With my SnapPads installed, I have ~144 square inches on the ground per Leveler for a pretty stable foot print when leveled.

If I was in a space where there was a significant incline one way or another, I would be repositioning or moving to another space if my jacks had to be extended to the max to deal with it.

Current I am on a fairly level space but my front wheels are just barely off the ground. I can guarantee I have as solid foothold on thee ground as a result of the SnapPads being used as I would if the tires where carrying all of the load.
There may be an unfair assumption that you can simply move to another space. The place I'm staying is booked solid today through the weekend and I MUST remain here to receive a very important delivery on Monday or I would be on my way.

Haven't you ever seen a video of a strong gust of wind toppling a tractor-trailer?
One of our rigs would be child's play; for those winds...

So my luck would be someone would hit the switches and we would look like a low rider from a snoop dog video.
When it comes to your kids, you need to take a hint
But I bet it would look cool as a low rider.

I had the front wheels about a foot off the ground while driveway camping once. We only slept there one night, thankfully. Every little squeak and slight movement woke me up. Very stressful but nothing broke. I made sure the rear wheels were chocked tight that night.

Maybe he is running it on levelers off the ground to improve his fuel mileage. :-)

As he blasts down the track at 0mph pulling a 0.000 time slip.
