Stabilizer jacks

I have a pretty much bare bones class c coachmen. I am trying to get rid of that swaying and rocking. What are the options for portable stabilizers? I dont want permanent mounted. I believe there are portable scissor jacks for this. Which ones are the best and do I need 2 or 4 of them. Thanks

If you mean they're shaking of the coach when people are moving around, good luck. In my previous trailers, it was JT Strongarms that had the most impact, in my Class A, the hydraulic jacks have to essentially lift the coach off the suspension to have a significant effect.

I have 4 scissor style that i mounted .. i have pic in a post in this forum,,

I fiddled around where to place them.. each rig is a tad different .. Plus getting just enough pressure on the jacks is important. I try to level by driving on blocks then use the stabilizers to tweek the RV the last inch or so where possible. Keeping the RV loaded on suspension helps.

If your coach rocks a lot when walking around inside while parked, that indicates your suspension will benefit from some upgrades. Benefits primarily benefit "handling", but spills over into your area of complaint.

I advise to start with heavy duty Bilstein shock absorbers and heavy duty Helwig front and rear stabilizer bars, then re-evaluate.

Our rig SEEN HERE has had lots of suspension upgrades over the years which make it handle very nicely which also improves stability while parked.
