Shout out to STEADYfast / Hanscomb Ent. LLC

Debated for some time whether to get STEADYfast or JT Strongarms for our 2014 PT Crusader 5th wheel. Finally bit the bullet on STEADYfast, just before heading out for the long weekend. My decision came down to ease of engaging after leveling. Sure am glad I did this.

The installation was about three hours for me and my buddy, relative novices to anything mechanical. Once we got a rhythm going, it went like clockwork.

I even made two calls to Paul (the owner...who answered both times and was great to talk with!!), just to make sure I was installing correctly...even tho the instructions were plenty clear.

Once at the campsite (on the Oregon Coast...for the long weekend, whoo hoo) engaged the auto-level, then zipped around and simply tightened the three butterfly nuts on the braces and ... BAMO .... no more movement.

I am so impressed with these things!! I have already tossed the tripod pin holder... not only was it a drag and effort to set up, it's effectiveness was minimal.

I can't say enough good about these stabilizers. BUY THEM. Worth every cent.

Absolutely agree!

I did a review of them on my blog:

Also agree, just recently read an article on how to pre-load the system when setting up. No more wheel chocks or king pin tripod. Quick and easy.

I don't understand what you mean by 'pre-load' the system? Where is the article? Thanks!

Paul was great to deal with while installing our Steadyfast system. We installed it on a Sunday and he called in the afternoon to see how it went. That's customer service

Great system, easy install and makes our fiver very solid.
