Not sure if someone has done this already, but these are the brands of stabilizers I considered. I was wondering what everyone was using.

No replies? I'm bumping this because my trailer rocks every time the kids roll over.

Love the JT Stong Arms. Very heavy duty and they work well to minimize the movement of our 35 foot fifth wheel.

The J'S are what I'm thinking of ordering. Just making sure they are comparable.

I just use the rear stabilizers that came on the unit and X-Chocks. We get very little movement.

Well I ordered the JT strong arms. I got free shipping with Amazon and they were $215.

I had on x-chock and I usually chock the other wheel tight before unhitching.

Maybe I should get another x-chock. It seems like the side to side motion is where most of it comes from. Thought about another set of jacks by the axles.

This year we are just about full timing it. My wife got a job as a camp ground host so we are here until school starts up again.

We added another set of scissor stabilizers by the wheels - it definitely helped.

We just try to even up the tension between all 3 sets. fairly stable, but when kids are tossing in bed, we wiggle in our bed. Gotta love the "pendulum" effect!

If you don't have something like the JT strong arms or Steady Fast, you should try this upgrade. I was hesitant. But seeing the before and after I won't own another TT without this style of stabilizers.

Steady Fast and a set of BAL x-chocks keep our Longhorn solid.

We've used our stabilizers for almost 10 years and just love them. We're 38' long. Wouldn't be without them--ever. Even after adding Big Foot Leveling system (which did help some) we still needed out stabilizers to have no movement. Hugs, Di
