Using stabilizers

My wife and I recently bought a 2020 Eagle HT 30.5CKTS.
I'm wondering if the tripod stabilizer that goes under the king pin
really is worth it. Can you tell alot of difference? Thanks.

We use one on our Pinnacle. It helps with the nose bounce when walking fore and aft.

My buddy has a 29.5 and he has the scissor jack style chocks between the wheels and his rear stabilizer jacks put down at various levels and still has a LOT of movement in the front end. He bought one of those tripod style supports for the kingpin and what a difference that made. I was REALLY impressed.
We tried in on my Northpoint and it made some difference but not much because for some reason I just don't get any movement in mine.

I have the Eagle HT 36.5BHs. Yes there is less shaking with the tripod stabilizer.

We had a Cougar w/out auto level. Old style scissor jacks in the back. It made it slightly better. We bought the North Point with auto level I found it was un-necessary for us and sold it. For us, the NP is very stable with the 6 point system w/out the need for extra gear. One less bulky item to haul around.

I thought this was a must so bought one before we picked up our NorthPoint 383FKWS back in Feb. But as others have said, with the 6 point stabilization, didn't notice much movement in the front. Probably will stop taking it as it adds a lot of weight to carry.
I do think we will be getting the Valterra 020106 RV stabilizer for the Back - back bounces slightly
