Hello friends,
I was so pleased with how my home made stabilizing bars worked to eliminate side to side sway, I decided to make another for front to back movement.



The good thing about this one is that it will eliminate x-chocks which are tough to install if forgotten before I put the slides out. This one is easy to get to at any time.

Testing in the driveway suggests it will work great, and we'll give it a formal test this weekend when out for our 5th trip this season.

Could something like this work on a Roo? I have scissor jacks and rocked side to side pretty badly. Thinking about getting some x-chocks too.

They sure don't eliminate the need for the X chocks as they lock the trailer from rolling. I use them when hooking up, doing a pull test and also when unhooking. They are the very first thing installed after pulling into a site and the very last thing done before pulling out of a site.

Anyone have pics of something like this on a travel trailer? Someone said above it can be done on a TT, but it seems to me that the stabilizing jacks on my TT would not stand up to this kind of additional stress. I'd love to get rid of the rock and roll from my two daughters - can feel every time they roll over, which they apparently do all night long based on our first two trips in the new TT. It was always bad in our old pop-up, but I attributed it to being, well, a pop-up, and was somewhat surprised when the problem persisted in our new 30 foot TT.
Thanks,
Brian

going to have to try this my v lite shakes a lot when you move in it. x chocks and extra jacks in the middle of trailer weren't enough but helped.
