That's a good thought. I hadn't thought of that.
Being unable to climb a tree stand, that would
work for me...........LOL

Setup in video: Kinda silly. Made for fun (not use) since the scissor jack looks to be taking up the entire interior space of the trailer.

Lowering RVs: It's to make them easier to get into and out of combined with an auto-leveling. For someone with mobility problems, having a big RV with the floor a good 4 4-5 feet off the ground, having the RV lower down to eliminate 3 or 4 steps is a big help to them -- possibly making it actually possible for them to do it.

Most of the fiberglass trailers sit so low already that there isn't much point. Someone with mobility problems can probably take that little half-step up without much problem.

I like! Replace the hand crank with a 12 volt motor and you have it. Not a bad price to replace everything below the FG.

I could see a point to adjusting the height if it could drive at different heights. Normal height for going down good paved roads with less wind resistance, some macho ground clearance for the FS roads, then flip down levelers and lower to nice step height someplace deep in the boondocks.
