After talking to the Rockwood folks, I got permission to "box" in the stabilizer mounting brackets without voiding the frame warranty. This provided a bit more "rigidity" but not what I'm looking for. The frame is a Lippert product and I have seen the Lippert electric cross frame stabilizer mounted on several UltraLite units. The mounting brakets for the system are on the frame and incidentally are about three feet forward of the rear bumper. So, all things being equal.ish, the electric system seems to afford a better solution to my quest for more stability.
I did consider the "strong arm" system, but there is no way to mount the stabilizer bar/rods to my trailer without major fabricating and modifying the frame. As a matter of fact, it was my original choice until the mounting problem presented itself.
I would still like to hear from folks that have electric cross frame stabilizer systems and their experiences with the system. Again thanks to all for the comments
We have electric stabilizer jacks on ours, still had some movement, bought the X-Chocks which did, in my opinion, improve the stability even more, but due to my wife's vertigo still felt uneasy. I bought 2 30" scissor jacks and placed them in front of the axles on the frame and she's satisfied no issues. So using all of the mentioned items I have a happy camping wife!
