Blocks

Looks great, very easy to use, but I have my home made ones at present, 18" square blocks, which also can be used to change a wheel.

On very soft ground I think I like my large blocks, but for good parking spots, at about $80.00 for a pair, this may be nice if two folks are setting up the trailer.

Awesome thank you! I have a set of lego style blocks from my last rv, although our bus was heavy enough to totally squish a few, the remainder I have can be some back up.

Wonder if you can buy these at camping world??

I believe you can. I got mine from Amazon, Prime free shipping and no sales tax. They had the best price that I could find.

Thumbs up Just buy them already

A lot of us are using them. Worth every penny, don't be a cheapo, you bought an Airstream. I would get them from Amazon, better priced than Camping World.

I even threw away my old brittle yellow lynx blocks and picked up two packages of Andresens' tough pads. Just because. (matching)

Very happy with our purchase. I spent the last two weeks at Highland Haven Airstream park in Virginia, and they had a rally going on the last week we where there. A part of me snickered while I watched people back up, pull forward add a block, back up, pull forward, ad a block. It takes my wife and me literally a minute to level the Airstream with the Andersens.

Not getting them is just a hassle.

I use a couple of heavy generic plastic chocks. No idea of the brand. They work fine.

Bold Adventure.
I may be wrong. With mine I've been putting the smaller red chalk under the curved portion for support. I think as a whole there worth the money and seem bomb proof.

You need one Andersen Leveler per axle.

Work great. One per axle. Discussed on multiple threads in the past. Only thing I don't like is that on soft ground they tend to sink a bit more than legos so I simply take that into account when setting up. I put an electronic level on the bottom of the front window when positioning and I can see it turn green in the rear view mirror. Stop, chock and put on the wheel BAL Chocks.

Electronic Level http://www.etrailer.com/Tools/Lipper...FZAAaQodQ6kA5A

Also not a bad idea to set the parking brake when you get the trailer up on the Andersens until you get it blocked and chocked. Then got to neutral, press the regular brake pedal and release the parking brake. That will release any tension you have on the hitch.

You can place them to back on to or in front to pull forward onto them. Pulling forward works better for me since I have a ProPride. When I get ready to leave most of the time I slowly pull forward, what the side mirror and when I see the trailer rise and then drop, stop and go pick them up. Just don't do it fast and go to far forward.

Works great with my Classic.
