Ultra RV Products Announces release of F53 Ride Enhancement Kits

Mon Mar 13, 2017

Centralia, Washington - Ultra RV Products has announced the release of its exclusive F53 Ride Enhancement Kits available for Ford type A RVs. With Ford being the only game in town when it comes to gas RV chassis, it has eliminated the competition that usually breeds better performing product.

The latest generation of coaches on the Ford F53 chassis have the reputation of being a white-knuckle drive with an unpleasant ride. After completing extensive ride testing of various chassis upgrade products from different manufacturers, URVP has assembled the most effective and reliable ride and handling package available at the lowest price possible. The F53 Ride Enhancement Kit is designed to reduce steering effort, eliminate sway and wander, smooth out the ride and add safety to your RV as you travel the country.

The contents along with their benefits of the F53 Ride Enhancement Kit are as follows:

• Roadmaster Front and Rear Anti-Sway Bars – Adds stability and vehicle control. Eliminates the rock and roll entering uneven surfaces and keeps the RV planted to the ground navigating tight turns.

• UltraTrac Rear Trac Bar – Prevents the rear axle for shifting side to side which causes “tail-wagging the dog” effect. Reduces “push” by windy conditions and passing vehicles.

• Safe-T-Plus Steering Control Unit – Stabilizes the steering by applying equal force in both directions to assist in bringing the wheels back to center with very little driver input. Adds safety in the event of a tire-blowout or a severe side wind.

• Koni FSD Shock Absorbers – Provides superior handling characteristics without compromising ride comfort. The FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) is firm where you need it, such as through corners, but reduces jarring over expansion joints and rough roads. Specially valved to filter out vibrations before they enter the vehicle, resulting in a smooth ride over a variety of road surfaces.
