To those who have the 4 Quadra brand BigFoot levelers on your fivers:
Is your fiver stable when parked? By this I mean does your fiver shake when you move around in it? Or do you find that you need to use stabilizing jacks in the rear and/or a tripod under the pin to keep it steady?

Extremely stable. I DO NOT need any other stabilization with my "Big Foot's" & I have a 40 ft 5er with 4 slides. Great product..... go for it ! http://www.quadraleveler.com/levelingsystems/fifthwheels.php
A little movement, but not annoying or bothersome. After all, the trailer still sitting on 4 air filled rubber tires. I have Wayne's stabilizers, but seldom use them; I generally just extend the rear stabilizer jacks and that calms any "butt" wiggle in the trailer.
We have the Quadra Big Foot levelers and LOVE them. We already had Steady Fast stablizers and Rotochocks for each tire. But I have to say that after adding the Quadra levelers we noticed that almost all movement is gone. Very stable now. 38ft 5th wheel with four slides. We wonder why we waited so long to get the Quadra Big Foot, (I know $$$) but money well spent. Love them.
We already had our permanently mounted stabilizers on our Carriage for 4 years before adding the BF system 2 years ago.
While the BF does help with stability, it is a leveling system. We tried it first without tightening our stabilizer knobs. While the system helped some, the movement was eliminated when we tightened our stabilizer knobs. We are now movement free. Diana

The Big Foot system is not as stable as I thought it would be,(not all that bad) but I like how simple it's to set up and am not planning to add anything at this time.

We love the big foot system. Makes setting up so easy. Yes there is some movement but much better. We do use Roto Chocks, and Tri Pod stabilizer. We had the stabilizer so we still use it. I would use Roto Chocks regardless.

Our Cameo is a shorter unit with 3 slides and there are only 2 of us. You can feel about as much movement as we felt in our previous fiver with out the system. However, the pin box tripod helps a lot. The tripod pretty much eliminates the movement in the front where the bed is located. That way, if one of us gets up in the night, the other is not disturbed. Not a problem during the day. Phillip
