I have a Bailey Autograph 740, and suffer from the old sea legs when the husband is moving about, usually when showering. Therefore axle stands to reduce the movement. Where best to locate them? Thinking chassis, as on the corners like a caravan could damage the floor of MH. Any suggestions and what height of stand best?

id have thought, a lengthy van like this with a long overhang on an Al-Ko chassis will probably have rear corner steadies....have you checked?

if not, im sure they could be fitted, no need for axle stands...

There are rear wind down stabilisers available for the Alko chassis. Check the fixing holes don’t have any wires through them as they would need re-routing. The Alko stabilisers are around £500 if I recall correctly. So being a Yorkshireman I went for the Fiamma axle stands, £40 for a set of four and place two at the rear under the Alko chassis. They are light and don’t take up too much room. Bit of a fuss kneeling at the back and fixing them in place. I make sure my wife is not in the rear when putting in place and removing.
