I recommended the Lego blocks for leveling, but his question was about where to place a jackstand, so I also answered the question... My original leveling blocks were very similar to what you described, except made out of 2x10's.

The only reason to keep the trailer level, is for the reefer to work properly.

It's off level limit is 1/2 of a bubble, front to back or side to side.

If the reefer will not be used, then being off level doesn't matter.

For long term storage, for the larger Airstreams, use 6 jack stands.

Place 2 on the A-frame, just forward of the shell.

Place 2 on the frame as it enters the rear banana wraps.

Place 2 on the axle mounting plate, between the tires.

NEVER, EVER, on the axles.

You're right - but why would he need the jack stand on one side? Why not just level with the Lego blocks or boards?
