I will mount them permanently next time out (didn't have any hardware last time). Ours was so bad that the dog would jump off the loveseat and the motion would wake me up. Now if I could just get the black tank to vent better - guessing I'm going to have to drop the tank to fix that...

Did you mount them in the same direction as the others?, or turn them 90' to the others?

the scissor jacks are mounted at a right angle to the frame.

On a trailer you can minimize bounce using many of the recommended methods above, however for longer trailers the posts about using jacks near to the wheels really comes closest to completely removing bounce. With the suspension and the play in the tire sidewalls there is still some wiggle room for bounce when just using methods that focus primarily on/near the 4 corners. It is small, depending on the overall length of the trailer and the weights moving around, but for those sensitive to it, it's still there.
By jacking close to the wheels you pretty much take that out of the mix too.

Might be a bit late for a reply, but this is what we use and it takes care of nearly all the bounce and wiggle. We use the stabilizer jacks as well.

I got the same ones on sale for $30 a piece. I put one under the front frame and one under the rear bumper. They made a big difference.
