Hey,

Real close to purchasing this to reduce movement on our parked Bullet. Does anyone have any experience with this?

x2. just follow the directions. plan on a few hours for installation. High quality product. One recomendation. you have a choice of using the included self tapping bolts, or drilling and tapping and using the included regular bolts. My advice, drill and tap. I'm not a fan of self tapping bolts. to easy to break. what makes them good for self tapping does NOT make them a strong bolt.

Love mine...they work great. BTW, I used the self tapping bolts and had no problem at all, but I do recommend using oil on the bolt during installation and drilling the proper sized pilot hole.

Thanks for the replies guys. Unless my TT was hitched to my Excursion, the movement in the trailer was very bouncy at times. I'm pretty pumped to get this thing hooked up. Clanton please let me know how long shipping took. Although I realize being in NJ vs where you are may vary Thank you.

The system is so good that manufacturers should start offering SteadyFast as an option on new units. Dealers that don't push these units are losing a great opportunity.

I also have the Steady Fast system on my trailer. Works great, is easy to install, and only takes a few minutes extra during setup of trailer. And if you need any kind of help (I did because of how the drain lines run) you get to talk to the guy that designed the system. Get it you will be glad you did.

Reading this has me thinking... since I was getting close to purchasing. I have a 35' Jayco TT that has ALOT of movement when parked no matter what we do. But the frame is NOT I-beam. So the discussion of Self tapping vs. drill and bolt.... would that work on my type of frame? Would obviously have to be screwed into frame because drilling a hole and bolt and nut application would not work.

Thanks
