Big Foot Levelers

I've been researching the Bigfoot Levelers and have decided I am going with the manual system. I'd like to find out a reputable place to buy one online. I've seen prices from $1695 to around $2500, for what appears to be the same system.(EZ system) I just want to make sure I'm not getting ripped off. Also, I'm interested in installing it myself. I have a 2013 3170. From what I've read, it should have mounts already installed. Has anyone installed their own? If so, what are your thoughts on the difficulty level for someone that is somewhat mechanically inclined. Thanks for any help!

I'd like to install myself as well on my 3010. I could only find it offered for sale from Quadra, the manufacturer.

I was looking at those for a 14 sunseeker. The part I am not sure about is the manual system has to be operated in pairs. Front back side to side. What if one corner needs to be extended more than the others do you have to use blocks under it?

As for price the best I foud was just under 2500 shipped to my door.

I have the Bigfoot system on my Solera. The Solera only has two hyd cylinder in the rear of the unit. The Bigfoot system came installed and they are NOT a leveling system; they are a stabilizing system and blocks must be used to level.

Bigfoot does offer a leveling system so use care in ordering yours.

I wound up trading in our 3170 for a 3010 that has the big foot levelers on it already. We've only been on 2 trips so far. 1st trip no problems with them. 2nd trip they started beeping while driving saying they aren't all up. They were up so I had my wife unplug a wire from behind the drivers seat to make it stop. I've read in other posts that it's probably a sensor that's a little off. Besides that problem I like them. Makes leveling at the campsite pretty quick and I think the motorhome feels a little less rocky. The only other problem I have is that the clearance is a little lower with them so I have to use 2x12's at the end of my driveway so they don't scrape on the sidewalk.
