We have found that every little bit helps now that we are in a much longer 5er than before.....

I had a tripod on my previous 5th wheel. It helped a lot. It also had a solid pin box and only manual jacks at the back of the 5th.

I tried a tripod on my current 5th. It has an air pin box and a 6point. I noticed not enough discernible difference to make it worth while to haul that tripod.

We added a stabilizer system front and rear which was worth every penny. I think the tripod would be a good idea but the outside is my husbands domain and I was out voted.

Has anyone seen the a-frame stabilizers that came as an option on newmar 5th wheels. It stows away in the nose. And attaches directly to the i- beam the runs across the front. I love mine. Wish more manufacturers did the same.
