Where from in Minnesota? I am actually in Wisconsin, however I can be in the Twin Cities in 30 minutes. Also I noticed in your profile a picture album called first trip to the UP of Michigan. I liked the camping by the stream.

Hello from WI. The only things I have on my list, and in my dads 5ver is 2x6's for leveling and under the wheels. The x chocks are on my list. I don't plan on getting the tri pod, but I am getting a king pin lock so no one can run off with my camper. Haven't had any stability issues with my old mans unit to worry about anything else at the moment. Just my 2 cents.

With the JT's a tripod stabilizer is not necessary. Sold mine as I never use it anymore. One tip with the JT's - level out, tighten them, then lower the landing gear just a bit to take the slack out. Big difference.
