Permanent campground ?

Decided to put 28 foot Dutchman into a permanent campground. I see that allot of rigs are jacked up and placed on cinder blocks. Should I do the same thing? And what are the advantage’s of doing that?

You didnt mention if the others had also removed their wheels, but if the trailer will be spending the rest of it's days in this spot, blocking it up is a way most stabilize their units, and is worth doing. Some use stabilizing jacks for this so any future settling can be compensated for easily.

You can also put skirting around the bottom to keep most debris from blowing under it. That won't help much for critters that would want to take up residence under there but it will slow them down.

It will be considerably more stable on blocks,(3 places each side) and the wheels should be removed to eliminate any movement caused by the springs being compressed by wheels supporting some weight (if the park allows).
