Thanks for your input and the photos.
thank you for the comment ! I am taking close up photos tomorrow for another frf member I will be more than happy to to post for all . theres others on here that disagree with the way mine work but I have had no issues and they work great IMO . I like to save a buck when I can and this is one way I saved at least $130.00 . and my fab time and install was similar to prefabbed units for more money . Besides I KNOW mine will never be "light weight"

Yeah im just thinking out loud here but who wants to lug around that big ole king pin jack in the back of your truck and load it and unload it 4 times to go camping !

f1100 - I would like to see any additional photos when you post them. I am not a veteran RVer, but everytime I see one of those king pin jacks, I wonder what good, if any, they offer.

I guess I will look them up and see what people have to say about them.

Actually the king pin tripods work very well for eliminating front end sway. We used one until I built my stabilizers, just got tired of it being in the way.

If it's not to much trouble could you post a list of parts and pieces. Would be
helpful. They look great.
