leveling

ok, took our first trip, had a blast, everything was worked fine, I even backed it into the spot ok. Remember I've never towed anything since my radio flyer behind my bicycle. Now, the site was reasonable level, but my stabalizer jacks were fully extended in the back. I know I can get some 2 x 6/s or something, but was hoping there was some cool easy to use product out there I can buy. Any suggestions? Mike

Plastic blocks

What I use is a set of yellow interlocking plastic blocks from Camping World. I also have a few very old orange interlocking blocks from the same source. The blocks come 10 to a set in a plastic carrier. You can stack them vertically under the jacks or overlap them to form a ramp for the tires. I also use them under the tongue jack on soft surfaces.

thanks John, I'll look for those. Interesting, I was just reading your report on Canyon of the Eagles park, and you mention leveling there I believe. I definately want to try that park sounds awesome. Also Lost Maples is on my list. Too bad I have to work all week, camping is calling me. Mike

Cool Bryan, thanks, I'm reading up on leveling now from that link. I'd never ask for directions when traveling, always make the wife ask, but on here it's easy to ask and get good answers. thanks. Mike

I assume you are pulling with a pick-up?

If so, perhaps you have space for a few other items. I bought two 12' X 2" X 12" boards, and cut them into varying lengths. Every where from 1 foot long to 3 feet. I also carry a square-bladed shovel. Many camping lots are soft enough that you can do a little re-leveling without doing anything permanent or destructive to the parking space. I sometimes use the longer boards to pull up on, should the lot be un-even. I can usually get the trailer pretty level, and use the smaller boards under the leveling jacks and front power hitch for stability. Those little plastic wedges in front and behind the wheels provide me a comfort feeling when un-hitched from the pick-up.
