Jack stands for 28' Argosy

Can anyone out there more knowledgable than I recommend a make and model of Jack Stand for a 1976 28' Argosy. I only use it a few times a year and want to keep the weight off the tires when it's sitting for long periods of time. If you can also advise how many to buy and where to place them I would be very appreciative.

Regardless if you actually use the trailer, it's a good idea to hitch it up and pull it every once in a while. Not that it makes much of a difference to the trailer, but it reminds you how well they tow and motivates you to go camping more often!

And gives the torsion axle a lil work out so as not to solidify the rubber.

Hi, I would buy four jack stands. I would put one on each axle mounting bracket, in between the wheels. I would put the other two under the rear frame, just in front of the bumper. The two on the axle mounting brackets and the tongue jack will hold it in place the two under the frame rails by the rear bumper are just for added safety. When working on my brakes, I had the jack stands under the rear frame rail, with about a 1/4" gap. No pressure on the frame unless needed.
