Stability is a weight distribution issue with a single axle, get it right and there is no problem. They back up easier and are easier on fuel consumption. In many years of using them, never had a blowout. Did have a tire pick up a large screw but you know when the tire starts losing air and have time to get over safely. Those who detract from their use are the same ones who will tell you to get a big diesel to pull your Bambi.

Well that's a new one, more stable without stabilizers down. They are all stable but the stabilizers can prevent structural stress to the frame and outriggers.
