Taking the bounce out

Hi anyone have suggestions on taking the bounce out of my 06 30’ Jayfeather?
Thanks
Jim

Welcome to the Forum.

A couple things come to mind, do you have a loaded weight and unloaded weight? Does it bounce more loaded or empty? How old are the tires? Old tires with weak sidewalls will flex more. The next question what is the Load Rating of the current tires? I went from the stock Load C tires to Load E, camper bounce was practically eliminated and tracking improved too. You can also check your springs to make sure they’re in good condition and tight. Do you use a WDH?

Hi thanks, we are parked and leveled, we need to take the bounce out so we don’t rock the trailer when someone moves around or sneeze lol.
Thanks a lot
Jim

Already have the Xchoc’s and I made sure the tires were at max pressure 50lbs, should I use the stabilizers to take the bounce out? I have them just snug on the blocks. I know I’m not supposed to lift the trailer to level it using the stabling jacks on all 4 corners.
Thanks jim

I bought 2 telescopic stacking jacks, put one on each side as best I could half way between stabilizing jacks and it sure helped my bounce. IMHO

BAL stabilizers. JT's Strong arms or stedifast are just as good. These will do exactly what you are looking for. I have a post with pics if you search.

On one of our previous trailers we had the same problem, I found screw type jack stands at eBay or Amazon. They helped a lot.

I like those screw jacks, and to place a pair on the frame right in front of the wheels.

You will never get rid of all the bounce. After a while you don't even notice it.

Couple things that also help. I place a wood block under each stabilizer to spread the weight over a larger area. Very helpfulon softer soils. I will also go back and tighten up the stabilizers some times before bed, sometimes the next morning, and sometimes both.

Save money and go with this easy solution. Proven and all my camping friends have their various versions. Doesn't matter.
