Stability for front jack on 206LTD

Hi all. Love my 2011 206LTD. I have a question. This camper has the jack in the front however it's just the shaft. The shaft has two holes so I guess I can buy some kind of plate for stability. It's the jack on the front of the unit used to provide stability since this camper only has rear stabilizer jacks. No big deal because I have a piece of wood to keep it still however there must be a flat plate that I could get. I hope seine knows what I'm saying. Lol. Click image for larger version

I would go with the fastway jack but you can add a wheel so you could move the trailer around if need be, that's what we use to have with our old pup and then used these for stability.

I know exactly what you mean! We purchased our 206LT used. The prior owner added 2 pull-down Jack's on the front corners to supplement the tongue Jack pin and the scissors stabilizers on the back of the trailer. I use a wood block under the tongue pin. With all of that, the front still feels like there is limited stability laterally-particularly if the tongue is extended due to ground slope. I have been contemplating remounting the pull-down Jack's 90 degrees to provide more lateral stability. The pull downs clearly improve the situation but I can't help but think it could still be better!
