Question Leveling Jacks

I am thinking about installing leveling jacks on my 31 ft BT Cruiser and would like to know if anyone has put leveling jacks on their class C or had someone else do it for them. Also what was the cost.

Leveling jack installation, on Class C's can very greatly by , both in cost and actual availability. Also by chassis manufacturers re-commendations , if the frame is actually strong enough.
What chassis and year is your coach on ?

I have a 2008 Gulf Stream, 31 ft on a E450 chassis.

I put on my rig - a little pricey but well worth it to this day. I have still on occasion had to put down some leveling blocks - mainly at state parks but still worth it.

I have a renegade Villagio and I'm taking it to equalizer systems to have levelers put on in May. I looked HWH, Bigfoot & the equalizer system. Equalizer had a good price and will install them at their factory in less then a day. They where also the closest for me. Will post more after they are on.

I had a 2012 Fleetwood Tioga and had HWH put on a set of kick up jacks. They did it in one morning. $3100 in 2012 at their factory. They worked well.

Price is going to range from ~$3000 to ~$5500 installed depending on which system you get. There shouldn't be any problem with that particular chassis. I am partial to the BigFoot or the HWH. My newest RV came with the Bigfoot automatic system from the factory. To me they are well worth the price unless you live where all campsites are perfectly level.

Had HWH installed on my 2001 Gulf Stream 31' class c. Loved them and worked equally as well as the factory install on my current class a. Cost was about $3200 for the manual joystick system.

Check your stated load carrying capacity. Weigh your rig with it completely loaded and then see if the additional weight of the levelers would pose an issue.

We have them on a 2010 Fleetwood Pulse, 24D. Great system. also have pads made from 3/4" plywood. I used them as backup jack stands when changing tires.
