Hey scotty
We installed 7,000 pound scissor jack/levelers on ours and found it great if you only need to lift a few inches ... anything more than that you would need one of the hydraulic units
i also got extra large foot pads for them ... mounting was easy as they U bolt around the frame

I'm thinking along the same lines. I agree with "C Driver" scissor jacks would be the way to go. Camping world has a set for around $70.00 they are rated at 5,000 lbs. You might take a look there also. The PPL option also sounds good to me I'm gunna check that out too.

We added hydraulic jacks when we first bought our 2003 Minnie Winnie, love them. The dealership arranged it before pickup, somewhere in Indiana. Can level in bad weather from inside MH.

When we had our 1999 Minnie Winnie, we added HWH jacks and loved them. Have run across several folks with the sisor types and we have them on the rear of out 5er. They are fine for stabilizzing, but not much more than a couple od inches in level adjustment. You really need a regular leveling system if you plan to use them for leveling.

Like TXiceman above, my '99 Minnie Winnie has the HWH jacks and I'm very pleased with them. For some reason, not to many class C's seem to come with them as standard equipment. Everyone has their own opinion on this issue, but personally I think C's need them as much as any other coach. They are an expensive option on most C's. I bought my coach from a previous owner (not new). I have the paperwork where they were installed by the dealer about a month after the initial sale. The jacks were the key item that made me buy this one as opposed to others.

Wondering . . .

For those of you who added the scissor style manual jacks to your motorhome, how many did you install? One on each corner for a total of four?

Thanks.

I also would like to know what others have done with the scisser type.

We added the HWH levelers to our class C and loved them...just not the cost.

As for the manual sissor type, They are really not meant for more than a couple of inches lift to snug up and secure the coach. I have the manual sissor type on my 5er and the max I can get is about 2 inches and that is a chore.

You will still need to carry an assortment of 1 by and 2 by wood to do the rough leveling first.

Unless you stay at fairly level sites, I personaly think you will be a bit disappointed in the manual lifts.
