Steady Fast System

I recently brought home a 2012 cougar 5th wheel trailer. That week I installed a Steady Fast system - definitely a must have.

Also one of the teflon rings for the pin box.

Now get out and enjoy it...

How did you install the Steady Fast system with your sliding bike /cargo slide on back?

Rear Steady Fast

Had to weld to rear bracket. Not a big deal.

Was it just a spot weld or did you have to brace it additionally?

Smile Steady Fast System

I installed our Steady Fast System by bolting the hardware to the frame by drilling the holes in the "I" beams. The bit given in the kit IS really sharp and made the job easier.
I use two 'hand-crank stabilizers' on each side of the trailer for added stability since the "scissor" type stabilizers are low to the ground in the front on most campsites.

I am thinking about getting a Trypod for mine, have you ever used one? and is the Steady Fast system that much better?

I would love to see some pictures. We are thinking of installing them on our 5er sounds like its worth every penny. Did you install the extra foot in the front to have a matching pair?

smabernethy, Howdy;

Nice pix, and I kinda hate to ask, but I will...
Could ya crawl around a bit and get some close-ups of the
attaching points, and give a brief description of what and how ya did it.

Looks like a fantastic job ya did... would like to duplicate it ...
when I can afford it.
Thanks,

hankaye

I took some pictures of mine welded on. I don't claim to be a welder but they hold. The rear one is welded to bottom of rear bumper slide rail, the front ones bolt into trailer frame with self tapping bolts.(I see the bolts need to be tightened)

The SteadyFast system really does work!

I installed the SteadyFast system on our 2011 36' Raptor 5'er and can not be happier. No welding for me, I simply drilled the needed holes using the supplied bit.

Two weeks ago we were finishing up a weeks vacation in Sedona, AZ with our last evening stay in Williams, AZ That last nights stay was to say the least, extremely windy. After settling in and watching some TV I realized the coach was rocking. Duh! I forgot to tighten the three locking clamp handles. What a difference it made once the handles were tightened.

Before we installed the SteadyFast we used an aluminum tripod under the king pin. Sold it on Craig's List! I also decided to spend a bit more and bought a couple more of the foot plates just to keep things looking uniform.

For us the SteadyFast system was a good investment.
