Default Levelling Jacks

I am considering getting something like these for my Roadtrek (Sprinter). Been using the "Legos" and not really happy with getting it right. Also had them fly out when trying to ascend or descend. I think they will function better as additional lift blocks under stationary jacks.

These scissor jacks would be permanently mounted underneath and driven up or down with a hand drill.

Any experience with these? Recommendation for fastening locations on a sprinter?

I know these cannot "lift" the RV off the ground.

Personnaly, I like the
inflatable levelers. Another option for you to consider.

I have the Quadra Big Foot Leveling System, and it is junk. Have to put leveling pads on the ground for them to reach and try to level.

Have you looked for a place to mount them? It might not be as easy as you think.
I see those more as stabilizers than lifting jacks, although they will certainly do some leveling.
My current van doesn't seem to rock as much as the ones i had when I was young so I haven't looked into them.

Those are stabilizing jacks. You might be able to raise the van an inch or so before reaching the jackís weight limit, but thatís hardly worth the trouble.

The other issue is a lifting point on the van body. Study the MB manual for approved lifting points and you will see there are only four (as I recall). They are not easy to access.
