Not sure what jack stands refers to... those plastic “LEGO” blocks?

No, the kind of stands you use to change a tire at home.


Ah. So “scissor jacks”! I wondered if those would work. Thanks!

Inexpensive jack stands.

If you're in Edmonton, head on over to Princess Auto or Canadian Tire. They will have lots to choose from.

Jack Stands are an economic solution.

A couple of years ago I used 4 on a Scotty. Worked very well.
Lowering the tongue raises the rear of the camper.
Insert jacks under metal and raise em till they are touching or nearly touching.
Raise the crank and it puts weight on the rear jacks.
Put jacks under the front, near the tongue, and lower the crank a little,
and your camper is sitting on 4 jack stands.
No rock and roll when you walk inside.

It's quick and easy to use Jack Stands.
Harbor Freight has em two to a pack. Decent price.

Not sure what flip down jacks look like. Scissor jacks?
