For fine-tuning, I use an ordinary, 24" carpenter's level: across trailer tongue; rear bumper; place level flush under each window frame. As far as I'm concerned, if the bubble touches either line on the level, it's is "good enough."

But if you're rolling out of bed, perhaps you should level your bed instead of your rig. LOL

Seriously, an unlevel bed is worth checking in to. In this business, stranger things have happened.

On my 30' FC, I put a torpedo level on the freezer floor, and jacked up the nose till level.
I then set two bubble levels, (One on each A-frame arm) to match the torpedo level.
When the nose is jacked up to level, the whole 'house' sits several degrees nose high, but that's all right. The eggs don't slid to one side of the pan, and the bed is very comfortable. (I store the AS on a level pad that I had poured out back.)
For lateral (East-West) leveling, I have one those 'steel ball in a tube of fluid' affairs mounted under the front window. It works.

That is nice.
HUGE problem though, Airstream trailers are not stiff enough to handle being leveled that way. It would twist the body, possibly causing problems such as leaks and not being able to close the door.

My Cruiser has a new stronger chassis. The driving permit for the trailer is on a total weight of 3 tons. So far, he has not yet fallen apart....

Best reply, once you have the coach level fix the level on top of the jack.

I have a cheap 1 ft. carpenters level in my storage compartment. I use the rub rail and have checked it v/s the floor and they are the same. It is easy, right where you are working. The little bubble level on my jack is off.

We have a 2017 Flying Cloud 25FB and I have the same sliding out the bed feeling. I always level the trailer inside the front door with a 2' level and check the fridge with a 6" level. Guess next time I'll put a level on the beds plywood frame and check it. I am wondering if the mattress overhanging the plywood has something to do with it, causing a gravitational pull. I would hate to cut off the overhang and find out that wasn't it.

Thanks for the iPhone tip. Didn't know the level function was there. I've always used a 9" Stanley level we carry onboard. We're camping right now at Silver Falls State Park in Oregon. I used the iPhone app to double check my work with the Stanley level. Spot on. I guess that's why neither my wife or I rolled out of bed onto the floor last night! 😊

It is better than the comedy hour. One simple question and over twenty different answers. Just use a simple leveler placed inside the AS door and then adjust trailer. I then check the shower door open. I am not paranoid about being level to centimeters. I say close enough for government work.
