If they don't come with the round tilting discs on the legs, what's there when delivered?

Just the legs...only puts about 4" x 1/2" on the ground.
The base pads for the stabs on the 21 are square.

Feed the included bolt through the flanges on the pads and the tube on the end of the stabilizer leg and snug up the included nylock nut... Very easy.
I don't know why BAL ships the stabilizers without them.

Mine really make a difference. Four for $20. We like our bars as we'll on the smaller trailer. See them here.

Tim, do you have the foam underneath? Wondering if you had to deal with it to get to the frame for the stabilizer install.

Don't have the foam yet. The bar mounts on the bottom of the long frame rail. I don't remember seeing that part of the frame covered on trailers with foam. Since it is the part of the frame that would be used to jack the trailer, I would hope it isn't covered plus it is really close to back of the wheel.

These pads eliminate the need for those plastic blocks everyone uses. They should not interfere with the use of the stabilizers as they are attached to the stabilizer feet. That said, the foam package encapsulates the frame and stabilizers except for the movable part, to which these pads are attached.

I have the high lift option on my 17 & found that I have plenty of room to add 4" pads to my stabilizers. I used chunks of 4" cedar fence posts. It saves lots of cranking or leg go blocks...

Padlin,,

On our 21' the jacks mount to a rail. This rail is then attached to the frame. The rail is free of foam to allow the movement of the sissor jacks.

The foam should not interfere with the mounting to the stabilizers.

When I was asking about if the foam got in the way of the stabilizer install, I meant the add ons Tim used, like the Steadyfasts or BAL's. You know, stabilizer bars, as opposed to stabilizers.

Those add on's in that link will not work with the stabilizers, Tim may have had jacks installed. These are used on the large sob's that have a lot of movement.
Using the between the wheel units and your stabilizers, your Escape unit will not move. http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...win-pack/31695

Nope, if I understand what you said. I added the pads to the jack C crank downs and the bars ( from BAL) attach directly. The larger trailers have enough mass but the 15 is so light that we were moving it all over the place. ( when Julie was in the leu she accused me of wiggling the trailer on purpose. )These have solved that problem. Solid as a rock.

I would have used the single axle B@l tire leveler, they work very well with smaller trailers and torsion axle movement while sitting still.
