That's exactly what I use! And although I can't claim a "rock-solid" camper, I'm not going for that either.

I was considering trying some but the only ones I can find are70" max length. Not sure thats long enough to brace my landing gear. I have to check, but I park in a storage lot and will have to wait until I can get by there to measure.

On post 3 those are over the road tractor trailer cargo bars.
I had to cut them both down as they were to long.

Just wanted to provide a review on one of the stabilizing bar systems. I picked up a set of the "LockArm Jack Satbilizing Bar" from PPL for $67. I mounted them on the landing gear of my 5ver and along with the xchocks I already had, i am amazed at the difference it made. there is no movement whatsoever on the frond end of my rig no matter how much I push on it. The rear is still wiggly but I'm going to try some cargo jacks back there and if it helps, probably get another set of the lock arms for a permanent fix.
