Suggestions for Jack Pads

I am looking at ordering a set of 4 jack pads for my Class A Diesel.

From the reviews, looks like the Road Warrior (RV Jack Pads | Stabilizer Jack Pads | Landing Gear Pads for Sale - DICA) 12 inch and Big Foot (https://www.outriggerpads.com/for-rvs/) 12 Inch pads would cost me around $ 200 USD, including shipping for a set of 4.

Anyone got a preference on those two, or is there another that I should be considering ?

I prefer a 12 inch pad for storage (in plastic milk container), but do I need a 15 inch pad ?

Thanks

I made my own from 3/4” marine plywood. Two layers, screwed (stainless) and glued together. Wear pad for jacks of plastic cutting board. Paint well with oil-base paint.

I use pieces of 4" X 6" lumber about 12" long with an eyebolt screwed into the end. They fit under a jack with about 2" clearance. The advantage is that the jack doesn't extend very far to get level.

If money is an issue go for home made. If it's not look at Dica. I like mine a lot.

On the size, I found the 12 x 12 were a bit too small, and we lost one when it sank into the ground. Had to pry that sucker back up. The ass end of my coach it heavy and doesn't like rain soaked grassy sites. I now use a 15 x 15 multiple layer plywood pads, along with several rear wheel leveling boards we can drive up on if the site is "level challenged".

I put Snap Pads on. I really enjoy not having to crawl around under the coach to position pads.

Snap Pads are being delivered by Santa. Getting under the coach in the rain is getting tiresome.🚍🤠

I have snap pads on my American Coach. It is just under 50k fully loaded and they make a huge difference.

I park on a gravel area and the pads would dig in several inches. After I put the pads on it left maybe a 3/4" deep divot.

Plus they snap on and one less thing to carry or fuss with once you get somewhere. Well worth the money.
