Call the company and ask if they'll fit, the person I spoke to was super nice. It's my understanding that they now have two sizes, maybe the new one will fit.

Thanks for your interest in SnapPads.

No HWH version yet however I can confirm we are well on our way to releasing 8" & 10" versions.

If you would like to sign up for the waiting list email your name, RV and HWH landing foot size (check all 4 jacks) to info@rvsnappad.com.

We'll make sure you're one of the first to know when its released.

Also we usually issue a discount to everyone on the waiting list

Since the Snap Pads are attached all the time I now just put the jacks down and done. The Pads add 62% more area to the jack foot so even on soft areas I won't have a problem.

Many newer, and some older campgrounds require pads under jacks now to prevent damage to the parking surface, I won't have to worry about having pads anymore.

Snap Pads originally only came in one size, I understand they have two sizes now. One thing I like about their product is they are made from recycled tires. Took less than ten minutes to install with a helper running the jacks. Great product!
x2, I order mine as soon as the big ones came out. $200 is kind of expensive for recycled rubber and not the easiest thing to put on (by myself) but 3 of them went on easy but one refused to go on or even attach so I could but a board under it., but so far they are working great. I always felt like those rounded steel pads would let me slide down a hill, I no longer have that worry.
Since i have cameras that show by jacks so I can see what they are doing from the drivers seat, I tried to put the glow in the dark paint on the pads before I installed them, but it just flaked off when I installed them, they flex quite a bit with 26K pounds on them.

Hi Jay,

Thanks for sharing! That's very interesting.
Yes paints, stickers or anything other material isn't going to remain stuck to the side of the pads for long. This is due to the nature of the rubber and the way it flexes.
As for one of your pads not going on smoothly, toward the end of our installation video you can see instructions on how to get the one side to snap into place.

Hope that helps.
Have a great weekend!

Made my own

Someone forgot to retrieve my ultra-high cost pads at the last CG..LOL No names mentioned. Here is my solution. I went to Lowes and bought 2 of the 8" wide plastic deck boards. (Tek Dek) I then cut them into 18 inch lengths. Laid two side by side and then applied Gorilla glue and laid the next two on top of those two, at 90 degree from the lower two. I then screwed them together using stainless steel screws. Drilled holes on all four sides for using my awning hook to pull them out. I have less than 40 dollars total wrapped up. I have used them 3 times and I love them. They handle the weight of my 35K MH.

How have they been holding up? Are you able to drill holes and tie ropes through them to make them easier to retrieve and more like the Hoss Pads?

I also used the barn mat but went a couple steps further.. I made 2- 23 for the duals and 2x2's for all the single tires.. these stay in the storage barn and when I get home I drive up onto these which keeps the tires off the concrete ! Then I made 4- 2818's for the leveling pads. I put a hole and a loop of heavy poly rope through the hole.. when we get to a site, I toss the pads beneath so I can later get them easily with a awning or boat hook before we leave.. we have used several times and they are no worse for wear and the campsites are left without issue!

Lol. Everything will break.

So far Corian seems to be just fine but it can be overstressed like everything. I'm not using them often but will report back anything useful.
