SteadyFast Stabilizer installed

I just finished up my SteadyFast Stabilizer install. It took me almost exactly 3 hours from start to finish and this thing is AWESOME!!! First, the kit arrived very quickly. I opened it up and was very amazed at the packaging. There was a separate bag of nuts, bolts and washers for every step and each bag was labeled with what they're for and the amount. This kit is not some cheap thin tubing and brackets. It is nice and thick and heavy duty and powder coated. The directions were as easy as you could get with it. I advise anybody to read them over a few times to get familiar with what your about to get into.
Once installed, I had the wife get in the bed while I walked into the camper and walked around while the stabilizers were not engaged and then did it again while they were engaged and she was very impressed. I did the same while she walked in and around and even had here shake around the inside and had to ask her if she was shaking it. It definitely lives up to the claim of getting rid of 90 to 95% of the shake. I'm extremely impressed. The kit was $269 shipped to my door from their site. I will post some pictures tomorrow with some daylight. Got too late today. http://www.steadyfast.com/

I installed mine last august. Very easy to install and what a huge difference. Biggest problem is drilling thru the frame. I ended up using a long 2x6 to work like a drill press.

I was also impressed with the fact that the proprietor even gave his own cell phone number for any questions or concerns. Never heard of that before.

Very happy with mine a year after install. Nice not to wake up to a shake bc the dog rolled over in the middle of the night

We installed the BAL stabilizer arms on both front corners of our Cougar. They made the 5er rock solid. We liked how they work so much that I removed them from the Cougar when we traded and re-installed them on our new rig. The Laredo has the Lippert Ground Control 3.0 but there was still quite a bit of "wiggle" at the landing gear. Rock solid now. Bought them on sale at CW for something like $67 a set.
