We would like to add stabilizer jacks to the front of our new Casita.  We have been told this can be done.  We would like to know how others have done this.  Any help would be appreciated .

I added a 1/4 inch by 2 inch piece of flat steel across the front of the frame and bolted 2 BAL jacks onto that. Casita frame geometry isn't very well suited to adding them without the extra mounting space.

Thanks Charlie Y.  We may go that route, it sounds lie the easiest way to go. Now Bernie is working on trying to mount a 4" box pipe under the camper to hold the sewer hose instead of using the bumper one on the back.

@Bernie: Large ZIP TIES. Great for securing storage tubes for sewer hose.
