I can't say enough good about the STEADYfast system. Well worth the investment of a few hundred dollars. In addition to the Super stability provided, it literally takes 45 seconds to engage or disengage.

You will be disappointed with the Valterras IMHO.

Hmmm. Wonder what these would do? Assuming there is room to mount.

As you can see from page 2 on, opinion on these very greatly. I did some tests in the trailer and for us, side-to-side movement makes for a lot more wiggling than fore-and-aft movement. The plan is to try them under the a-frame at the front and under a reinforced crossmember at the rear.

I've heard mixed reviews but I wanted to try them for myself. A lot of folks who have tried and liked them have done a bit of experimenting with the positioning. We'll see - we'll have them the weekend after this one.

Well...I ended up getting the following:

1. X-chocks - $68
2. Winfield Cross Brace Stabilizer - $209
3. Winfield Adjustable Landing Leg Extension - $30

I like the fact I don't have to drill holes to install. I'm heading to Oregon right after Labor Day for a week or so. I'll report how well all this stuff works. The leg extensions aren't for support...they're obviously intended to make sure you raise the camper level....but I'll still report on how well I like them.

Thanks all!
