Square vs round foot pads

I am thinking about replacing the foot pads on the front legs of our 5th wheel. Currently we have the standard rectangle ones, and I am debating on purchasing the 9 inch round ones from lippert that fit the square legs. Does anyone have real world experience with this swap? Have you noticed any difference with the bigger round pads? I also have JT strongarms installed as well just not sure if changing to the round foot pads makes that much sense.

If you are thinking stability, probably no difference as they all pivot. If you are concerned about soft surfaces and sinking in, it may be worthwhile, but a 2x6 will do the same thing.

X2, if your concerned about soft soils, than the largest surface area under foot is best.

That is what I needed to know just wasn't sure if there was any other benefit to the larger foot pad other than that. Thank you guys I appreciate it.

You can buy snap pads for the 9" round landing gear. Increases contact area even more.
