Andersen levelers and a 25'

just received two sets of these levelers. pretty heavy duty plastic i'd say. i took them out and set up one between the stock 15" wheels. it appeared it would clear OK when i backed onto them. have any of you used them to confirm that i don't have to trim them with the stock wheels??

If you were able to use one between the wheels you are home free because the second one could be behind the other axle if you need higher lift.

So far I have only used one on a 16 in wheels with a 2x6 under both wheels.

They fit fine on my FC. You might find it easier to pull forward rather than backing.

You will not need to trim them. I use them on our 25 with 16" wheels and they work dandily!

If you are towing solo can one person use these? I currently use the Lynx blocks and have no issues when I tow solo but sometimes the trailer isn't level on the blocks but one more makes it go out of level the other way.

I use them on the EB25 with 16" wheels. They just fit between the tires. Whether you pull forward or back onto them, when you come off it helps to have an observer tell you precisely when to stop so you don't start to roll the other tire onto the big end and can pull the loose one from between the tires.

Solo Streamer here. Personally I think the Andersen Levelers are much easier for one person to use than blocks. No adding or removing blocks to get her level. Just roll back or forward the required amount and you are set.

Thumbs down Anderson Levelers

Compared to blocks of wood yes. Something is expensive if it does not do the job you bought it for. As a user I do not think they were expensive as they provide the result I wanted and require little room while stored.

If you have a level the is visible in your review mirror it is a one shot deal to level and chuck. The second piece completes the chucking.

+1 on the definition of expensive. The andersens work great. Leveling is a breeze with them. Probably the easiest part of setting up camp. Worth every penny.

The first time I used them the tire slipped sideways a little so when we got home I went to local hardware store and bought some outdoor tread tape and applied. They are so much better now.

They are a little pricey but like others have said they are worth it. No need to bring a limber yard with you anymore
