You will find that there are two kinds of people. The kind that like them and the kind that don't think they work. It is usually a 50/50 deal.

I have one on mine. Im a firm beleiver. I use the goose neck adaptor to tow my 5er. The tripod fits snug inside the adaptor. It keeps mine from rocking considerabley.

sounds like just another reason to not pay a warranty claim if you were talking to anyone with authority or knowledge of what you were asking.
If drilling a couple small holes in the flange of the I beam 3 or 4 feet from the rear is going to cause some kind of structrual failure this surely doesn't indicate much confidence in their product.
Maybe you could ask him how they attach the stablizers or bike rack. I think they are welded. Could you weld the brackets for the JT's on as they would. Or is that a problem to. Every time I have asked one of theese factory reps. a question about adding anything you get the same responce ,It's like your talking to their attorney not their engineer. Their philosphy is to always say no ,which provides them with no liability. Also No help to the consumer.

You mention "JT'S Stabilizer". I'm new at this, (and first posting) but what specifically is the product and where can I get details? Thanks.

I have to agree with you. I have used a tripod on 4 different fivers. from a 7000 Lb to my latest 07 Designer 14500 Lbs. It was cheap and works pretty well for me. With the rear power jacks We don't get much movement or sway when setup for extended periods..
Just my 02 cents worth.

You should be able to Google JT's Strongarm Stabilizers and get all you need or go to Tweety's and they have a picture and write up on them. I know there are lots of posts on the pros and cons of both set ups but believe me the the JT's or similar stabilizers are the way to go.

Thanks all. I've been on their site and have the details. I'll now try to find a dealer in southern Ontario. Will be in the states soon, so may wait until then. Again, thanks a lot.
