Actually no. The conventional wisdom is to get your roof and walls up and then
lower your stabilizers.
They can twist the frame just enough to cause problems opening the thing up.
Also -this bears repeating and I wish I'd been told this sooner than I was- DO NOT use your stabilizers to level the camper. You can really bugger up your frame doing that. Use levelling blocks (cheap) or a BAL leveller (not so cheap) -the stabilizers are just there to keep the thing from wobbling around like a trawler in a perfect storm once you're set up.
