Stock jack taking up a bit of weight on drivers side, and scissor jack for rear passenger side ( to clear sliding door on rear jack point) stiffens things up nicely.

Even one jack helps things.

Hard to compose message without double entendres.

on the other hand, be sure that many people are probably just happy to hear that some are having fun.
No worries, i believe.

I use two stock jacks. Put them on the rear jack points, both sides, and take up about and inch or two of height. Stabilizes things nicely. YMMV.... Wink

An irregular beat won't set up a rocking motion. Try it .. she'll appreciate the creativity.

Those squeaking noises and rhythmic rocking motions are the key to discouraging would be knockers.
Best not to mitigate them in any way.

You need to get one of them 1970's bumper stickers that say.... "If the van's a rockin' don't bother knocking."

goes along with them other old stickers that said..." hitch hikers, pay with grass, gas, or ass, no one rides for free."

the jack stand idea is good.

Pics or it didn't happen!


ummm... my car hauler has scissor jacks on the rear corners to stabilize it.

The trick is to avoid the van's resonant frequency.

If you're doing it right there will be no doubt whats goin on in the shaggin' vanagin' anyways.

Yes, this is the only known STD to end all chances of relations. HIV, syph, clap, herp, hep.....all of those spread like wildfire but children are the only self defeating std known to man.

I just set the E-Brake Wink Cool Without it set, and set tight, the kids wake right up. It has yet to happen as I always set the brake.

But, in all seriousness, do what you gonna do....to hell with the tent campers Twisted Evil
Let them be Jelly!

maybe you can change the axis at which you are exerting force? Also, getting busy closer to the horizontal balance plane of your van will decrease the amount of leverage you have over the springs (take it to the lower bed or better yet the floor!

OR, let the other campers eat cake!!
