Side to Side shaking while in use.

Hello,
No matter what I try, my camper moves side to side when camping. It so bad that when one person is sleeping and moves, the trailer shakes. I was thinking of changing the stabilizers to scissor jack style to see if that would help. Currently, it has the type of stabilizer that when cranked down an arm comes down. I don't know what else to try. Any input or recommendations would be appreciated.

Level trailer side to side
Then lower tongue jack about an inch below front to rear level
Lower rear jacks down onto blocks so they don't have to extend alot
Set rear jacks tight
Then raise front of trailer back up to F/R Level

IF that doesn't help

Install cross bracing....JT Strong Arms etc to provide lateral support

Another option.....
Portable jacks placed under trailer frame for/aft of tires
