A crooked motorhome always puts a damper on your travels. That’s not only true for the aching muscles in your neck and back muscles, but also for the constant shifting forces that make city driving a white-knuckle experience.
If you own a motorhome, you know the woes of trying to take that gentle curve on the freeways or back roads.
And if you’ve ever tried to back up a camper you know that the potential for disaster is huge — it just goes to show that when you are looking for an RV stabilizer you have to consider more than just the cost of the stabilizer.
Fortunately, the choices are not limited in the least. In fact, you can choose an RV stabilizer that will also lend extra benefits, such as improving fuel efficiency and reducing vibrations.
The choices are many, and the right choice is unique to each driver. Wether you are looking to save your expensive RV from it’s tendency to get knocked about by the wind in transit. Or you want the friction of the RV awning frames and ladders to be reduced, so you lose less RV awning fabric, RV stabilizers come in many shapes and prices.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do I stabilize my RV?
Here are some products that I’ve found useful in stabilizing my RV. I’ve tried everything from the low-tech ramp or leveling blocks (cumbersome, takes up a lot of room) to the more complex systems like the popular EZ-Levelers that use air bubbles to level the RV. I’ve found that while these systems are great for leveling a slightly unlevel RV, they have an unfortunate tendency to leak air, especially when attempting to level a slightly unlevel RV.
What is the best fifth wheel stabilizer?
A fifth wheel stabilizer is a great upgrade for your RV if you travel on bumpy roads a lot. Most RVs are designed to be fairly level at highway speeds, but when you are traveling on dirt and bumpy roads, the back end sways a lot.
That makes it difficult to level the RV or trailer. As a result, you lose valuable cargo space as your bags and boxes slide around inside.
The stabilizer is a hydraulic hanger on wheels that attaches in place of your two tag (or landing) legs. It gives you stability at speeds as low as ten miles per hour and makes the trailer more level at rest.
A stabilizer at rest is also a lot easier to level.
How do I stop my camper from shaking?
If your camper is equipped with stabilizer jacks, then check the pressure of the air in the system. This will isolate most small movement, allowing the motorized stabilizers to do the rest. However, if your rv is not equipped with air stabilizer jacks, you can adjust the height of the stabilizers to match the height of your rv. This will help to keep your camper level. Note that lifting the tongue of a trailer will cause the trailer to list (lean) to one side, so keep your tongue jack (part of the trailer frame) down and weight your trailer to eliminate undue stress on the vehicle and tongue jack.
How do RV stabilizers work?
An RV stabilizer jack does a few things. First, it stabilizes the RV when it is parked. It does this by raising the coach so the weight is distributed evenly across all of the jacks. Secondly, it keeps the jacks from digging into the ground or sliding out of place while the RV is in motion.
With an RV stabilizer jack, the RV jacks are raised just a few degrees higher than the road surface. This simple adjustment increases the area of support for the RV. Without it, the RV jacks will strike the road and cause the RV body to either lean or slide left or right.
These stabilizer jacks can also be used to compensate for a load in the RV. If there is too much load in the front of the RV, the stabilizer jack will lift the lower end off the ground so the weight is better distributed. The greater the weight in the rear, the higher the stabilizer jack will be raised.
