Installed on the camper. Went on fairly easily. Can't tell how effective it is since the camper is on jacks, but seems fairly sturdy.

Did the instructions recommend mounting it low like that? I'm wondering if there is an optimal brace point for stability.

I was always afraid that the stowed wobble stopper would interefere with the clearance between the outer dually fender and the jack.

The instructions show it mounted low, and that would give the most support. When my dually jacks are swung in, the brace is strapped to the back of the jack.

They do. At least on ours they do, so DH has to remove them every time we break camp. It only takes a few minutes extra. DH changed the bolts and put some sort of grease on them to keep them from seizing on, as they kept doing. He broke a wrench trying to get them off the first time. I guess they are meant to be permanent, but we have square jacks and a dually with VERY little clearance.

They really do increase the stability. No sway even with the big dog moving around.

If you use your TC off the truck most of the time, then we would say yes.

We take our TC off every time so that we can move the boat in and out of the lake. We have a perfectly solid camper thanks to the wobbl-stopprs. We've been in some pretty good winds and didn't even flinch.

Just remember to work out how far your flairs stick out.

Swung the clamp around to clear the dually flare. May not be quite as sturdy.

But had a tussle unbolting it. The lock nuts that came with the system were not the nylon insert type, but a type that deformed the treads of the bolt making them virtually unremovable. After an hour of trying, finally had to hacksaw the bolt. If you install this, throw away the 3/8" SS nuts and get some regular lock nuts from a hardware store.
