Our Windjammer used to really rock when someone is walking around. I also ended up getting a pair of x-chocks and these cheap Camco Stack Jacks:
Camco Stack Jacks - Walmart.com
One pair goes between rear stabilizers and rear tires and the other pair goes four feet forward of front tires. I just snug them up to the frame. I have to stack up (4) 2" x 8" x 8" boards for these jacks to reach the frame. Rocking has really been drastically reduced, but not fully eliminated.

So gas hog did you notice a pretty big improvement with the stands? I was going to get those but after adding the second chock I may not feel the need.

The Camco Stack Jacks made the biggest improvement over everything that I've done. These are very cheap nothing like car jack stands. I just snugged them up against the frame.

Gashog. How much outside storage space do these require? I like the idea of these.

I mentioned this before, but these are not heavy duty. Cheap thin cast aluminium with a detachable steel screw/nut that just sit in a octagon shaped hole on top of the stand. With this said they work great for stabilizing and $30.00 for a set of four at Walmart. I had to try them. Funny thing, the in store price was more. I showed the checkout gal my phone with the internet price and asked if she could match it. I ended up saying I'll go outside buy off the internet and walk back in and pick them up. They matched the Internet price.
