I’m helping a friend work on an older camper with no stabilizers.  Does anyone where we can buy some after market ones and the different options available?  Scissor, etc.

I put these on last year, picked them up locally at Media Camping center, cost a little more but an easy addition just six holes and the included self tapping screws

I added the BAL crank downs as well, they work great.  Atwood has ratchet stabilizers as well. I had them on my old Coleman the only problem with these are they never seem to set where you need them.

You can also go the cheap route and get some of these:

I also have the BAL stabilizers.  The PO installed them and it makes my life so much easier.

I am thinking about adding the BAL crank downs to the front of the Starcraft this year. i think it will really help with some of the door problems I had in the past. Plus she shakes something fierce with just the rear stabs on her.

The Atwood stabs, or something very similar, are what Apaches came with.  They suck.  At least at this age they do.  I had them on my 78 Apache Ranger.  It would have been one of the first things to have gotten changed.

Amazon.com you can buy them at reasonable price. The scissor jacks work good… but remember they are only for stabilizing. Even if they are rated to lift more wt. than your PUP is, it could twist the frame if all the weight is on the corners… then door or roof may not install or close properly.
