Is there a good elec. stab. jack?

The Lippert electric stabilizer jacks that we got as an option on our trailer are just not very good. The metal is very thin and the bolt that connects the down-brace to the arm is too small dia. and appears to flex. When someone walks in and out of the trailer, it rocks from side to side. The trailer rotates about a point at the center of the horizontal crossmember. When someone inside is walking, and even the dog, the trailer moves fore & aft and bounces a lot (even with bottle jacks in the middle). You can see the stab. jacks moving around. Not impressed. I could weld on some new metal to strengthen them and install larger bolts, but.... I'm wondering what other choices are out the there for these type jacks without having to modify brand new ones? (Lippert frames are terrible and I am not surprised what their jack is like.)

I see that UltraFab has what *looks* like a nice one. Has 4 motors though. Maybe that's a good thing or not? Anyone know if it's better than the Lippert one? I like the UF elec. tongue jack we have.

Came across this one on ebay. The angle braces go right down to the pads which looks like a good design. The sell does not know what make it is though. Anyone here know? Maybe it's no longer made?
