Hi, I am new to the Forum. We bought a 1975 FMC a year ago and have only drive n it a few times. The engine runs great and we have been working on the systems & upholstery mostly.

Driving over 35mph I start to feel the steering is loose allowing the vehicle to sway left or right and then I have to correct it and then it does it again the opposite direction over & over.
It gets really crazy at 50mph +.

Any suggestions what I need to look for and replace?

Every mechanic I approach with the FMC does not know what to do about the brakes or the Steering.

Thank you for your help.

Have you filled up your fresh water tank you need that weight to help counter the weight of the rear engine.
