Which aftermarket levelers?

For those of you who have added levelers after purchase, which did you choose and why? Bigfoot, HWH, Equalizer Systems, etc. I have a 2018 Thor Axis on order and am considering adding a leveling system. All 3 of those manufacturers make a system that will fit the coach. I'd love to hear any pros and cons from those of you who have done this. Thanks!

My coach has big foot. I think the four individual units are far superior to a single hydraulic unit with pressurized lines going to the four revelers. Also, the big foot levelers pumps the rod both up and down. Other systems will pump down and use springs to return back up. Sounds good but the pump not only has to pump the rod down (raise the coach) but also stretch the springs. Don't know anything about price difference.
Big foot is me choice.

Thanks for the input. I appreciate the advice. I like the idea of the Bigfoot system as well. Glad to know you're happy with it!

I'd be happy to talk to you about your RV and a new leveling system for it! There are some pros and cons to the individual pump set up Bigfoot uses, as well as their leg switch retract sensor. I just don't want to sound like I'm bashing the other guy on this forum!

You definitely have a few options when it comes to hydraulic levelers. Feel free to call me anytime and let's make sure you've got all the info before making a decision!
