How bad is the Roadtrek steering wandering/ sway issue 1990 -1999 vans? I'm doing research before  my family buys 190 or 170 Roadtrek Popular . I'm worried about steering wheel issue because I'm an inexperience driver.

Wandering implies two things:

1. Too much pressure in the front tires for the load, and/or
2. Too little front end positive caster.

If the reduced pressure is not effective enough then go for more caster.

If the caster spec is +3.5 +/- 1.0 the go for +4.5 degrees.

We owned a 2000 Roadtrek 190 Versatile on a Dodge chassis for five years.  We were experienced with driving vans but it was not any more difficult than any other we had driven.
