Anti vibration pads

A friend of mine with a SOB uses anti vibration pads under the stabilizers on his trailer. He swears he can tell the difference using them. Anyone hear have experience using them?

Sounds like they would be more effective in earthquake-prone areas, and campgrounds next to the Interstates, where heavy trucks rumble by all night.

Welcome Aboard!! 🥂👍

Our Classic must have come with vibration protection...we have never vibrated unintentionally.😇

At $145 for 5...I would think twice, unless camping on the Wabash Line.🚂

Maybe buy a sheet of horse trailer/stall rubber floor mat and cut them to fit under you stabilizers. A 5'x7' sheet costs half of what the 5 "anti-vibration" mats would run you. You can turn several friends on to the remainder.

Seems like a good idea. Is the bottom.of the stall mat solid? One thing I dislike about the "Lego" style orange blocks is that they pick up tons of dirt, sand and pebbles.

I believe I have seen anti-vibration mats permanently attached to the feet of stabilizers... creative laziness that also appeals to me.

There was another thread about this a while back.

Seems to me a soft-ish pad would allow movement and defeat the purpose of the stabilizers.
