Our Winnebago View (2013), Model 24J: (1) sways way too much

Customer Question

Our Winnebago View (2013), Model 24J: (1) sways way too much left and right when traveling over dips and high points (e.g., a driveway or sunken highway pavement, and (2) the coach seems to bang hard against the frame when traveling over a hole or sunken area.
Questions: What options are available to resolve these two significant issues? Stronger shocks, sway bars, air bag suspension kits, cushions between the spring coils? Other?
As a side note, some RV service technicians have stated the Mercedes-Sprinter version of the Winnebago View (sold as a 2013 model) contains Bilstein shocks even though the shocks are marked with the Monroe name on them.

Yes.............sorry for the delay in someone getting to your question. I have never heard of any Bilstein shocks that didn't say that on them. And those are great shocks as are Konis. Either of those would offer a better ride than standard shocks. I am attaching a link to some other improvements you might consider. I have several others I can offer as well. Hope this gives you some ideas to check out. Read the blogs on them as other owners are a good source of what works and what doesen't. All follow ups are included if you need more on this later. http://www.glide-rite.com/Air_suspension_system_p/4-bag%20full%20air%20suspension.htm

I should have mentioned that the Koni shocks are adjustable and one reason for them being more $$$, but most say they are worth it!

Did you have a chance to look into some of the various upgrades I mentioned?
