I found that using a stabilizer on the front of my 16xrb model also helped reduce the "rocking".

My dealer informed me during my delivery session to not use the stabilizer bars as a method to level, nor to crank down on them more than 1/4 turn after they touch the ground.

For the front, I went with this:

It seem to still rock quite a bit. I'm wondering if I didn't have the jacks down far enough. I basically just put them down till they touched the ground as I know they aren't supposed to support the weight of the trailer.

They need to do more than just touch the ground.

Wouldn't have expect them to have much effect on stability...

Anybody used these? Bit cheaper than the x-chocks..

Yes we have them; we bought one for each side. A definite improvement over not using them. The only issue we've run into is that with the Andersen levelling system that we use, if we're at nearing the max height of levelling, the chock won't fit as the bottom of the chock hits our leveller. So then we can't use it on that side. And the trailer moves more without it on both sides (but less than without any).

I crank my stabilizers one turn after they hit the ground and user x chocks. Still get some movement but you have to remember its a trailer on wheels
