Never put anything down, yet. Should cut some length off mine as the trailer is fairly low to begin with.

What say you?
I'm in agreement with you. However we still put a board down for the stabilizer pad to rest on.

That guy won't be happy with his storage bags when he breaks camp.
That gravel will have cut the bottoms of the case to "heck" and gone.

I like to keep the stabilizers as close to 45 as I can.

It may. I do know that Lynx specifically says not to stack them more than 4 or 5 high.

But for just some stabilization- I don't see an issue.

I bolted 12x12x2 boards to the bottom of the stabilizer feet. Self storing when retracted. Next time (if there is one) I would put some 12x12 tread plate over the wood.

Things you see in an RV Park

Another cheat here- this one wasn't in a RV park, but it was a wild little rental "RV". It is a mini-van based RV, totally affordable (not much different cost-wise to a rental) and has many RV-like fixins.
