So you added rear stabilizers in addition to the 6pt Lippert?

Yes. I love the hydraulic leveling but they are anything but sturdy. I've got lil lack Russell dog, and when he prances around the living room the trailer bounces. It seems to me that the rear jacks are to far forward. You basically got the whole rear of the trailer hanging out past them unsupported.

I'm assuming your using a ratchet strap between the stabilizers to provide the needed down force. Nice setup!

I agree. They should have had the rear stabilizers further back. Having them right up against the wheels doesn't make sense to me.

Explain please.

Explain please.
Without providing any type of down force on the stabilizers, they are just swinging arms. A ratchet strap between the feet will pull them together and down, providing down force and stabilization.

Exactly. The strap effectively tries to lift the rear. Same as a Jack uses a screw. Camco actually sells something similar to this setup. I was just able to use scap metal that I had on hand. Thus I was able to build these for less than 20.00.
