A 'Whatsit' question

We brought our new '58 Overlander home last weekend, and there were some things in boxes inside. Being new to this whole world of AS, there is a learning curve going on! I am wondering if anyone can help me identify this thing that was in one of the boxes, there are 2 of them:


Thanks for any illumination!

Tire chocks. They go between the tires on a dual axle trailer.

Those are wheel chocks for a tandem axle trailer. Somewhere I have a picture showing them chocked between the two tires. I will see if I can find it and post it.

Come to think of it--is a 58 Overlander a tandem axle trailer?

Congrats on your new Overlander!
(Do you go with MaryC? Is this Mello Mike's trailer?)

Thanks for the responses! Yes, Lynetta, I'm with her and this is Mello Mike's trailer! Or at least it was!

Your refrigerator returns to Oregon!

Spike -
I brought my Tradewind's original refrigerator with me in the back of my pickup on a visit to my mother's in AZ. I delivered it to Mello Mike for his/your Overlander.

Interesting, Mark- I don't know what happened to it, as we have a later model fridge in there now. Mary want's to put in a lower profile one so that a counter can go on top of it.
It's a small 'Streamer world, though, eh?

We have the same chocks. Very easy to use and adjust.
