I bought these at the Tampa RV show. Spendy, but indestructible. They hold my heavy RV easily. I store them in my battery bay. The hardest thing is remembering to pick them up when breaking camp.

Pretty simple.....if you don't think they'll work for you, then use something else. I through out the idea as an option to the overpriced pads that often cost as much as $120 each, like the Big Foot Outrigger pads that you mentioned. That's almost $500 for pads!!!

My coach has SnapPads as they make them in my size. I don't put my pads down in areas that my OEM metal pads would sink, like a mud bog we once camped in. I just don't use my jacks in that situation, which has only occurred 2-3 times in 40 years. I have the SnapPads primarily for those campgrounds that require that you use a pad, especially on their asphalt. I'm lazy and refuse to haul, store and clean a bunch of wood or rubber pads, hence the permanently mounted SnapPads.

We full time (since Sept 2019) and have used pads less than 10 times. Have yet to utilize the fancy and heavy wooden ones I made. When I have used them, just plain large cutting boards from Walmart have worked. I keep them bunged together when not in use.
I fact, I've been thinking of getting rid of the wooden ones to save weight and space....

Since my Mrs. has no interest in camping anywhere without full hookups, we rarely use the pads I made. I have stayed in a couple of places that required use of pads to protect their concrete or asphalt parking decks. For that I made up some 16" x 16" pads made of two pieces each of some cheap 5/8" plywood I had laying around.I screwed the two pieces of ply together to make them double thick for strength. Finished they're 16" x 16" by 1 1/4" thick. They're really not heavy at all and don't take up much space. I lay them flat on the floor of the slide out trays and you really don't even know they're there. I added some hooks and rope so that I can place them and remove them easily using the awning pull down rod. I had the rope, plywood and hooks laying around so the cost was zero dollars and zero cents. If you had to buy what you need to make them you'd have to work real hard to go over $50.

Often those who say they don't take up much space have 43' or 45' coaches. On a 40' Dutch Star, (the only model currently made in the industry with a tag axle), we only have ONE pass through bay and one small 3/4 bay. Space becomes more precious. I didn't order mine with a pass thru slider, just to save some more space.

We have 2 x 10 squares that we have glued together. Since Iam cripple I cannot extend the pads. We found the appropriate pile of blocks and set them under the Jack's. We attached a rope to each pile to remove the blocks.

Last time people were looking for different pads to use, it dawned on me that the roadside traffic cone rubber pads would be perfect. They're 20" in size and only $13.00 each. Here's a link......

Keep in mind that these each weigh 16 lbs. No wonder that they keep traffic cones in place, lol!

I went to Tractor Supplier and bought a small horse stall mat 3/4" thick. Cut my own pads. Work great!

I bit the bullet and purchased the Bigfoot pads. I have a Monaco Dynasty 3 point system so I went with the 15”x15”x1.5” version. Total for 3 including freight and tax was about $150. Very well made, rope handle makes it easy to carry (12# each) and easy to retrieve using the awning hook. (The attached picture is in my driveway where I’m trying to spread out the load so as to not crack the concrete).

Snap Pads

I have a 2018 Dutchstar. Snap Pads told me that they do not make pads to fit due to clearance issues with the steerable tag. clearances to tight when turning.
