2021 270FKS stabilization.

Just bought a Salem Hemisphere 270 FKS. My previous camper I used the X Chocks. It will sit on a permanent spot alongside a deck, but may in the future, be towed. Like I said I used the X Chocks before but the axles are too far apart to use the ones i have. I have been looking at the wider X Chocks, JT Strong Arms, BAL lock arm stabilization bar, and the Steadfast stabilizers. I wondered if anyone here had any experience with the different ones listed and could compare them for me. As I said I only used the X Chocks before.
Thanks in advance,

I have the steady fast system and its rock solid and a DIY installation.

We had a 37' 5th wheel on a seasonal site for 8 years. I used my home made between the wheels chocks on our previous camper and they worked good. I had the dealer install the JT Strongarms for and aft before delivering the 5er to our seasonal site. Combined with the home made wheel chocks the camper as quite solid. IMHO your X Chocks combined with the JT's will give you great results.
