How to immobilize my Boler

Hello,

I would like to know what would be the best technique to immobilize my Boler 13' once it's "parked". Let it stand on the tongue jack and use 4 by 4's in front and behind the wheels? Use separate stands somewhere else under the frame?

Thanks!

Alexandre

I use 4x4s in front & behind at least one wheel, the tongue jack, and the rear stabilizers. Movement is not an issue with our Egg Camper but our Kodiak jiggles no matter what I do.

Thanks for the advice. I know this is a newbie question, but what exactly are "rear stabilizers"? Cheers,

Alexandre

here are some pictures of rear stabilizers, these are fixed to the trailer and you can also buy portable adjustable units.

Those look really great. I need something like that for my 30' trailer--about 5500 lbs with the boat on it. It sits in one spot 99% of the time. It is a pain to jack it up one a year with concrete and wood blocks.

By the way, I like your profile icon. Nice colors on your egg!

It's for sale, by the way, thanks
