HELLWIG MEDIA PACKET
Meet Hellwig Products
A family-owned business for 74 years, Hellwig Products specializes in American Made, precision engineered products.
The latest project vehicle from Hellwig Products is the “Attainable Adventure” Ford Ranger, equipped with all the necessities to overland for up to two weeks. Gearing up for true adventure can add a lot of weight. Hellwig Load and Sway Control Products are key to a comfortable journey.
The build includes a bed-mounted kitchen setup, power station with solar panels, a rooftop tent, bike mount for ebikes and the Hellwig EZ-990 Helper Springs and Rear Sway Bar to support the Ranger’s extra weight with all that gear.
RVs can be a real challenge to drive and there are certain conditions under which even seasoned drivers begin to lose confidence. Nobody likes the sensation of swaying side to side at freeway speeds when you’re caught in a crosswind, nor do they like the wallowy feel that a loaded RV can have when attempting to navigate a twisty road.
Hellwig has designed several RV-specific products that will help combat some of your RVs wayward handling characteristics and get you feeling like the King of the Road once again!

We installed our signature steel helper springs and rear sway bar onto this Thor Tellaro Class B motorhome on a Ram ProMaster 3500 chassis and the owner was thrilled with the difference our products made.
Class B Motorhomes can benefit greatly from the addition of helper springs and upgraded sway bars. Nobody likes the sensation of swaying side to side at freeway speeds when you’re caught in a crosswind, nor do they like the wallowy feel that a loaded RV can have when attempting to navigate a twisty road.

Ever wondered how a sway bar works?
Sway bars, or more accurately anti-roll bars, are designed to resist a vehicle’s tendency to pitch from side to side during cornering, improving cornering ability and making for a more comfortable controlled ride. Sway bars are among the most cost effective and dramatic improvements that you can make to your vehicle regardless of whether it’s a truck, muscle car, tow rig, or RV. Sway bars are also typically easy to install, making them a great first upgrade for anyone who wants a little more control out of their ride.
Helper Springs are designed to make hauling heavy loads safer by maintaining a level ride height. Towing and hauling heavy loads can cause the rear end of your truck to sag which leads to decreased control, increased wear and tear on rear end suspension and braking components, light steering response and difficulty braking.
Helper Springs are a cost effective solution that improves the look and safety of your truck by maintaining a level ride. Helper Springs are also typically easy to install, making them a great first upgrade for anyone who wants a little more control out of their ride.
