I carry two sets of the Lynx levellers with me to cover all needs might have.

I have enough to raise both wheels.

Never seen the Andersens before and they look interesting - I like the fact that you can just pull ahead until achieving the right level and then chock them in place.

But will they raise one wheel high enough to get the adjacent one well clear of the ground to
change a tire as I can do with the Lynx levellers?

Also, the Lynx levellers can also be used under the stabilizers and/or tongue jack, which I suppose is an advantage - I do use them for that.

Brian.

I like the Andersen levelers, but I seldom ever use levelers of any style.
I use my Lynx levelers maybe once or twice per year.
Maybe once per year I am on a campsite bad enough out of level to need to raise one side of the trailer on the Lynx levelers.
At least once per year I camp in sand.
Then I use 5 of the Lynx levelers- one under each of the stabilizers and one under the tongue jack to help keep them from sinking in the sand.
I like the Andersen levelers, just don't have any real use for them.
It is a very good idea- a very well executed idea, though.

We love the Andersen levelers and would not use Lynx again for leveling the trailer, but we still carry and use them. As others have said, they serve multiple other purposes (like the stabilizers and tongue jack) and we have also used them to level picnic tables.

Why not get both?

Exactly what we did. I use our set of the Lynx blocks for all sorts of things - under the tongue and stabilizer jacks, etc., and the Andersen levelers to level side to side in one easy step. We even used them this past weekend on a cement site that was just about 1 inch off level side to side. We are both sensitive to our beds not being level, so we like to get it just right.

They are wide enough to support the tires with no problem.

Andersons for leveling.

We bought Anderson's tough pads for the tongue and stabilizers. Same as the lnyx. We just got pieces of wood from the previous owner, so I was in the market for all new anyhow.

Yep, we inherited wood blocks from Dad, so Lynx were a huge step up - lighter, neater, etc. we have 3 bags of them plus 6 caps.

As others have noted, they are all-purpose devices. There have been plenty of times when we had 3 layers of levelers on one side or the other of Rocinante to even things out. Maybe we're just too adventurous. 😉

Wondering if the interlocking protrusions on the top of the Lynx blocks are harmful to the tires when parking for a long time?

Does one need to use a LynxCap or is it ok to park the tires directly on the blocks?

Which levelers do you recommend?

As far as we're concerned, they're fine as-is. We use the caps under the stabilizers and the tongue jack.

I have a set of Lynx levelers but only get them out when I really need them - too much hassle. I carry a milk crate full of 2 x 8's and 1 x 8's which allows me to get the level centered each site.
The Anderson's look interesting so I will put them somewhere on the wish list.
