Never used one. Looks different than the usual ones I see. Yall got a problem with thieves up that way? Thieves must have read about the problems we've had with ours. They won't take it.

That does look pretty hefty. I bought this one from Camping World.

And on a different note, I would consider this plus the other benefits it offers

Amazon.com: BAL 25066 Fastjack King Pin Stabilizer: Automotive

We will have THIS for sale on Friday at Goshen after we have our JT Strongarms installed

Any early takers?

OC I saw one "sorta" like yours, but not as hefty, on Amazon for $16.00.

We actually lock our tripod on to ours, but just thought that was a different looking option for those who don't use the tripod.

saw a couple of one star reviews on that HSV.

Ours is steel (dealer stopped selling the lighter weight ones after a lot of returns due to bending) and has heavy duty chains to brace the three legs.

Ain't gonna happen. D&D Chassis is in process of shutting down all operations except those deemed necessary by TOWTA. The OldCoot is shutting all fabrication down! I didn't retire to work!

We have not had any problems and have owned them since last NOV - maybe because they are designed for a Lightweight and not a big rig? Dunno
