Our static has stickers on the chassis to show the anchor and support points.  On ours (ABI St David, 36 x 12 ft, single axle), the wheels are supported off the ground (on blocks, topped with wood to protect the chassis), there are 4 anchor points (towards each corner) which are chained to the anchor points in the concrete pad, and we also have 8 axle stands positioned at the support points marked on the chassis.  We also have the corner steadies down, but they are just steadies - the weight is actually on the blocks and axle stands.

Is your caravan going on a 'proper' site - if so, will they not site and anchor it for you?

Hi, ours is completely supported on concrete blocks, the type you would use when building a concrete block wall and then 'topped off' with small wooden packings. we have no axle stands, steadies etc.

our deck is supported by 'wind up/down' supports which takes out any variances of the ground level - these are placed directly onto the earth - as they can be adjusted if required and have large diameter plastic feet they dont really need to be on paving slabs, but belt and braces might suggest otherwise?

our van is not anchored down, but then again its not 'exposed' as some sites are, the other issue is that the site requires them to be able to moved quickly and not installed as permanant structures, so dont actually allow them to be anchored down!!!
