Our Lexington 283GTS came with HHW levellers and we love it. Won't be without them again.

Our 2014 2500TS cam with the Big foot system and it is great.
Almost all sites are not level and with the touch of a button you do not have to run around and check the leveling of the unit. On manual control for example , if the front end is down just put up the two front jacks and you are done.
time saver and great system. just put a 2 x 6 piece of wood under the feet before you put them down as they will tend to sink into hot pavement or a wet camp site..

Looks like the consensus is that auto levelers are fantastic on any size rig!!! I know we love ours. 2jcsontheroad, find a new salesman and get what you want! 😁

I, too, was on the fence about adding them to the order when we ordered our 2861, but I am sure glad I did! Like others have said, the stabilization alone makes a huge difference, and the 10 minutes saved not playing with the giant legos is just more time on bottle (wine that is). There is also a certain satisfaction that comes from watching our empty rig contort to perfect level like a posessed low-rider! Not sure if it would be a deal breaker for me on an outstanding deal, but I would recommend to anyone that they opt for the levelers if it is an option.

The next time I do a one-nighter I am going to try not to push that auto level button (going to be tough) and see what a full day without being level and stabilized is really like. Sadly, it looks like it may have to wait until Spring as last weekend was a little colder (34 degrees) than ideal for us.

Good luck!

What they said, esp CapJohn about dealers. Also, first time you roll in after a long drive in the rain and all you have to do is hit the button, you'll be glad you have them.

Being level is more critical if you are using a Propane/Electric refrigerator. I don't run my refer, and I don't mid being a bit off-level.

YMMV
We were quoted $7500 to add it later, $2250 to order it with it. No brainer there.

Everybody that stated they love the BigFoot is right on. Not only will you love them for your use it will help in the resale if needed. Yes a great idea to get them.
