Stabilizers with 6 way auto level?

We are just inches away from ordering a new Columbus 320RS. Will be ordering with the 6 way auto level. My question is whether I will need a stabilizer package such as the strong arm. I guessing with the 6 way auto level that it may not be necessary. Would like some opinions. Movement of the trailer when walking around really bugs me. Thanks.

I have a 40 ft fifth wheel with Lippert 6 way auto level. There is still some movement at the rear of the camper when we are walking around. I have considered adding manual stabilizers. The rest of the camper is stable. How does it feel on the dealers lot when moving about in the rear?

I also have a 40 ft fifth wheel with Lippert 6 way auto level. I notice no significant movement at the rear when we are walking around. Don't feel need for adding stabilizers.

I forgot to add that I am glad that I got the autolevel. It works wonders.
