Support jacks/base?

Hey everyone I have a 28BHS hideout. I'm looking to park permanently. I've seen some trailers with what looks like a base/foundation around them usually looks like wood and I have no idea what that's called when googling. If anyone has any idea what those are called I'd appreciate the info.

I'm also wondering what kind of extra support Jack's I could/should get for something that is going to be used often but not moved much.

Any info or ideas help! Thanks everyone!

The first statement is, "It's going to be parked permanently" then the last statement is, "but not moved much"...

If it's going to be parked permanently, put it on concrete pillars (Lowe's or HD) and permanently skirt it with plastic "mobile home skirting"...

If it's "not moved much" then consider buying a set of adjustable RV "screw jacks" and supplement the existing stabilizers, keep the tires covered and aired up to maximum recommended pressure. Develop a temporary skirting, something like vinyl tarp material that snaps onto the J-wrap and is held in place with sand bags or other weights so it won't blow with the wind.

Sorry about that was writing at like 5am.

Once its moved 10 ft from where it's at now it wont be moved unless it needs to go in for some major repair work or something along those lines.

With the pillars do you have any advice on placement? I've heard people say putting jacks/supports in the wrong areas could cause damage if ur main front jack goes out?

RV screw jacks are cheap and come in 4 packs I believe. Buy 2 and space them out evenly on both frames and you shouldnít have any problems.
