Looking to buy Rotochoks

So I guess this company is out of business. I am looking for Large size, as I have 4 1/2" between my wheels, does anyone know where I can buy them? Used is fine. Thanks

Pearl, the older lady that ran the Rotochok business, passed away a couple of years ago. From what I understand, she ran the company entirely by herself because her husband had passed earlier. Then I guess a family member?? took over the business, cancelled all of their dealerships according to one dealer I talked too. They sold only direct, now their website has gone down, the domain has expired, and they are not answering the phone.

The ingenuity, quality, and pure aesthetics of the Rotochok is top notch, if you own an Airstream, I would think you would love them. I would searoulsy consider buying their tooling and restarting the company if I was able to connect with them

Thanks, but the Rotochok is much different than the X Chock. I need Large or Medium Large Rotochoks which are hard to find. There appears to be a lot of small ones available, but not large. I am fascinated by the design of these things and wish the company did not close.

I don't understand your post but...

"What if I told you" according to BAL, X Chocks are not suitable to be used as a chock, they are only intended to "Limit unwanted trailer movement" which is the same disclosure by UniFab, Winfield, and all the other manufactures of this type of device.

And... "What if I told you" Rotochoks never had that disclaimer. Invented by a full time RV couple, it was a superior design, brilliant aesthetics, a little American mom and pop business, until the couple passed on not long ago.

I've sent email the the family, have not heard, if the opportunity presents itself where I can buy what remains of the company, I will consider it.

Wow. You really did search for these. When I put rotochok in the Google search box it immediately brought up a link to the company that sells them.

This is getting ridiculous. If you bothered to read the Thread you would see the company your found (VIP) was mentioned above, they are out of stock except for the "Petite" size and that I need Large, and that I called them already.

Thanks for the PM's from the folks who have helped.

I investigated buying a set last year, but it was hard to contact the woman running the place. I tried phone and email many times. When I finally made contact, I was not sure that there would ever be product delivery or support. So I gave up on the idea.
