Tripod stabilizer

We just went from a 220 surveyor to the 272 Wildcat Maxx! We totally love it and the extra space makes it feel more like home. We have seen people using the tripod stabilizers and we're wondering if we should invest in one. We are wondering if it would cut down on the movement in the bedroom area....thanks in advance for your comments!!!

It will cut down on the movement, but not as well as something like the JT Strongarm stabilizer system. My tripod is in my shed and hasn't been used since I installed the JT's. If you were nearby I'd give ya mine.

It will help quite a bit. If you also use a pair of X-Chocks in combination it works wonders for taking the wiggle out of the wagon so to say.

Congratulations on the new RV and welcome to the Wildcat side of the forum.

The tripod well help a bit if you already have one, but the JT's Strong Arms are the bees knees. Great investment. If you are going to spend money I'd put it towards the Strong Arms. Besides, the Strong Arms are permanently attached to the rig, so nothing else extra to carry along and store. My $.02

We have been using our permanlently installed stabilizers for 8 years and have been completely satisfied. We are fulltimers and move often so as snomore said nothing to put up, take down and find a place to store. hugs, Di

X3 on JT's and add the X-chocks to cut down any front to back movement.
