Steady Feet Pads

Recommended Posts

Hi

Anyone have experience with ‘Milenco Stacka corner feet’ & ‘Stacka Jacka pads’.

Do they fit heavy duty steadies. Or is there something else on the market.

I have the round ones by Milenco, but I am thinking, if I make the decision to change vans, whats the best?

We have the milenco stacka jack pads and blocks. Our van has heavy duty legs, and they fit fine.  

It can be a bit fiddly lining up the tongues and slots, but no real issue.  

We have used them for some years and found them invaluable when you need them.  

I carry 2 sets (4 blocks per set) and find this is usually enough

I made Styrofoam blocks, lightweight and with a big footprint

Just done a search on the net and for 8,  200mm x 200mm x 75mm is £24. 99. Ok if you have some hanging about, but I don't.

Celotex or Kingspan works almost as well and most builders will be glad to get rid of the offcuts rather than fill the skips, 

I got my styrofoam from a lorry driver who wanted to get rid of it, used as packing sheets.

Good tips.

 

We carry around 6 or 7 solid wood blocks. It would be good to regain some payload.

 

Is it the kingspan foil backed stuff? I wasn't sure how strong that would be.

Its the same but its improved by wrapping it in duct tape, I was going to try those microlite building blocks but the styrofoam was easier to work with and it was free.

I am a wooden block man too but have noticed an increase in styroblocks being used. ..as Paul B says, it's free.

We have a pack of the stackapads lying in our garage as cannot be used with the E&P system.   They were really great to use on our previous caravan.
