Airstream on the way

We have purchased a 1997 limited 34' Norman Rockwell
It is our plan to park it at our home at least for now.
We have the room but there will be a little downslope side to side
Should I use leveling blocks or should I have it backed in where we want it and jack it up and place the blocks under it.
We don't have a tow vehicle so we will need to keep it where it sits until we get one.
Thanks Mark

I'm pretty new here, although I bought my first travel trailer in 1990... and we bought our AS last May (and we've already dealt with a flat tire). I've (successfully) tried to avoid jacking up my trailers, I feel leveling blocks put less stress on the trailer. I realize our AS's are well built but why risk damaging your trailer (when leveling blocks are so easy to use).

In My Opinion. And it's worth about as much as you paid for it. You only need to worry about it being level if you plan to use it in that parking spot. In my northeast area I might also worry about water settling into a low spot and freezing but I don't think you have that problem. Putting some boards on the low side to bring it close to level is certainly easy and I might be so inclined ( pun intended) but I don't think you need to.
