As stated in another thread we are making the switch from travel trailer to fifthwheel and I'm sure we will have more questions to come.

Would be interested to hear from everyone regarding kingpin tripod stabilizers. Pros and cons please.

Thanks in advance for your input.

Regards,
The Piddlers

The only pro I can think is that it was easy to get rid of when I realized that it was worthless... #saveyourmoney [emoticon]

Other than tossing in the trash how did you get rid of it??
Since I now have JT Strongarms have no need for it.

I used one until I got the Steadfast stabilizers. It took the shake out of the front area but nothing really for the rear.

That just about sums it up. Save your money.

Best bang for the buck I've ever got on stabilizing my 5th is a bottle jack under the frame next to the wheels on each side. Basically, stop the fiver's suspension from being suspension when you're living in it. Two bottle jacks at Harbor Freight were about $15/each if I remember right. The difference is very noticeable and the price is right.

I posted the fact that I was giving it away on here.... I shipped it to the guy.. i think it was gone the next day

I too added JT Strongarms and had no reason to drag that around...

Now I have the 6 point leveling system and really love it

I used one for one season. Set it out in front of the 5er at an RV park with $40 sign on it and sold in an hour. JT Strongarms are far better for us.
