    For those who have invested heavily in hydraulic jacks then rather than lumps of wood these Outrigger pads https://www.outriggerpads.co.uk/product-category/motorhome-caravan-pads/ might be a good, tough, waterproof, smart accessory option?
    They were launched at the February NEC Show (by a company who already make these for commercial equipment) in reply to a demand from the motorhome & caravan sector. On the stand all types (flat, square indent & round indent) were selling for £60 a set of 4 but currently a lot more (plus VAT) on their website. Have emailed them today (finally catching up after bad colds :() to find out what deal they can offer for Fun & RVOC members so will update here once we get a reply.

    Have heard back that they are holding the Show launch price of £60 for a set of 4 (size 300X300X25) until 31st May (y) - need to order over the phone on 01952 671403 as below & quote code MHC8102
    Don't know how much p&p yet (substantial set so probably won't be cheap) but will ask for best price & update here once they reply.

    Well done, thanks for that. (y)

    Do you know if they are stackable ie. will they lock together without sliding to give a bit of extra height?

    Even milk bottles are stackable :D

    Looks like they are flat backed so not locking together.

    Usual price is £18 each

    No think they would slide in their current form but have suggested some kind of stacking system locking into indents on the pads & as this is a new product they are open to design changes.

    Yes they were close on £100 inc VAT before. Very strong - bit heavy.

    Not sure they are going to be a big advantage for us.
    The pads are 300mm square and the round feet on our E&P jacks are 230mm.
    Don't think the extra few cm will spread the load much more.
    The next size up are quite a bit more expensive. Might just cut up a plank and make some rope handles.

    Richard.
