'97 Safari 25' Leveling jacks

I recently purchased a 1997 model 25' Safari and I love it! I have question about the leveling jacks on this model. It only has 2, which are located on the rear. From what I can tell it has never had 2 for the front, which seems a little odd to me. Do any other folks own a model similiar to this that don't have 2 front leveling jacks? All in all trailer is fairly stable, I'm sure I could add a couple. I would think if they were needed, Airstream would have had them on the trailer. (Previously owned an 1978 model 23' Safari had 4 leveling jacks, all other airstreams I have seen have 4 jacks). I guess my questions would be.
1) Do others of you own similiar year models that only have 2 leveling jacks?
2) Do you believe they are needed on the front? If so, any advice on
installing them? It doesn't look like there is a good place to put them?

Thank you! Mark

Safari 25 ft. stabilizing jacks

Mark -
I also have a 25 ft. Safari. It's a 1999. It has two small stabilizing jacks in the back. I find it bounces around too much for my taste. I plan to replace the rear stabilizers with larger BAL ones and add them to the front. I still haven't figured out yet where to mount the front ones.

I am not happy with the stability of mine either with the 2 on the back and the tongue jack only. It moves even with our daughter walking inside by herself
(- 100lbs). It looks as if I will have to add a couple to the front of the trailer.
