Thanks cekkk, the reason I asked is my Jayco rocks/bounces a lot and my traded travel trailer did not rock. Once I put the stabilizer jacks down it was stable.

There are folks here who know a lot about suspensions. Maybe they can point you to an area that might be causing excessive movement. I forget how long your rig is, if you said, but if the new one is longer, you may need more than the four stabilizers for comfort.

The ManStore (HF) has cheap scissor jacks.

Bounce is just part of the party folks. You can calm it down but you will never keep it from bouncing 100% until you build a foundation under it. Remember, you're in a box with a suspension and air filled tires. It's to be expected and is part of the RV life.

My 29 RLDS never feels real stable, so I guess the extra jacks will probably help. So I take it you need to put them on both sides?

Most certainly.

They help some, but I'm still surprised at how much it bounces with simple footsteps. Is this normal? Any advice?
Check out this thread. I made stabilizers out of 2x8 boards and they work great. Take about 80% of the wiggle and bounce out of the trailer. Also agree on the x-chocks. That helps with the tires moving.

Hi, I will pick-up my 27 DSLR this week and was wondering what is the the ground to frame height and the ground to slide-out height?

I sold my jacks with my last trailer (older/lower) and need new ones but I forgot to measure those two. My dealer is 50 miles away so it is not convenient and besides, I will by everything at lowes or home depot.

Thank you......

I added 2 more stabilizer to our 28BHBE. Got them at Harbor Freight and they are spec'd the same as the Lipperts, 24" max height and 5,000# each. Definitely made the trailer more stable but we do feel a little movement. Really only notice it in bed when one of us gets up to use bathroom.
