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.

Thanks!

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

Mine wobble a little. To be expected. What really blew my mind was the first time I opened the back pop-up and two of my grand children slept (rather played) there at night. I could feel every time they moved. They loved it though.

Ours wobbled a ton, even with x chocks. Our main culprit is side to side, not front to back. I built some braces from 2x4s that go under the camper. Here is a picture of when I was mocking them up. I installed screw eyes on them, and they really helped with the side to side rocking. There was barely any movement with them. Before it felt like we were on a boat when my wife or kids would walk around in the camper.

I'm considering adding 2 more scissor jacks in front of the front axle. Anyone that's done this to their trailer please chime in with your experience. I use X-Chocks as well but believe the little bit of wiggle I'm getting is more side to side than front to back.

I think the rule is that you don't want to use them to lift the tires off the ground. To me that would take quite a few turns once they touch the ground to make that happen. We keep ours good and tight, and on our week long trips, I'll raise them all and then put them back down again.

One thing that worked for me, go to the hardware store and buy a 6"x6"x8' and cut it into 1' lengths. I put two of those under each of my stabilizers so that they only have to extend a few inches. It is not really much of a pain and the cheapest way to keep your trailer from rock-n-rolling ($20 and some sawing).
