More stability on the Z1 toyhauler

Love my Z1 toyhauler bunkhouse but even with the front and back jacks down and the x locks on the tires it still felt wobbly when you disconnect from the hitch. I bought 2 more scissor jacks on Amazon for $70 and installed them just forward of the underbelly cover and presto, 6 point stability. The difference is amazing, it feels like it is glued to the ground. With the stock jacks being 1 foot from the rear and the forwards not much further from the front, this 38 foot trailer needs this as a stock option.

When the kids are walking around at night or on very windy nights I never feel a thing in the forward master. Best $70 I have spent on the trailer

Not a bad idea. Here in Colorado I have plenty of time to do this before our first trip out in the spring. At least I say that now, lol...

Look at JT strong arms on amazon. They make a huge difference. I even had x chocks on the old Z1, than added the JT strong arms. On the new Rezerve, I did not even bother buy the wider xchocks.

I wanted to mount them closer to center but the underbelly pan was in the way, nearer center would probably be even better.

If that does the trick like you say, $70 is a lot cheaper then a set of stabilizers.

I'm looking to do the same thing! I am wondering what the travel length and weight capacity of the stock jacks are? My labels are all worn off. I'm hoping some knows so I can get them ordered. Thanks in advance everyone.
