king pin stabilizer

Hello, The Wife and I just bought our first fifth wheel. I was wondering what is the best and most affordable way to satbilize the front of the trailer.
Thanks

We had a King Pin Stabilizer that we used on our last 5th Wheel, it worked ok.

We now have the stabilizer arms on our landing legs, works much better and do not have to find a space to store them.

What kind do you have. I found some BAL's for $61 plus shipping. I have a set of X-Chocks and I like them a lot

Currently I do not use tire chocks at all, made no real difference after installing the stabilizer's.

This is what I use, rock solid, no rock front to rear, no rock side to side.

I only installed them on the front landing gear, our rear stabilizer's are not the old style scissor jacks, so we did not need them on the rear.

Go with the stabilizer arms, they work much better then the king pin stabilizer. All you do is lower the jacks and tighten the locks on the stabilizer arm. They really work well.
