A lot of people have abandoned the tripod these days and starting using stabilizers that stay on the camper. The ones I am talking about are SteadyFast Stabilzers, JT StrongArm stabilizers and the stabilizers from WinfieldRvProducts.com. The first two stop front to back and side to side shaking. The Winfield stabilizers offer a cross brace on the front jacks and when used in conjunction with roto-chocks or bal-chocks significantly reduce all motion in the camper. I just put a set of Winfield's on mine due to having the under mount storage bins(can't have full set of the other two due to that) and have really enjoyed the last 2 camping trips. I believe that YouTube has videos of the JTs and the SteadyFast for you to check out. Not knocking the tripod as I have never tried it, just relating my experience and my FILs. Happy camping!!!
