You Need X-Chocks

I always get up early to fix coffee and walk Terra (our black lab) while my wife sleeps in. She would complain the I'd wake her because the trailer moved from me walking around. Well... I solved that problem with the X-Chock Wheel Stabilizers. Happy wife; happy life.

You can get them at Amazon:

I bought those a couple of years back and did not notice a difference. Maybe because I have 2 huge opposing slides out back they can't really help much. I haven't used them in a while. Maybe I will try them again next trip out.

Years ago I purchased a set of Roto-chocks. They are great and last forever.

Unfortunately they are out of business now.

Yep, X-chocks help quite a bit. Not side to side but front to back motion.
And they give a little added peace of mind while setting up on an uneven campsite.

Ours help, but I wouldn't say it's quite so "dramatic". The "dramatic" help comes from using the regular stabs, the X-chocks AND another set of jacks under the frame right in front of the front axle. We get virtually no movement when set up like that. I'm using "stack jacks" right now, but they're a pain to deploy and adjust. Eventually I think I want to put scissor jacks there to make life easier. I'm torn between scissor jacks and BAL Lock-Arms...

You still need to use standard wheel chocks, I use 2 on each side, and the corner stabilizers. Nothing is going to totally eliminate movement, after all the majority of the weight is on rubber.

I don't really notice a big improvement. But our most noticeable movement is because the kids bunks are on one end and our bed at the opposite end. I would like some slide jacks for under our bed.

Yep. When I really want to get the bounce out I'll use two bottle jacks between the wheels. With chocks, x-chocks, and the bottle jacks, the bounce is virtually gone.

I'm going to add two additional scissor jacks behind the wheels for a more permanent solution. I'd also like to add the jt strong arm jack stabilizers to complete the job.

Extra scissor jacks at mid-trailer might help (I was thinking about it myself), but the BAL Lock-Arms are AMAZING, you might want to try them first. Between my x-chocks, power stab jacks and the new lock-arms, our rig is rock solid.

Just bought a new 27 DSRL and took delivery in April. My first observation that I did not like was the amount of movement after leveling. Oh, and I should add that I ordered it with electric stabilizers thinking about the convenience of leveling quickly. Well, to say the least, I was extremely disappointed with the movement even after buying new X chocks for the wider axles.
SO, I purchased a set of BAL stabilizers and actually mounted them just ahead of the axles, after testing different places. THIS IS THE TICKET. I am very happy with the results and would recommend doing this to folks with this issue. Very solid now. You won't be sorry you did this modification.
