How to level 1957 22'

It's me again. I'm planning on keeping her on a driveway that has a slight incline. What's the best way of doing this? It has an icebox instead of a refrigerator (cute, but not sure if that'll be enough) so at least I don't have to worry about it catching on fire.

I also need to add that I've never had an Airstream, any other RV and am pretty green when it comes to mechanical work. I'm going to want to know so much!

Anything is much appreciated!

P.S.
A little off topic, but does anyone know what difference between 13 and 7 panels is?

Airstreams went from 13 panels to 7 panels in 1957. Google Vintage Airstream Photo Archives and enjoy the reading. A good visual of changes over the years. Good luck, Bubba

For one thing, there are a lot fewer seams to leak. The current stretch formed caps don’t look as iconic as the many riveted segments, but there is a lot less to get leaky this way.

Gotta admire the work and craftsmanship it took to make the 7 and 13 segment ends, though.
