    With my van I think the only safe place to put them would be under the chassis. Does the occasional rocking really bother you so much?:imoutahere:

    Yes I guess they would go under the chassis. Bother me that much? ...not that much. Just interested.

    Cheers

    Bought 4 in a pack, carry 2. I've used the on fields where 1 corner of the van is a bit unsteady. They start off quite high, so make sure you have clearence if you are going to use them when fairly level.
    If the back end of the van is a bit 'soft' I use the kit Fiat supplied....the scissor jack... keeps the back steady. Well you wouldn't use it for changing a wheel!

    I got a couple a few years ago off ebay for a tenner from a fellow motorhomer who had bought 4 and only needed the two. The tow bar proved to be the easiest place for them and they work a treat. Prior to that, because the habitation door is right behind the rear spring, everytime one of of us went outside the other had their beer or wine spilt :giggler:.

    We had a Mercedes based Rapido and the suspension was really quite soft so any movement inside the van could cause sea sickness as could high winds or passing trucks when parked in a layby.
    Drop,down legs solved all those problems

    Bought a set at the NEC. Noticed lots of vans on show stabilised with these. Bought the cheaper plastic ones that seem very strong
