I have used them in the real world of camping (other than my driveway) and I have found some issues but they work great once set up. I just came back from site that was severely sloped and the back end was up in the air and the front end real close to the ground. Even tho the front ones were slanted because the drawback is there not adjustable but it still worked. The back ones I had to use a block of wood to raise the ground so they were at an angle to draw them together. Other than that it was awesome to use the trailer with no rocking 🤘🏼

We found that we only needed them in the front when combined with the the OEM stabilizers in the back work of our 195RB. I can see that if we have a site that is much higher in the front there may be an issue fitting the wood stabilizers in place. Went to Acadia a couple of weeks ago and the site was off a little side to side, but I was able to place extra blocking on the low side.

I can't wait to build these and try them out. I'm sure with 5 kids 1-9 years old they will make a huge difference.

Newbie question: Why don't the 4 scissor jacks keep the trailer stable, I thought that was what they were for? Your solution is genius, now all I need to do is to look under the trailer to see where I should place them. Thanks for the contribution!

Our trailer only has two OEM stabilizers and they are in the rear, so we added these in the front ad they have worked well.

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.

If you decide and it doesn't fix the issue these did for ours, JT STRONG ARM bars took about 2 hours to install after figuring out the bad instructions

We did the same thing. We have the 4 stabilizers, added 2 more just forward of the tires, and use x-chocks on both sides. It is still not stable enough for our 29L (33 ft bumper to hitch). We have an enclosed underbody, which is giving me pause with this mod. It is under a cover right now, but from what I can remember our I-beams are not accessible because they are covered up. Do you think this will work by using a 2"x6" to run along the frame and attach the 2"x4" via either a notch or hinge?

We have an enclosed underbelly as well and I think you'll find that only the inside of the I-beam is inaccessible so the mod should work. I'm going to try this also because I did the same as you in adding 2 extra stabilizers amidship. More stable than before but still have some side to side rocking.

We just tried a set of these and were very impressed by them! Made up another two sets for our next trip out and should have a very stable trailer now.

Thanks for the great idea!
