Jack Pads for 364

Looking at Pads, a lot to choose from.

Some of these on Ebay for a good price, any reason to avoid or be concerned? Looks like these are the special duty ones an extra " thick but price is good. Will be about the same price as Hosspads Motorcoach size but will be a bit bigger.

Appreciate the thoughts before i send the cash

Made mine out of a 2X6 sandwiched between 1/4 in plywood and the coated it with Flex seal.

They are about 12X12, used Nylon rope screwed to the side for handles.

Cost was the two cans of Flex seal.

just checking.... are you looking for ridged jack pads ?

The 'Hoss-Pads' look to be a little flexible and would conform to the terrain.
However, would certainly provide a good 'pad' for under your leveling jacks.

The 'Special Duty Outrigger Pad Model#: DU-D15152'... looks like they are priced per each on the website @ $146.30 and quite heavy...am I missing something here ?

'Ford Idaho".... and I are on the same page.... simply make them out of wood and some good paint....or the 'flex seal' as suggested.
If you don't have the equipment to cut the wood to size... most lumberyards will cut to size for you.

Good luck in your choice.

Well, I can get the special duty ones for less than 40 each shipped....so that led me to the question of why so expensive, must be better, etc? Id prefer not to have wood for splinters etc down the road.

Thanks,

The Flex seal has been a factor for splinters, there has been none I can see.

However.

You don't need something that heavy for a Georgetown.
I have 4 of these from Camping World when I'm in a grassy campgrounds.

I know that some areas around me have asphalt parking pads, and they are a requirement on those. Also, if i ever use off gravel or concrete for the most part.

I know I dont really "need" the bigger ones, I just dont care for the plastic camco type ones as several cracked just from my travel trailer while leveling. I wanted something big enough to make sure i can place them right, and the rubber type seemed to be the best fit.

Long story short, those DICA pads sell for like 146 each....picked up 4 new for 150 out the door (didnt ask why)...so its probably more than i need to spend, but i figure with the lifetime warranty my worst case is replacement or resell down the road.

I have some 2x8 cut in to blocks that fit and can be stacked. I even used fancy yellow paint.
