Rear Garage Stabilization

I have a XLR 380AMP...what is the best way to stabilize the rear of garage as there are no factory installed jacks or stabilizers? I have 2 70# labs that I can feel move around in their kennel...torture when trying to sleep. Also should help keep structural integrity loading and unloading toys from garage. Pictures and suggestions welcome!

That's weird we have the same rig and the rear end has electric stabilizer Jacks which I thought was standard.

I've owned two toy haulers that at least had scissor jacks near the rear. Mine is still bouncy so I am trying to find a solution.

I do own one of those and use it. I need to borrow a second one and see it makes much difference. I am attending a rally end of this month so hopefully someone there will let me borrow one to test out.

Have some

I do have a set of the X-chocks that I put between the last 2 tires on each side. Seems to me there is a lot of real estate hanging behind that last set of hydraulic jacks and the rear axel that could be like a springboard. Just haven't made a decision yet on what to put back there for some help. Using an old set of "screw jacks" given to me to try and help...guess they do a bit...

Install scissor jacks in the rear. Cheap. Then add x-chocks and JT StrongArm stabilizer arms. Solid after that, and I have a 35' stealth I can attest to.

I have a 2312 and it came with rear stabilizers but no fronts. It was not good. I added scissor jacks on the front and now it is very steady.
