Mary Ann, what is this "white fluffy stuff" of which you speak?? LOL. We are in Melbourne on the East Coast. Are there any good camping places in Sanibel Island? Would love to go.

I just did a google search: Milenco You Tube

Got a really nice video of the unit. As long as there are two of us the Lego blocks continue to be my preference. I had previously decided agains the BAL due to weight and mess. We just have a little 13 so it is usually so easy to park.

Im getting ready to spring for one of these for the season. One question though...does anybody worry about someone falling on that big bolt sticking up? Or does it not stick put as far as it looks.

I don't find the bolt to be intrusive in my camping spot when used on the door side. Since I carry four chocks and when using the BAL only need to use two... I typically throw the two extras onto the BAL. Since the chocks are bright yellow, they act as a warning flag.

Would you be interested in shipping one? I completely understand if not....Probably not worth the cost.

Exactly, probably cost $20 to ship, that is why I'm bringing them with me from Pa to Ne, to keep the price reasonable.

My Leveler

I showed my husband a photo of what I wanted, so this is what he made me. He made it so I can use a ratchet on it to crank it up. I give him an A+ for the job!

These can also be used on tandem axle units, I've used it on mine with success.

Wow. It is amazing what you can make with a 3D printer these days.

I doubt any one will walk close enuf to the side of your trailer to trip on the BAL leveler or fall on the elevator screw. I don't even think about the number of times I've "encountered" my coupler in the dark. I believe anything like this around the home or around the home away from home is always a threat to small children but so are bumpers and marble coffee tables and cast iron patio furniture. If you live (and most do) you learn. I sense that many lose patience with this mechanism because of its weight, footprint for storage, and the need for some elbow grease to operate. That's a tradeoff against the need to back onto wood or plastic pyramids. I do not always need to level athwartship, but when I do I prefer BAL (and afterwards the Dos Equis).

Timely thread; trying to decide whether to haul my BAL with me this summer. I haven't used it in 3-4 years so I'm inclinded to leave it here. With a side-side bed, if one side of the trailer is slightly lower it doesn't bother me, and no fridge means it doesn't matter much. Plus I've almost never used it (3x, I think.) I could throw a couple of blocks in just in case but mostly I don't level side to side. On the other hand, the few times I've used it I really needed it.

That Milenco looks nice. Can't justify spending more money on something I don't use, though.

For storage I asked for and received from my local Pizza John, a pizza warming bag, the B@L fits perfectly inside.
