I found that sissor jack between the tires reduced the movement a lot. Don't jack the trailer up, just snug the jack up tight to the frame between the tires, reduces the bounce that comes from the suspension system.

They sell a little jack thingy that goes under your steps to keep the trailer from rocking on entry and exit. Last time out I just stacked up "lego levelers" and some wood blocks under there. Trailer still wobbles a little but not from walking on the steps anymore.

I added two more stabilizer units, one in front and one behind the axles. Then I used an impact gun to lower all stabilizers. The trailer does not move since using the electric impact gun, I have a 2007 sig ultra lite trl.

I agree with jaxfl, and I live there, as well! Put it on concrete blocks. If it's truly a permanent site, just get an automotive jack, and set the blocks under the frame in rows on each side of the frame, like a mobile home is set up. Movement should then be eliminated. Randy

Those power stabilizer jacks (basically glorified T-jacks), don't work very well. If it isn't going to move for a loooooooooooooooooooong time, get it up on blocks. Make sure it is uniformly supported, though. Don't support it just from the front & back. Make sure to also support it in the middle. Also, make sure you don't put too much stress on those power jacks. They'll easily bend.

Check out the Easy Chock Wheel Locks on ebay under RV chocks. I've got a pair and they really stabilize the trailer well.
