The Steadyfast system works great too.

A modified set of rear stabilizer jacks installed in front of the axle on the 2x4 tube on mine stopped all bounce. I lower them until I see the trailer rise just a little and quit. Takes all the pressure off the tires & suspension.

X2 This set up really works. It should be included from the factory as standard equipment.

Just got back from 9 weeks in FL with the wife. I had the same problem with my Shamrock 183. WHile sitting outside and the wife moving around inside, I observed the wheels moving slighty to and fro even with wheel chocks.

I did a quick search of this forum and decided I will give this a try...
Wheel Chocks, Homemade - Dutchmen Owners

I would probably try to use wing nuts on the threaded ends.

I think I read somewhere that the X-type wheel lockers that they sell are a bit too large for the distance between the wheels on my rig, otherwise I might I would buy one of those.

I don't think I can elimante all movement because the hybrid bunk ends act as levers and would amplify any movement in the beds... but I think this fix should get rid of the rolling motion.
Wing nut will not allow you to get enough pressure on the tires. I have made a set and you have to put a lot of pressure to stop the bounce.

Thanks to all who posted replies. I have ordered a set of X-Chocks.
If that doesn't work, I will add a set of jacks to middle.

X-Chocks alone will not do the trick. As OC said, the JT Strongarms will take out almost all of the movement. The middle jacks that OC added are merely icing on the cake

I just bought a new camper just like yours and have found that I have the same bounce problem too. What steps did you take to solve the problem and was it a success?

I believe, I asked that person what steps or remedies he used and what his success or results were. Yes I did READ the posts, but I wanted the person who has the same camper as I do, to tell me if he was able to get the bounce out. Sorry, if I my question irritated you in some way Mr. Black!

The user hasn't been active on the forums since March. I wouldn't expect a response.
