King pin stabilizer

For all you 5er owners: what do you think of the tripod, king pin stabilizer?

Used one on our last 5er and it worked great. Really took the wobble out. Our new 5er has the JT StrongArm stabilizer bars so I am really waiting until our first out to see if we will need the tripod or not. So far from everything else I have read on this forum, the answer is going to be no. If that is the case, one lest thing to carry in the back of the truck and setup.....

We've got the JT StrongArm's front and rear. They work very well.

I use one along with a home made stabilizer. In my mind, it is just one more "hard point" to help keep shake and bounce down.

We had one at first, and it worked very well. But I made a set of stabilizers for the landing gear so I wouldn't have to walk around the king pin tripod. But truthfully, the camper would probably be even better using both.

We use one for our 2012 V-Cross 275 fiver and it take out most of the shake and bounce out. I would recommend one. Good Luck
