crowned affairs to Interstate highways in poor to excellent condition. We pulled a Jeep Wrangler toad.

I never drove a motorhome before; we pulled only trailers. All I can say is that I was able to drive the rig one handed with the Howard engaged; the more miles we piled on, the better I liked it. Wandering was virtually non existent. I did notice that as you approached a curve in the road, it was easier to go thru the curve pulling the steering wheel with the hand that matched the right or left direction of the curve rather than pushing the steering wheel with the opposite hand in relation to the direction of the curve. For example, if the road curved to the left, you used your left hand to steer through the curve.

I've read enough forums to realize that these rigs can wander; this baby doesn't with the Howard.

I like it.
