Unless you put the trailer up on blocks, you are gonna feel it rock some.
With the stabilizers and the 2 jacks in front of the axles, the shake is VERY minimal if not non-existant.

Bal products makes a entry level set for $100.00 for 2
I installed them on the rear of my 5er and they work great.
My front ones I also made out of otr cargo jacks.

We too firmly believe that if you want to eliminate movement you need permanently installed stabilizers. We had thought a tri or b i pod would do that trick but that didn't work for us. We added stabilizers over 6 years ago and have been happy campers ever since. Hugs, Di

I put The Pyramid jacks on each side of my wheels on both sides of our SV291 when ever we are going to be parked more than a couple of days. Drop the four corner stabilizers, place the pyramid jacks and then sung up all the corners again. No kids here, but movement is next to nothing and the Jacks are only $35 at Wally World.
