Shaky camper and uncomfortable BH couch

I have a 2013 31 BH and have a couple issues ever since we owned it, first the BH has a futon style couch and when it folds out the cushion is lifted on one side making it VERY uncomfortable to sleep on, any suggestions.

2nd, when walking in trailer it is very shaky even with stabilizer legs down, and suggestions to improve stability.

Thank You!

I installed the Steadyfast system. It is a marked improvement

I installed a 3rd set of stabilizers just to the aft of the main door. It helped keep the RV from “kneeling” like a bus when someone (like me, a 330 lb big boy) would step on the stairs. Also, I noticed it’s better to put the slides out before you put the stabilizers down. There are some good stabilizers on amazon for a good price. I bought very large ones and put them in the rear, and moved my original rears up to the middle of the rig.

Have you checked your suspension system? If itís original, the leaf springs may be wearing out. I noticed my trailer was wobbly every time someone took a step. I replaced with new HD springs and had 2 more leafs added. Itís very sturdy now. Kinda a pricey but the old springs were toast.

I'm surprised when you changed out your suspension you didn't add a rubber type equalizer. Dexter, Moryde, Lippert.

I saved $100-$200 or more on something i probably wouldn’t notice, since I don’t ride in trailer when its moving. I was more concerned with upgrading the leaf springs.

Jacks down then slides. X chocks also help. And as to adding springs beyond the original rating in the long run the bouncing around when you tow it will be hard on everything. These things are designed with springs to carry the weight but also ride good so as not to shake it self apart. That's why a lot of owners have added and your high end campers come with some kind of rubber equalizer.
