You might want to try Xchocks. X-Chock Tire Locking Chock - BAL 28010 - Chocks & Levelers - Camping World They helped stabilize our camper. We also use these as well with pretty good success. http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...abilizer/34337

Out of curiosity- where/how are you using the Universal RV Stabilizer?

Mine isn't a Roo mine is actually a Shamrock 25RS and I put one across the back bumper and one on the side by the door.

Thanks for the suggestion on the chocks. After reading the replies, I remembered that the PUP was a lot more stable after I started using a BAL Single Axle Tire Chock. Tried to use the BAL chock with the Roo on just one of the tires, but it wouldn't fit, so I've just been using the plastic wedge chocks. I will definitely give the X-chocks a try.

Do you use the X-chocks on both sets of tires? On the PUP, I used the BAL chock on the side with the door & the plastic wedge chocks on the other side.

Anyone have a part number for the Roo tandem wheel chocks? The ones I bought when I took delivery of my Roo didn't fit so I returned them. I went with the wedge chocks and did have noticeable rocking. I would definitely buy the right set of wheel chocks.

there is no part number specifically for the Roo.
you have measure the distance between the wheels. there are a number of different brands that make chocks to fit inbetween. Rotochoks are the best but are expensive. some Roos may have different distances.

And there are RotoChocks for different wheel spacings. Not a Roo, but my wheels are really close.

I also use the Ball Tire locks on both sides of the tandems. I also find the less you lower the stabilizers the less front to back movement you will get. So with the ground clearance I have I seen this mod and made a set. My Pup is 30' long as it has a deck to put 2 ATV's on it and has 26" ground clearance.
