Oversized landing gear pads

I saw a bunch of rigs at the rally with the large round pads underneath their landing gears. I need together some more of the basic yellow squares I am currently using or buy some of the round pads.

Anyone pointers what exactly they are and where best to be them?

Thanks

Haven't needed larger sizes yet. But do understand the need on sandy and soft soils. Some make their own. Some various types are found here: http://www.outriggerpads.com/ Probably others out there too.

Bryon Vaughan had them on his rig and he sells them at Vaughan's RV in Indianola. His business number is 515-961-6961. I'm getting some from him.

We like them a lot. Not sure who manufactures them but Spader´s RV in South Dakota sold them to us for about $16 per pad.

Had them in their store. Very sturdy pads.

We looked at them but they felt a bit "flimsy" and not worth the money.

But I can be wrong. Not sure about the brand just remember they were about 40 dollars each.

The round one can be hit by a meteorite and price is great.

That's what we were thinking as well but we thought it might help on gravel surfaces. I wish we can order the ones that were pictured earlier since we are in texas and not there. First time we have seen those

I looked at the Hosspads, when I went into a TSC store I saw the same material in larger 4ft by 6ft pads used in horse stalls. I bought a pad on sale $25 dollars cut it into squares using a utility knife drilled a hole on one side to put a piece of rope through and now use those under the plastic pads I had, on gravel. They stop the plastic from breaking and the rope attached make it easy to pull them out. I just throw them in the back of the pickup truck when I hookup as they are heavy enough that they won't fly out.

Couldn't find them listed on either of those dealers sites, guess I'll give them a call. By the way Basil, is that cable to keep someone from stealing your RW?

Yes it is, we connect the RW to our electrical scooter to avoid that someone steals the RV.

Bought a 2x12, cut it into 12" lengths. screwed rubber pads to each side, fastened a rope loop to each one, and make my own. Lot cheaper and seem to hold up better than store bought...
