Shaky trailer!

Going into our second season with our surveyor 321BHTS and last season found it generally shaky when parked. It is high off the ground and with a long frame I guess it affects the stability. Any one have this issue or resolved a shaky trailer in some way?

I bought two and helped in my last camper at 29'. I now have the 32bhds and will see how helps on that. Easy to setup and take down and store.

Our Surveyor is much more stable than the Puma, it has a Valterra type setup from the factory.

Too bad you're not closer, BCCamper. I have two I used when we had our Flagstaff 27BESS - now with the motor home, don't need them. I'll be unloading them soon, but I have no idea what shipping would be.

I added standard stabilizer jacks in front of the forward axle to my 31 footer. No mor shaking or bouncing when set up. Amazon has them (7500 lb) for about $68 a pair.

I picked up a pair and set them up this weekend. I did not mount them to the frame. It helped out immensely. I had more people over than normal and the bounce was not nearly as noticeable.
