No slipping here...the painted 3/4" plywood has a stop to keep the leg-go's from slipping, hinged to fit the Classic's rear 'trunk', I limit the stack,3 high. Also work well under the stab's. 👍

Agreed.

There ya go.

Keep It Simple, Stu!

Sorry for the echo . . . we use scraps of 5/4 x 8 construction cedar, and carry a dozen or so for multiple other uses
-- under the tongue jack base
-- under a regular jack for changing tires
-- split up as kindling for camp fires
-- building blocks for the grandsons to play with




KISS

Chock and block those wheels!!!

Note that in any case, no matter how you level the rig, it is essential to keep the wheels from turning once you get the rig level.

An X-chock, or other reliable method of locking the wheels from turning is essential to your safety, and preventing Airstream foot pursuit videos from making the internet...

I bought the Beech Lane levelers from Amazon. They are very heavy duty.

Beech Lane Camper Leveler 2 Pack - Precise Camper Leveling, Includes Two Curved Levelers and Two Chocks, Heavy Duty Leveler Works for Campers Up to 35,000 LBs (2) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078TJC9FN..._OEW3BbHEX9BNE

I had to cut one to fit between the tires; I used a compound miter saw, but a table saw or circular saw could work if used carefully.

I never knew side-to-side leveling could be so easy!

My red levelers work great. Guess all the Andersen haters don’t drive Japanese, German or Italian cars?

... are you referring to the very recent vandalism of our public lands and subsequent non-apologies by the owners of those car companies? Because I must have missed it.

My post-Andersen pile ... old school!

Mostly 2x8 (or maybe 2x10, been a month or two since I sawed ‘em up), slathered with many coats of outdoor paint, in camperly green.

Works great.

YES!. Camperly Green: I too am back to the old school. Another benefit is they don't flip up and lodge between your tires and the wheel well.

Also gives me a place to carve my initials should I ever feel a need to do so...

He may be referring to things that happened quite a few years ago...just guessing.

Wood blocks for me. I still crack up when I see people use $100 worth of injection molded plastic to level a trailer.

Cedar 5/4 x 8 x ~14" blocks which are versatile for a variety of tasks, including being split for kindling!

Especially when they split the first time you drive on to them (maybe that was your point).

Tundra: American designed and manufactured. Probably has as much or more US content than some of the “domestic “ brands.
