Which levelers do you recommend?

For a dual axle TT, which leveler system do you suggest? I'd like to find a brand that will raise both wheels. The Andersen seems more narrow that the tire tread, so part of the tires will hang off--not a good idea. The Lynx Leveler is wide enough, but will it go between the two tires, so both can be raised?

...or should I just make some levelers out of 2 X 8's?

Yes the Lynx fit between the wheels & in my opinion the easiest to use & most versital. WalMart have them.

A vote for the Andersen levelers. The tire contact patch is much narrower than the tread, so in my opinion that is not a problem. The ease of use and the ability to get level in one step make it our choice (for both our single and double axle trailers).

A few 2 x 8 boards or stackable plastic levelers will work fine.

When we were still trailering, instead of motorhoming, I used the Andersens and loved them.

We have been using the Lynx Levelers for the past ten years and have like them enough that we have not been tempted to try anything else. The are very durable and versatile.

When our Lynx levelers wear out or we get sick of them, we will switch to the Andersons. Until that day, we'll keep using our levelers. 😊

We love our Andersons. Have had no issues with them at all. Gotten to a point I know how much the trailer needs to be raised and can pretty much back/or pull on to them to get the level right on first try. Ease of use wins.

Andersons 4x. The big level under the AS front window is visible from the driver's seat (of my SUV), so no guesswork. I just wait a little while for that heavy metal ball in the liquid to settle...

Has anyone had to stack a lynx block under the Andersons to get level? We did once, but I think discrete use of an entrenching tool on the opposite side might be called for if this situation presents itself again....one thoughtful friend suggested that a claw hammer would do that job nicely?

I am a big fan of the Andersen's. Easy to use and very precise.
