Catch 22?

I get the feeling that jacking a 22' CCD is a Catch-22 -- -- all the correct places are inconveniently inaccessible with conventional garage jacks.

Andy, if I understand correctly, there is not enough space to accommodate the floor jack on the mounting 'plate' -- possibly a bottle jack would fit, but it would be tight and certainly not as secure nor convenient as it should be.

Unfortunately, that's about the way it is.

You can use a bottle jack, but, be careful.

Glad we finally agreed on how to jack up an Airstream..

I think.

Well, it's clear, isn't it?

You jack it on the diamond spots like in the manual from the factory that made it.

No, you jack on the axle mounting plate.

Or not.

Maybe we should start a poll.
