Long term storage of TT

Hopefully we can get tags for our TT soon, and move it closer to home.

I want to tinker with it over the winter since it will be close.

I would like to elevate the TT so that I can get under it to do things. It's 24 feet from bumper to hitch, and a single axle.

I am curious about how to elevate it (jack it up and put it on blocks? use car repair ramps?)

In addition, how to stabilize it while it is elevated... which I suppose would depend on how I get it elevated.

... or... is this just a bad idea?

Comments/suggestions appreciated!

If you can figure out how to get it up on concrete blocks laying flat, NOT on the ends, then I think it would be stable enough. JMHO

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Blocks under the wheels, Jack stands or blocks under all 4 corners...
Problem solved. Good Luck!

Be careful. A friend died when a jack slipped.

I think the blocks on the corners are the best idea.
I don't need it too high, just needs to be accessable.

Thanks everyone
