Leveling options

I have a 2013, SS 2300 and we are looking at automatic leveling options. I wanted to know if anyone has the Big Foot Levelers on their unit and if they would recommend them, or is there another aftermarket brand there is better? Thanks!

I have Bigfoot levelers and they work great. Now with that said i have not owned another brand. But.....I am very pleased with Bigfoot and they have worked flawlessly for me.

Just Bigfoot stabilizer here

We have a 2017 MBS 2400 WS and have the Bigfoot Stabilizers on the rear. they do help take the sway out of the MH when the full length side slide is out.

A 4 piston Bigfoot Automatic leveling system isn't light. Are you sure you want to add that much weight to your aleady near capacity Class "C"?

Bigfoot Automatic System For Ford E-450 Chassis

Almost $3700 plus installation.

Better plan on keeping that RV for a long while because you will never recoup the cost.

Leveling Options

Not sure what the Big-Foot Leveling system weights, but we have the Chevy 4500 on the SS 2300 so I am thinking there is ample weight left over?

look in your drivers door frame and you will see what kind of carrying capacity you have. Remember, black water, grey water, and fresh water weigh 8 lb/gal, passenger weight counts, and everything you may add also counts, including the tongue weight of any trailer you may tow.

I don't have a clue what your 2300 can carry.
I do know that the my MBS 2400 WS has a carrying capacity of just over 1000 pounds.

My GVWR is 14,200 (GAWR FRT 4,680 & GAWR RR 9,600). We carry the average amount of gear including a couple of bikes. I probably need to weight is next time out. Thanks for the tip!

little heavy weight

X2 on bigfoot the way to go. Our 2300 (chevy) has a 4310 CCC, the 2250 is 4560! Not alot out there less than a pusher is rated as high. The ford 2300 is listed at 2550, then it is a judgement call. But it sure makes life a little more civilized..
