Our FF seems very stable but in the past I have used low-cost scissor jacks from Harbor Freight and found them to be effective. I mounted them with bolts to the frame. I also suggest putting a larger 'foot' against the ground rather than just a narrow or small foot. A brick or 4X4 a foot long works great.

Thanks. We have limited experience and aren't sure what would be normally expected. We been putting plastic leveling blocks down, might try wood blocks next time out.

Well my 2010 189FBR feels quite stable when the jacks are down. I think the difference comes down to the length of the trailer and rigidity of the frame. Clearly the flex of the frame will increases the longer it gets. And maybe they are making trailer frames lighter to save weight/cost, hence making a less rigid and more flexable trailer floor. One last thought is that maybe what your feeling is flex in the wood decking and not the frame.

Thanks. Luckily is just something we notice when one of us moves around. If we had kids moving around in there all the time I think it would be annoying.

Just another thought. How much of an angle are your stabilizers at when lowered? If they aren't at much of an angle (meaning close to vertical) when fully extended they won't provide much stability. I know other people on here have posted that their jacks were too short and in some cases didn't reach the ground when fully extended.
