Some folks are affected by that slight movement more than others.

Added jacks in the center frame area helps, as does the addition of something like the JT Strongarm stabilizer systems.
The movement is an interesting thing. A lot depends on how the other people in the trailer actually walk, how they put their foot down, how they carry themselves.

It's much easier to add extra stabilizing systems than it is to change how people move in the trailer!

I think that this is the sort of thing Trailer Life could do a really interesting article on and actually make measurements and show data on the before and after using one or more stabilizing systems...

This is so true. My wife and I can walk around in our Windjammer creating minimum to no movement, but a soon as my 16 year old son starts walking around, it feels like a trampoline.

I just purchased the 8329SS about a month ago. It sets on a permanent summer lot. It has much more bounce than my old camper. Went to Walmart purchased the Camco RV stabilizer Jack stands a couple days ago and made a huge difference. $40 purchase was well worth it they come in a four pack.

I just purchased the Camco stabilizers. I read that some people are placing them in front of the tires but they had different models. Is that a good placement location on the 8329SS?

I put mine half way between tires and bumper. Same way with the front about half way between tires and factory stabilizers. They work great! You might need some concrete or wood blocks to reach the frame..

I put my stabilizers in front of wheels there is a cross member there that can be reached without blocking.

Using Chocks with your 8329SS?


Which ones?
Anyone know the actual distance between the tires?

I haven't yet. Mine is pretty stable with just the Camco jacks.
Has anybody had any luck adjusting the bathroom sliding door? My old camper had a nut adjustment on the top rail.

Yeah I use BAL X Chocks, they fit fine. Its tight but not that tight where you can't use them. I would not use them on a hill to hold TT. Use a standard wheel chock for that. I had unhitched and rehitched once and forgot to pull X Chock out, TT spit them out like it was nothing. No damage but no real holding power either. They slow down the rocking once parked, but these units are almost made to bounce.
