So your just using the legs without a third crossmember bar like the "store bought ones" are designed. Not sure if that would work on our "soon to get" Eagle TT but will sure take a look since that would be easily stored anywhere as well.


Thanks for the pic!

Thanks for the pics, I will make a set the first of the week.
In my head they should just "pop out" when when tension is applied to the strap but obviously they don't. I appreciate the responses.

I could see the "pop out" logic you mentioned. But the actual force vector is upward. In fact, I have to go back and snug the factory screw down stabilizers up a turn or two after I install my redneck stabilizers because they lift the trailer up a bit.

Make sure you round the corners of the 2 x 4's on both ends as shown in the first pic! This allows them to find their sweet spot on the trailer and ground.

Let me know how it goes and what you think!

I would like to thank you Mr. Campbell. Last week I made a set of these and installed them on our 30 ft. Jayco when setting up camp. The parts came to about 20 bucks and am amazed on how well this works. For some time I wanted to buy the JT Armstrong stabalizers but now I don't have to

That's great Murphie! Glad you found them useful. After making and using mine, I won't camp without them.

Made and ready for next camping excursion.
The trailer frame at the rear are 'Z' steel members.
Cut an offset 'V' cut at the top of the wood brace matching steel structure.
Thanks for posting your invention.

My rear stabilizers on my 174bh come down like that in the rear instead of scissor jacks. I wonder if I could just use a ratchet strap between them as is...

Love it....must show husband. Our trailer has a bit more 'wiggle' that I would prefer. Thank you much for all of the info & pics!
