Mike.A, I have been kicking around the idea of the stablelift system also. I would like to see the video if possible. Let us know how the install goes.
Thanks,Scott

Mike A, I also purchased one on Friday last week. I told them I was on the 'fence' about the money, until I read this forum. I told them that these guys sold me on the Stable Lift, and personally, I like the fact that Mont address' concerns online like he did. It really sounds to me like a company that isn't finished with a sale until all customers are completely satisfied. How could you go wrong. Thanks guys, and thanks to Stable Lift.

Can you tell me what is a side mount kit and what do you use it for?

Richard,
the sidemount kit is from I was told, to mount the clamps or c-channels that are used for tie downs to the side of your truck frame instead of to the bottom of the frame. Supposed to be an easier install. I dont know for a fact, dewdo or some of the others that have installed already would know better than me. I will find out for sure in about 4 weeks when it gets here.

Richard,

With the Side mount brackets: With the side mount brackets, you have to drill 2 - 3/8" holes in the side of the frame of your truck for each saddle bracket (what stablelift presses against under the truck.)

With out the side mount brackets: Need to drill 1 - 3/4" hole on the bottome of the frame for the saddle bracket to attach.

All the side mount brackets are really is a flat piece of metal with a piece of 3/4" tube welded on, with 2 pre drilled holes on each side of the tube. all this is powder coated.

Wow! Quite a few taking the plunge for the Stable-Lift!

Mine was installed on my 1993 Lance 900 when I got it and I have to admit out of all the options it's the best one and worth it's weight in gold.

It actually turns your camper into a stand-alone camping unit. I've even used mine at a campground that thought that s*** flowed up hill. I had the back step almost three feet off of the ground and it never moved.

I will never go with jacks again.

As far as the mounts, I see that they are offering the side-mount kits now. I made my own side mounts out of some plate steel and 3/4" steel pipe. I just made the plates to mount to some existing holes in the frame.

Dewdo,

Glad to see your enjoying yours. It's makes one wonder why they didn't buy one sooner.

Sinclair,

I have used mine on uneven ground and have never had a problem. White pines can make for some pretty uneven terrain. A little common sense when you pick where your going to drop it goes a long way.

Cybervet65 was there at Crazy Creek when I unloaded it between two huge white pines and all of their roots. You can ask him if it was a problem if you want.

This is a question for anybody using Stable-Lift with a DRW truck . . . I think that includes Dewdo, not sure who else.

Question is: How wide is the entire setup?

Obviously, the Stable-Lift must be wide enough (at least in front) to clear the duals, but it can't use swing-out brackets like ordinary jacks. [Can it?] So it must be pretty wide all the time. I'm curious just how wide that is.

Thanks!

Sterling

I have a dually, when I asked Stablelift how wide it is, they said no wider than jacks with the swing out bracket. This was a concern for me because I have a narrow concrete pad I park the camper on, with jacks I have only about 5" clearance on each side. I hope it fits otherwise it just became a boat pad.
