Wobble wobble shake.

Hi, all. I've been lurking on the forum since prior to purchasing our Shamrock 23IKSS. I have gained a lot of information just reading posts. I appreciate the feedback and experiences everyone shares about their Hybrid.
We have had our trailer about six weeks and have gone camping twice. I am thrilled that we have had no issues with our Shamrock. In fact I am impressed with the overall quality of construction and improved materials that are used in today's RV's. I was especially happy to find that or trailer pulled like a dream and my fuel mileage is not bad at all.
My only complaint is the amount of wobble and shake we have when set up. I see many different ways of addressing this from X-chocks, BAL lock arm stabilizers, Camco wheel stops, and some home made remedies.
Any feedback on what would be the best bang for my buck?

Thanks!

Start with a set of tandem wheel chocks.
See if that improves things.
For most of us, that usually does the trick

A set of X-chocks and four of these is what I would try.



Place one like so under each stab jack.

I installed the Steady Fast stabilization system on our 23IKSS and really like it. It is easy to install and works great. Check it out at steadyfast.com

Really like those stabilizer supports, Ford. Will be making a set prior to our first trip.

Nice weight/space-saving idea! Now, where did I put that dado blade?

Interesting and cheap way, might need to try those because X-Chocks do not make a big different, I thought of putting a set of Electric Stabilizers found in 5ers but at $3000 way not worth it
