Toy Hauler Stabilizers

We have a 2016 MXT3190, and while I know there's going to be some wobble, I have heard that certain aftermarket stabilizers will help significantly improve movement. Any suggestions on the best stabilizers to purchase? We're also wanting stabilizer jacks for our couch slide out. I would feel more comfortable with a little more support, since the entire couch slides out. Thanks everyone!

If you do not have the standard stabilizers...the only stabilizer jacks that should be used on a large TT like the MXT is a scissor design like:
BAL Scissor Jacks Stabilizing System - Set of 2 - BAL 24002D - Stabilizing Jacks - Camping World

There are simpler designs with a single leg, but they are too light weight (made for pop-ups).

The scissor design can also be powered, but we just used a cordless drill on our TT's jacks...less wire, less risk of failure, and I already had the drill.

About slide-out stabilizers...I believe every maker discourages their use. The slide should be tight against the camper wall. If you jack-up the slide, the normal/slight flex in the frame as you walk inside the TT can pry on the slide seal and joints...not good.

Best luck and safe travels

If you are looking to eliminate wobble and already have the stabilizers check out J T Strongarms. By far the best remedy for the problem you are encountering.

We do have the standard scissor design stabilizers. I'm looking for a couple additional stabilizers to use for eliminating the rocking whenever someone walks around.
