Elephant Foot Jack Pads??

We're waiting on our new Sabre 36QBOK 5th wheel to arrive in ~3 more weeks. Have any of you used the Elephant Foot jack pads on your 5'ver? If so then what are your thoughts on these? They are a little pricey, but I'm seeking the convenience of not having to lug around blocks of wood or other types of things to provide a firm setting for the camper.

Our 5er weighs in at about 15000 lbs. loaded and we just have the stock pads on our jacks and I don't put anything under them and never had any problems with them sinking whil parked and we usually have it parked for a week at a time. I sugest you try the stock pads before spending the money. Also sometine down the road you might want to put JT strong arms on to stablize the rig when parked and they come with big round replacement foot pads.

Thanks for your feedback...very nice to know. I ordered the JT Strong Arm supports for our camper, but didn't know that they come with any type of pads.

Check out the web site Light Duty - Outrigger Pads . These are fairly light weight pads that are built for this type of work.
