Our popup has 4 jacks, but I am unable to get the unit solid from swaying with them.

Has anyone used the Wayne's Stabilizer?
Wayne's

It looks like a simple but good solution.

Thanks, Jack

Jack; I have never seen or heard of those stabilizers sorry I am sure someone will make a post on them.

When we had our coleman pop-up I never had trouble securing it. After leveling left to right I would block both wheels in front and back and then Level with the front jack afterwards getting all 4 stablizers down just barely making the camper move as I tighten them and it never moved. I have done the same on both of the toy haulers and they don't move either. A thought is your not putting the jacks on wooden blocks they could let you move too,if I needed more room I used Lynks levelers because they locked togeather. Hope this all helps.

I also got rid of the flimsy jacks that came with the camper..Now I dont have to crawl under the camper to put them down or up...also less sway now.. photos of my new BAL brand scissor jacks are on my webshots.

I would just use a BAL Wheel Leveler instead of the BAL jacks. You run a lot less risk of getting frame damage. The Jacks are stronger that the frame.

BAL Leveler

I just went to the auto yard and pulled 4 matching scissor jacks and they only cost me $10 a piece and then some had a hole in the top I put a bolt through it and drilled a hole in the frame and now I can use a drill with a 3/4 socket extension on it and quickly and easy stabilize an even have a to jack the trailer in case of flat tire and the trailer won't slip because the bolt is in a retaining hole
