      I don’t trust using my off loaded camper, while supported only by corner jacks. Was thinking about setting camper on 3/4″ plywood while traveling on the P/U. Then using this ply/board with 4 screw jacks and cross beams to support camper floor when offloaded. Regretfully this will add significantly to my weight. I figure no need to reinvent this wheel if you and your readers already have suggestions that work. If this was already covered please point me in the right direction.
      PS: Being a newbie to this I have enjoyed and learned much from your site. Thanks for your efforts.

      You could try cutting that plywood so that it forms an X shape, this will eliminate the screw jacks and taking up less space.

      With an older camper, I felt the same way. I had 2 pieces of 3/4″ with 2 barn door hinges joining one side of the pieces with a chain between the upside down V shape to keep the distance between the wood even and restrained. 4 of them weighed about 40 lbs. and were fairly compact with the 2 pieces folded together. The wider the wood, the less right to left wiggle with the camper on them.

      My camper does not go all the way down either.About one foot shy
      What I have done on the drive way was use many plastic milk creates under a sheet of plywood . I guess for transporting I would store them in the bath room.
