I'm with you pacieman. I just ordered a set myself. Hope they work.
I see they use a patch of rubber or something under their tire lift. I wonder if glueing a piece of an old rubber doormat or someting similar to the bottom would help with the sliding on concrete? Anyone try that with the Andersen levelers?

I cut a couple pieces of rubber flooring for a barrier between concrete and gravel and the Andersens. The rubber also works for sand and soft wet soil, to lay down a couple of legos as a base and them roll up on the Andersens with the rubber between.

Regular, relatively firm grassy (or bare) ground is not an issue at all. Sand and recently hard rained on ground can be an issue.

Having a tandem, I went from having to carry 3+ sets of legos to <1 set and the Andersens. Saved a lot of space in my bumper drawer....and is a lot easier and quicker to set up.

Same here and it's a fool proof system.

Fishing, I have not seen a reason to do that. The only time I have had one slide was operator error. I do carry 2 2X8s for soft ground support if needed.

I knew if you sold enough of those drugs....


We recently used someone else's advice while at a dump station and drove completely up on them on the opposite side, tilting the Airstream a little. Honestly, these look pretty cool compared to lego blocks, IMO.
