I have a 32 ft. Sunset Trail that is permanently parked in a park. I'm trying to decide if I should remove the tires and place the trailer on jack stands. Any suggestions?

I would put the tires (they will probably rot after many years though) under the rig and install a skirting to help keep the critters and weather out. I would NOT use jack stands but instead use cinder blocks with leveling shims on top. Jack stands might fall over in an earthquake.

I keep mine in the park with the wheels/tires on. Noticed that every unit is kept the same, even those that have been there for many years.







Don't forget to get liablity coverage extended from your homeowners to the seasonal location. Edited by: papa2

Thanks. I actually have a separate policy for my unit because I built a 12 x 24 covered deck which also covers my trailer. The upper deck connects to a 16 x 16 lower deck which then is connected to my boat dock.

If the "separate" policy includes liablity coverage (bodily injury & property damage) then great. If not, get it extended from your homeowners.

I assume you've checked with the park? Some States require you to keep tires on and register the camper every year as a camper. If it has no tires, it might be considered a permanent structure, like a home, and your tax liability or permission to remain might be jeapordized. Just thought this was worth mentioning.

x2 on checking with park rules. I would leave them on just in case your piers sink over time. Just cover them from the sun.
