Those scissor jacks work ok for the up and down stability, but there's so much side to side bouncing that these extra stabilizers completely squash that extra side to side movement.
Our camper has the 4 standard jacks. On our 29SQB that was too much movement with a 3 and 5 year old. Bought jacks to put under the middle of the trailer. Helped some, but not enough. Bought the extended x-chocks, that made a considerable diff, but still not enough. Added those 2x4 stabilizers, and now even with 6-8 kids under the age of 8 running and jumping in our camper, there's no bounce or any movement.
Highly recommend trying these before spending any money on any other extra stabilizers.
