Auto levelers

May be a dumb question but do the newer TTers have auto levers? I guess I'm lazy but not sure I could live without them in our State parks which are never level and require a lot of work if done manually.

auto levelers

TT's have stabelizers only whether they are manual or electric. You must first level you unit as best you can then lower the stabelizers to support the unit. This as always requires wood or plastic but gets the job done. pardon my spelling.

But why can't TTers have automatic levelers? Seems it would be easier than on heavy motorhomes. I just don't get it but there must be some obvious reason I am missing.

There is no real reason not to have auto-levelers on TTs, except for maybe the cost involved. But most of the auto systems involve the replacement of the front legs on fifth wheels, which are not present on TTs. Titan Rieco (sp?) sells a system that is all electric and would most likely work best on a TT.

Talking auto levelers

I am not positive but maybe the reason TT's do not have them is the frame on a TT is not as robust as a MH and would possibly result in a lot of twisting on trailer sidewalls and frame causing damage.
Just my thoughts.

If you can place a support under the frame for repair work, then using a lifting device should work also--just need to place them close enough toward the axles so the weight of the trailer is equally divided.
Have you ever seen a tire store place 4 jacks under a trailer frame to replace all the tires at the same time? Same principle.
