SteadyFast Stabilizers

Anyone use this system? If so, how do you like it? I have a 2013 32TSBH that rocks and shakes like you are at sea. Considering adding the SteadyFast system, but several concerns. Do they really help $350.00 worth? Also my unit has the enclosed underbelly, not sure if I can install this type of system on it without tearing into the material. Any advice will be appreciated.:lizard:

I hope I can help with the installation question. This past weekend I installed the Steadyfast stabilizers on my 5th wheel. The kit comes with everything you need to install based on the different frame types. I don't know what the frame is on your TT but if it's 2 3/8" or greater I-beam then you need to drill 4 holes vertically through the beams. If it's less then you drill 2 vertically and 1 horizontally. All frame bolts are self tapping, so you only need to insure that you don't drill into water, gas or electrical lines. On mine I needed to move the underbelly enough to stick my fingers in there to see if there were any obstructions prior to drilling. This was needed on only 1 frame mount, as the others were not an issue. My 5th has BOTH 2 3/8 and 2" I-beam frame, so I needed to utilize both installation types for the I-beam.

I have yet to go camping, first trip in 3 weeks, but I do expect that they will work very well as the driveway test worked well.

I have it on my 365BHS 5er.. LOVE IT!!!

I've had the BAL versions on a previous TT and the STEADYFAST performs 10x better. I will not own another TT or 5er without the STEADYFAST system.

Get them --- you will not be dissappointed.

I did the JT's brand on mine and they made a significant difference. There was 4 legs in the front and 2 in the back. The back required mods to the power stabilizers and bike rack in order to mount them. To be honest the back ones are harder to dial in due to them not being the exact angles suggested by the manufacturer, but the front are perfect and work great.

There are a few manufacturers out there and most all of them have been installed on one unit or another here.

If you call Tweety's who sponsors this forum and say your a JOF member they may give you a further discount on what brand they stock.







Have two very good drill bits on hand and as mentioned above check with your fingers for any hidden obstacles before you drill.

Thanks for all the advice and the purchasing tip. I emailed the company and they stated I coulod put the brackets on top of the underbelly cover, so I will purchase the set. Thanks again.
