Works great. We also use them to stabilize the camper when removing or loading it in windy/gusty conditions by locking them in or removing them as you go through the process. Makes it much safer/ less risky.

We usually will lower the camper all the way down even with the StableCampers, but it's far more stable even lowered with them than lowered without them.

Jshupe, not to change the subject but unless I missed it, you should post in a new thread about your solar panel layout.

It's mentioned in this build thread, but I stopped posting in the thread after a while. Didn't seem to have much interest.

The rack adds about 1" to the total height, with the AC unit tucked up between the rails -- we've put about 9K miles on the camper since adding it, without issue. It used to be a couple inches higher but I reworked it to hover just over the AC unit, to make up for the height gain I'll get from a flatbed I'm having built.

It has 5x360W REC Alpha panels for 1800W total. They're wired in series into a Victron 250/60 controller with a 11.8kWh 48V bank.

I just installed my Stablecamper rods this week and it certainly helps. They take out most of the wobble. I would spend the money again.

Thanks MORSNOW Makes perfect sense now,..but I don't have that feature with our AF811,..even though it is the same manufacturer. Thanks for the input.
I wonder how long it will be before manufacturers start making campers & jacks that will ALLOW the bottom of the camper to actually make contact with terraferma to alleviate any sway at all. Would solve a lot of issues. ie; no more stairs needed,just walk right in,...until you load it back on the truck.

Made in Sandy, Oregon. The stabilizers work as advertised and its one of the best things I have bought for the camper yet.

Thanks folks. I just pulled the trigger yesterday. Could be a 1 - 2 month wait for delivery though.

Got it all installed & just spent two weeks in it,....off truck.       What an amazing difference.       Not perfect,......but very darn close.      Easy install too.

My camper when off the truck has always been lowered to where it is less than a foot above the ground and no chance of flexing of the legs. There is an assumption that the extra bracing is going to be attached to a solid part of the camper and often this will not be the case.

A couple 4’ 4x4s and a set of jack stands will make a camper way more solid and secure than these jack braces ever can, for way less money and no waiting.
