Advice on best stable set up

I have Bal X chocks on tires and stabalizers down but when DW walks around which is a lot I can feel it. It isn't as bad as the pop up we had but I still notice it..... what can I do to minimize this?

More stabilizing braces- if you have the crank down side stabilizers, BAL also makes braces that go in place from the frame to the bottom of the pad north/south, thereby effectively stopping most of the remaining movement. They aren't cheap, however. I'm happy with 2 x chocks. Yeah, it still moves some, but for the price, I can live with what I have now. Randy

A lot of that motion your feeling when anyone walks around can be minimized greatly by using the tire chock. These scissor locking tire chocks hold your trailer secure.
One on each side will keep the tires still, a lot of that motion you feel is just the wheels trying to roll back and forth even with a wheel chock on the ground.
You can get them at hensleymfg.com and camping world. They really work!

The only way to stop the TT from moving is to jackup trailer and install cement blocks every 3 to 4 feet front to back. The only draw back is that the TT is no longer movable till the blocks are removed. Not all GG will allow you to put the TT on blocks.

I wonder if putting a bottle jack under the frame between the wheels on each side and jacking it to just where it starts to move the frame may stop it. These trailers with the Alco suspension seem pretty softly sprung, a bonus when traveling as it keeps stuff from flying through out the trailer but kinda springy when walking about.
