What are your opinions of using a tripod on a new fifth wheel? I have ordered an Alliance Valor 41V15 that comes with a six point stabilizer system. Do you find that the tripod helps with trailer sway?

Cheers,
Fred

Not necessary with the 6 point system.

I had and used one with my old 5er but let it go with it. Our new 5er has the 4 point auto level and don't use one or feel the need for one.

I had one. Does help if you have nothing else. Over time the bit of rocking was less of an issue and the additional set up time was more of an issue. Used it less and less until I let it go.

Pretty much just excess baggage. Had one, don't anymore.

Never Had one
Found Chocking the Wheels (as you Should), and using X Jacks Between the Wheels, Also using Scissor Jacks in the Middle eliminates any Movement.
I have a 2010 Mountaineer 295RK, Mine does not have a 6 Point Leveling, so I made my own.
