Personally I have five different types of trailers but I wound prefer the top one its more stable and stays put, the lower one I would loose somewhere along the line, Or I would bump the tongue & it would fall off the cone........

On a previous camper.. 22 foot travel trailer.. i used the cone type stand. It was pretty stable.. The jack actually rests down in the top of the cone.. maybe an inch or so. With the weight of the tongue on the stand.. I don't think it would ever tip over. I have read that some people had them crack .. when trying to support a BIG camper. I don't think I would use it for an RV weighing much more than 5000 pounds or so.

My main objective is to reduce the amount of length needed to extend the jack.. these cones are about 8.5 inches tall.

I constructed a Wood support that can be rotated (3) ways to give different Height levels as Not all Campsites are Level! It is light weight and Very strong with Composite contact areas! Youroo!! Pic. when I take one!

I cut a 2 x 12 treated into 4 or 5 11 1/2" lengths and screwed together with 3" drywall screws to make a big block

I would prefer this flip jack over the plastic cone.

A32deuce ...Using one like the top one, but 9 inches tall? Do you remove it while traveling?

And caper... does this flip jack stay attached while towing?

I am in clinton, tn.. will your flip jack work on a 2014 rockwood a122s? I think the jack shaft is the same as the rockwood popup.
