Exclamation

Since these are axially loaded members, drilling holes will weaken the 2 x 4. Web openings are fine for members in bending, where the resistance is mostly from the flanges. It just seems like a lot of work for very little gain.

I'm not sure without seeing under your trailer. Mine has the Glacier Package and is covered as well but the outer edges there is a channel frame going around the trailer and on the back end I use the brackets that are welded to the bumper.

Tried these out this weekend, only had the side ones and wow what a difference! Wife had a photo-shoot and left me at the camper for about 4 hours today so I packed them up and the rocking was insane after a weekend of none at all! Great idea and thank you!

I left this post opened on my laptop while camping this weekend and walked away for a while. My DW read it and has been complaining for months about the movement in the trailer especially at night when someone hoes to the bathroom. I never minded it and wasn't wiling to spend a couple of hundred bucks on stabilizers.

Needless to say, I will be making a set of these before we leave again in 2 weeks. Thanks to the OP for a great idea...

I do have a request, any chance you could take a pic of the ones by the stairs? I am trying to figure out where you placed them.

I can do that tomorrow. But I ended up putting one under the stairs on the left side because there is a u-channel rail and a bracket to push it up against. Then the other one is towards the front in the u-channel of the frame against another bracket that is just abou the same width of the trailer so there not to far apart.

Which trailer do you have? Because from what I have read so far the WH's seemed to have similar under belly frames and so that these particular locations work great.

Great improvement

I made mine for the X213 and had very good results. The bounce reduced greatly. Thanks so much for the post.
