I park my camper on dirt driveway and would I not put additional support in front, who knows how it would look after heavy rain since rear legs sunk 6".
So don't take any chances and put big wood planks under the feet.
You can buy grass-like carpet to camouflage it and refrigerator [emoticon]


Sounds prepper stealthy, a camo camper in the yard. Ultimate bug out shelter or a place to get away from mama.

A gravel pad. Cheap and easy to install or remove if necessary.

Wood blocks under the jacks and a fancy looking cover.

Take pressure treated 2x4 and cut them to be long enough for your jack pad. Drill a couple of holes edge to edge. Now drill the hole oversize about half way through so that the head is buried in the center. Assemble with construction adhesive and exterior grade screws.

Make at LEAST 2 for each jack, because I guarantee they will sink. The larger they are, the less they will sink.

Or put a Stable-Lift on the camper. Then, zero problems like these! [emoticon]

I did it once for a few months until I could pour a concrete pad. I did use 2x6 boards under each jack that helped. I did have an issue with the front truck tires tearing up some grass as I manuevered the truck to line up with the camper.

Parking on grass- just keep an eye on possible mouse invasion, especially as the weather cools down.

By the way, they can jump. A mouse fell into one of our empty 30 gallon totes and it could almost jump back out.

Rubber stall mats. They won't sink like 2x4 fours or be hard to aim for and get up on. Pull right on the stall mat plenty of room for placement.

Find them at Tractor Supply or local feed stores.

so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
