Just an update to my purchase...I got to have a nice chat with the previous (and only) owner of my Scamp and got a good health report on the unit

Everyone have a grand 3-day weekend (even you folks who have perpetual weekends)

That's good news Bill. If you only have half as much fun with your Scamp as we are; you'll have plenty of "grand weekends" yourself. Wish you nothing but the best. Don't forget to send us pictures.

Stabilizer jacks are sometimes called "stab jacks" for short. When camping alone, I rarely bother using them. They are indispensable when two or more people camp, because every time one person moves around in the trailer, the other people feel the trailer bouncing. But the person moving around doesn't feel much trailer movement, so it isn't bothersome.

You know how can use something.. and it works as designed but you still despise it? Those dang stab jacks were on my hate-to-use list. After about the third time out I figured I should wear disposable gloves because they were so full of dirt/grime and road rash I had to thoroughly wash my hands before I could do anything else. No wonder people figure out different methods to accomplish the same thing. I couldn't wait to unbolt those dang things and throw them away. AND YES, they did get washed, but it didn't help a whole lot when traveling in the rain. Obviously YMMV

I'm using the P-2 with a Subaru Outback which pulls 2700 lbs but requires brakes above 1000. Purchased online (e-trailer) and had a local truck shop install. I have no previous experience with them, but it's dead simple to adjust and the car & trailer stops about as easily as the car does without a trailer. Money well spent IMHO.
