I had the BAL leveler and found it was not big enough or heavy duty enough to use with my single axel Airstream or Argosy trailers. I gave it away. Great for a tent trailer though.

Glad yours works for you though Stefrobrts.

I never actually use the Lynx levelers to level the trailer. I put them under the tongue jack and stabilizers when camping on grass or sand.

I guess we must be lucky that it fit ours so well. It can certainly handle our trailer, but at 2500# we're probably lighter than some tent trailers! Our only problem has been taking turns cranking the darn thing up when we're at a site that's way off of level. Makes for tired arms!

Road Rulers link. I meant it was $26 for the shipping and $49 each for the levelers.

Purchased and used the Anderson levelers on my 25' FC on our first trip out, super easy and very effective. Not intended for very steep inclines. Got ours on Amazon as well.

At Andersen's site, you can order direct if you live in the lower 48. . $40/ea and $10 shipping for the pair I purchased.

(No affiliation between Andersen and me, FYI...)

I picked up a set Friday before we headed out of town and tried it out this weekend. My husband was skeptical, but not after I stuck it under the low wheel, had him pull forward until the wheel lifted about four inches and the trailer was level, then stuck the chock under the other end. Then I chocked the opposite wheel as usual, and that was it. Way easier than the old lifter! We got ours for $35 at Curtis trailers in Portland. I was somewhat shocked that it worked on the first try exactly as easy as it looks in the video.

Just got mine in the mail today. Those who have them - the video shows the user pulling the chocks out and driving forward over the highest point.

How can you pull the chocks out? Doesn't the weight of the trailer hold them in?

And if you CAN pull the chocks out, why not back over the lowest height? Seems like less "trauma" to the trailer.

How have you done it and what has been your experience? Can't wait to try them out! :-)

When we were hooking up to leave I could not get the chock out so we towed it forward (slowly) over the bigger piece, it was no problem, just tipped over gently as the trailer rolled forward. I suppose he could have just put a bit or forward pressure, and I could have pulled out the chock, then he could have rolled back a tiny bit and I could have pulled out the front piece.

I really liked the ease of use, but I can't help feeling like I should hang on to my single wheel lift leveler until I've had a few more trips out with the new toy

Thanks - I'm keeping the tire lift as well - I think it serves a different purpose. Can't wait to try the new levelers! Good point about pulling forward to reduce the pressure then back down. I'll try both and see what I think.

Thanks again!

After my one and only time using the Lynx levelers I am ready to by a couple of these. Looks a lot easier/simpler/faster/less steps to git-r-dun.

I just got a pair of the Anderson Levelers for our 25' and tried them this weekend. They didn't work for us.

Probably because we have 16" wheels there isn't enough room between the wheels to insert the leveler. And on the other axle it sank into the ground quite a bit. I've thought of trimming one of them down in length and then it could fit it in. But I'm concerned that when you roll off it (in either direction) the leveler could get caught between the wheels.

For different trailer with more widely spaced axels and on a firm surface I still think they would be OK.
