The 6 point seems fine with us. Used a tripod on our Everest, helped a little. There is a thread that folks are using a sway bar and stuff in the rear to help.

Don't think a King Pin Stabilizer would do much with the TrailAir Pin unless you let all the air out of the Bag.

I don't think they do much anyway - used mine about twice 10 years ago and gave it away.

I have one of those heavy beast in the garage - but it's not shippable

I too saw limited help from them given that it would only help support stuff in front of the front jacks which is the closet are on ours.

I bought one for our first 5th wheel. I used it three or four times and IMO, it didn't do much with getting rid of any movement.

Had one once. Pretty much a waste of money.

We used a BAL adjustable King Pin tripod. Worked on our previous SOB pretty well. Haven't tried it on our Redwood. Pretty stable up front with the 6 point hydraulic auto level. Our problem was the rear end sway from the 13 feet hanging in the back. Installed Lippert rear electric Jacks and 95+ % of that problem went away. The 1 1/2 year old tripod is for sale if you want it. Let me know. Can take pics and get model number. Used maybe a dozen times. Like new

I had one and gave it away. Little effect and too heavy to haul around.

If you want to add stability, put the stabilizers on the rear just ahead of the trailer hitch. Took out 95% of all the movement.
I used the manual ones rather than the electric.
