Whitehawk 31bh movement

I have a whitehawk 31bh. When our teenage kids are in the back bunk area and move when sleeping the camper wiggles. I have all the support jacks down but still get the movement.

What have others down to get the trailer to stop moving on these longer trailers?

Pretty normal for such long trailer frames. What helped us a lot was to use the x-chock in-between the tires. Cut down the movement quite a bit. Still there, but reduced. I think you would really like them.

Have the same camper. Shaking and wiggling have always been somewhat of an issue and seems most notable in the front bedroom. I've found that placing about 10" - 12" tall wooden blocks under the four corner stabilizer jacks seems to help. Seems like the less the stabilizer jacks have to extend, the less shaking there is.

Wobble stoppers are in your future. Easy to make, or you can spent big bucks $$$.
Made mine for under $50.
2x4s, ratchet straps, and eye hooks. 2xs length is roughly 2 1/2 to 3', dependent on your tt.

Thanks, PaulB, good idea. I'm going to look to see if that will work for me. That would be great if it does.
