looking for some answers to a problem I have auto trail 7.2 mtr 4 berth at 50 mph and over its like a boat on the road swaying all over the place I can expect a wobble when a large vehicle passes but at times feels uncontrollable any ideas would be appreciated
Location: Normandy. Just up the D903 from the roundabout with the D15
My Motorhome: Hobby 750 now sold.

It could be all sorts of reasons Pete. I'm not sure about your particular chassis but I had this on an RV for ages and in the end changed the tyres and no more problem.
It might be loading, tyres, pressure, tracking, etc. etc.

trek, I also have a sprinter based van and agree totally with you ref the stability when driven on the road, but I'd describe the ride at slow speed over uneven ground to be a bit worse than you suggest.
The reason I asked ref the vehicle base was because a friend of mine has an older (than mine) Autotrail sprinter which exhibits the same behaviour as the OP, his would almost make you sea sick when moving about inside when stationary.
I keep telling him to renew the rear dampers but the suggestion falls on deaf ears as he tells me he's got used to it.
