Leveling Airstream for Shell off

I know I have to level my 64 Overlander before I take the shell off, my question is how? In my research I have heard people say the it needs to be supported in 8 places. Which places? Do I use jack stands or is there other ways? Does the ground have to be level? Thanks for your help.

At lest 4 points are probably needed. Use the main frame rails as jacking points. Thats the safest but other points could probably be used with a bare frame/floor as the weight is not so great. You can fix them on jack stands but will need to use some sort of jacking to bring the frame level, front to back ,side to side. It does sag and flex. You can use as many points as you need to get the floor to complete level. I used a long level. Move it all over the trailer length and bring the floor/frame to level. I used mostly scissor jacks to bring mine to level. Ed
