Stabilizer Systems

Researching stabilizer systems. I have looked at Steady Fast and JT Strongarm. What do y'all think about the stabilizers on the market and do you have a favorite?

Steady Fast is supposed to be the gold standard.

Or if you can afford about $3K, put in a Lippert self leveling system. After getting a Toyhauler with the system...will never own another that doesn't have it.

Just sayin'

That would be the ultimate; however, I have to live in reality.

I own the JT Strongarm version that I installed on our trailer late last season. Has made a significant difference.

Well y'all, we bit the bullet and got a stabilizer kit. We went with the JT's Strongarm Stabilization System. Haven't installed just yet, but should have it on before the end of the month.

It's not hard... I would suggest using a corded drill instead of a cordless drill since you will be doing some serious drilling into the steel framework under the trailer. That is unless you have a seriously powerful cordless drill.

Appreciate the advice. I've been checking out youtube. Looks fairly straight forward.
