As I have said before because we sit for 6 months each winter we have the JT's and before installing them we had scrissor jacks installed just in front of the front tires. Plus the wind is not an issue for us.

I used the aluminum telescoping legs from a 5K capacity OSHA deadman tripod and built a head that fits snuggly around the king pin. I put most of the front weight of the trailer on the tripod and not so much weight on the front legs. My rear stabilizers are very sturdy and the combination of everything makes my trailer rock solid. Craig

We had a tripod and it worked so-so. Better than not having anything. what really helped the most is the JT Strongarms I installed. Since I installed them I ditched the tripod stand.
