I will mention again I am more looking for better stabilization from the jacks. The factory installed ones are super cheap and wobble. This is another reason I put 4 - 6 additional stabilizers down the frame. I would love to cut that in half or to zero if I can find better jacks to stabilize.
You are on the right track contrary to the previous responses... I put 4 scissor jacks around ALL of my campers. I put one in front of and one rearward of the axles on both sides... I level side to side as you are wanting to do by an inch or so as well... all this is doing is unloading the suspension to help take the spring out of walking around... It has worked great for me in the past and is working great currently... I wouldn't recommend putting a ton of pressure really far back as mentioned this is when you can tweak the frame and cause issues with the doors... but i do not see any harm in having them near the axles...
infact, my previous trailer had a tire blow out one time and to get the tire off and back on (front axle) I put both scissor jacks on the rear side of the axles down and used the tongue jack to raise the front and wa la... I even went inside while it was like this to use the restroom and all doors seemed to function as needed...
As far as brand I had BAL. I didn't like their hand cranks but the jacks were very stout. I can't imagine you could go wrong with either...
