Default 1996 190V Roadtrek Sway bar?

I recently purchased a very low mileage Roadtrek, and find that at 65 MPH and above, there is a good deal of sway back and forth, as if buffeted by wind. I understand that the company did not install any (anti)sway bars at that time. Does anyone have a recommendation for a brand of anti sway bar that has made a difference in these older models?

Dodge right?

There's a good topic here:

AK49er put a Hellwig sway bar on his Coach House Class B. He said it cornered like a go cart - I'll probably always remember that! I'm not familiar enough with your year RT to know if there's anything in the way that would prevent the installation. The Chevys have the Onan generator in the way so it has to be moved a bit or customize the bar.

Dodges in those years used a narrower axle in the rear of the van as compared to the front. This way they only needed one axle for both single and dual rear wheels. However this brought in some handling issues with single rear axles that we get to deal with now
