Self stabilizing jacks

I currently have a 2008 Jayco Melbourne C class which is not equipped with any stabilizing equipment. I find that while parked, there is quite a bit of movement inside the vehicle so was thinking of purchasing some kind of electric or hydraulic system so looking for comments or feedback. This lifestyle is all new to us so looking at making it as pleasurable as possible. Thank you

If you are looking for an electric or hydraulic system, this would probably be a leveling system and not so much a stabilizing system, if you are just trying to eliminate the movement when someone is walking around or getting in and out, the scissor type that you find on travel trailers work just fine, that is what i mounted on the back of our Class C.
If you want a leveling system HWH and Bigfoot both come to mind, these will level your camper for you.
Hope that helps.

I mounted a set of scissor jacks on the rear frame rails behind the rear wheels, I used an extended reach wrench so I wouldn't have to climb under the unit to raise and lower them each time. I only installed the 2 in the rear and it eliminated most all of the movement in the unit as we were walking around and climbing in out of the entry door.
I have heard of people adding one or two up front also to improve the stabilty but I did not need to do this on ours.
Hope this helps
