no experience with that item. I did however replace my rear stabs with the BAL tripod style stabilizer and they work really well.

If I remember correctly, TimD had those on his trailer, and thought they were really good.

CB71 - No, but but my description may have been misleading. I call them tripod because they have three points of support - two on the rig and one on the ground. The BAL website calls them DELUXE TELESCOPIC STABILIZING JACKS. I noticed a big difference once installed. I also use tire stabilizers - the ones that go between the tires and tighten against each tire.

Another thing that helps stabilization is to re-tighten all the stabilizers 3-4 hours after campsite set up as the rig will settle as the tires cool down which loosens up the stabilizers.
