Welcome to irv2
If I were you I would not try to take all 4 off at the same time. Is there any way you can take 2, have the new tires mounted, return to the 5er and install the new ones,then take the remaining 2. Doing all at the same time can put an awful strain on you frame, possibly mis align your slides, plus more unsuspecting damage?

I have dne this using a bottle jack and jackstands. I jacked up each axle and suppoerted them with jackstands where the axle bolts to the springs. With the trailer supported by 4 jackstands on the axles where they bolt to the springs, there was no unussual stresses on the frame. It is still supperted by the supension and axles just as if it were sitting on it tires. Was able to take all 4 tires to the tire dealer at the same time.
