1/4" lift or so isn't that big a deal as long as you don't start doing things that will twist the frame. The vast majority of the weight is still on the tongue and wheels. Any more than that probably isn't a good idea.

We also use the Legos, but I then bought 3 of the universal rv stabilizers. They are a bit of a pain to set up. But our PUP is rock solid after that.


Usually, they are on sale for Low to mid $40's.

I agree the stabilizers need some pressure on them in order to remove the bounce. Our biggest shake came when someone went up or down the steps. A coule of scrap pieces of wood underneath cured that .

I used 2 of the Valterra stabilizers - one under the rear bumper and one under the front frame behind the propane tanks - and a support under the steps on my Flagstaff 27BESS. Trailer was rock solid. These were coupled with my X-Chocks.
