Scissor Jacks

I'm looking to replace the scissor jacks on my travel trailer. The ones that it came with are a bit flimsy and Id like some better ones. Does anybody have a suggestion on a good place to buy them?
Thanks!

Most of the scissor jacks are made by BAL, though I'm sure there are others. A hint to make them "stronger" is to build up some cribbing with boards placed under the pad. In that way they don't extend as far and will not flex as much with back and forth movement.

A note, many original equipment jacks are welded on with little frame reinforcement. You might have to weld or bolt some additional steel in place to widen the frame pad which I had to do on a previous TT. Also, if your existing jack are held in place with the usual supplied large sheet metal screws, replacing them with bolts and large flat washers will spread the load on the frame mating surface
