camper is a rockin

I have a 07 29bhs. When camping with jacks down, The camper moves a lot up front when the kids are tossing and turning in back. Any suggestions? Will wheel chocks help with this?

Yep, a good set of wheel chocks will reduce TT movement.

Extra stabilizers just in front of the axles will help a lot. We have the pyramid ones from WalMart but some people use the scissors type.

We use X-Chocks and find they help quite a bit. Still moves a little, but it is a house on wheels I suppose.

Bal locking stabilizer bars. Eliminates about 90 percent movement. About $75 for a pair. Best thing is once installed you don't have to store them.

Trailer Rocking

Take a look at the SteadyFast Stabilizer system. I purchased and installed the system on my 2009 32BHDS. My unit is 35.5' long and I had extreme side to side motion. I had the locking chocks which basically really only helps fore and aft movement. After installing the SteadyFast System, I have eliminated 90% or more of trailer rock and gave the chocks to my daughter to use on her trailer. Not hard to install and the instruction are easy to follow.

I don't put the scissor jacks down all the way. I use lynx levelers under them. Seemed to help allot not being extended all the way.

One of these inexpensive stack jacks placed on each side under the frame just in front of the axles will do wonders in reducing rocking, along with the previously mentioned wheel chocks.
