I'm looking for stabilizers too (for my 8281WS, so should be almost identical frame to yours), and wondered if you'd considered any of the other sets before getting the BALs ?
I was hoping to not need to do too much extra work beyond just drilling and bolting
It isn't the BALs, it is the trailer. I needed a solid connection, so I couldn't mount the bracket through the trim strips, and in the front I would have missed the I-beam if I had placed them up against the lip of metal separating the front bay from the underside sheathing.
I believe the all are similar and would run into similar issues on my rig. Wouldn't hurt to take a look at your rig to see if it is the same as mine.
I read reviews here and on Amazon, and picked the BALs. Didn't see, to be much difference between them and the StrongArm units.
