In this case 3 is better than 6 because of the longer angle created when each bar reaches completely across, attaching the frame directly to the opposite leg, instead of to the center of the RV...

Yes they work well.

I have the JT Strongarms on my 5er.

I consider these to be the best quality of this type of stabilizing system.


And you have had Steady Fast, and they are not as good as JT


No, but I looked at them on a friend's 5er before deciding that I thought that JT's were better. It's called shopping...... My opinion might not match your opinion - you are free to think what you like.


I have no opinion on which is best . I only have experience with what I have. I can't say Steady Fast is the best, there is no way I can know unless I have used other brands. I do know they work well, and do what they say they do .

We are very solid using our Jt's and it is hard to be better than solid. maybe the set up isn't done correct but both work so no problem. Love the way we sit still in a wind storm.

I bought the Steady Fast. They are at least as good as the JT's and maybe better because the arms go across the coach. Don't want to get into a 'mine's better then your's' contest, so let's say they are equal. I DO know that the wiggle is out of my 32' Cameo.
Now the BETTER part. Only three points to turn. They are much larger wing nuts. They are easier to access, no climbing under the coach to access them. If they are just the same, the access of the wing nuts make the Steady Fast much better in my book!

google the Winfield site and check that type out also.

It is the way I decided to go.

I have always used the Bal's between the wheels for fore and aft and chocking anyway.

You might want to take a look at these before you decide. Your total cost is about $50. Good luck & God bless!

x3... 2.5 years of full timing with them. They are the single best investment for a fiver.


That's why I got the Steadyfast. 3 knobs instead of 6 and easier to access. They probably both work well, I'm just lazy. Easier is better for me. I'm impressed with the constructions so far and installing them has been easy. We will try them out in a few weeks.

I looked at all of them before I settled on the JT Strongarm. I decided I preferred the steeper angle of the JT Strongarm. Having to do six T-bolts instead of three adds an extra minute or so to our routine. Not such a big deal. I fashioned a tool to tighten/loosen the T-bolts so I don't have to reach under.

They work just like they say they do and our toyhauler is very solid now. If you have a long heavy 5er anything will be better than just chocks and a king pin tripod.
