    I have bought a set of short "drop down legs" from another funsters. They look perfect and if I am right, they fit at the very back of the chassis to existing holes, but I expected them to be a little closer to the axle? Can anyone show me how theirs are fitted? I can't find any help on the internet, if nothing on this forum I will try calling alko as bailey seem useless for help.
    Thanks anyway!

    I fitted them to my last van, 2012 740SE. The legs were close to the end of the chassis. When they are offered up to the chassis it is more obvious where they go.

    Well I fitted them, or one at least!

    When I went to fit second, Bailey in all their wisdom, had used one of the bolt holes in the chassis, reserved for the alko legs, to pass the gas pipe for the boiler through!

    My van went to my service centre for warranty work and they rerouted pipe and fitted second leg for me!

    Now waiting to see how they work when moving around in van!

    No reason why they shouldn't work at the very back end......That's where caravan manufacturers fit them and they don't have an axle relatively close by to help stabilise the van.

    Yes, it was worth it. Not perfect but the second hand legs only cost 100 quid so well worth it.
