    "They call me the wanderer....... the wanderer......"



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Our Autotrail Miami is based on a Renault Master. It has a tendancy to wander when driving on straight roads and it gets to the point where my arms ache, trying to keep it in a straight line. This is not something which has just started, thinking about about it, it has always been the same but there have always been other concerns that took preference until now.
    Years ago, I had a Land Rover which did the same and it improved drastically after steering dampers were fitted.
    Before I go down that road, does anyone have suggestions that may help please.

    Total it and get another
    Not being nasty but I think it was your van I noticed with cheap crap tyres on it maybe trying some decent tyres will help.

    I haven't had that problem with my Renault Master PVC Rog, it drives like a dream, so I wonder if it is anything to do with the coachbuilding? (Maybe a weight imbalance).

    Might be worth getting the wheel alignment checked, how's the tyre wear?

    Brand new tyres fitted, so yes maybe worth an alignment check, thanks.

    Did wonder about that Rob, there's a heck of a rear overhang, maybe lifting the front wheels at speed.

    Any short vh with high sides & long overhang will do this.

    Cheap crap Charlie, just cheap crap.

    As I mentioned, this has always happened, even when we had Michilin Campers. I think a wheel alignment check is the way to go.
