Tom;
Thanks also. I was able to use 2 zippers on my cover to get into my Bigfoot and measured it out at 19 1/2"W X 20 1/2" L and about 2 1/2" H, so a 20 X 20 X 3"Pizza Bag, or larger should work fine. I'll try it out again more this coming season, as I had dropped back to the square plastic blocks, but they do need more fiddling backing on, pulling off till level.

Michael I got a great tip from a camping neighbor when I was fiddling with the blocks ( backing on pulling off etc.) It does require that you carry a really straight 2x4 of a length equal to the distance from the outside of one trailer tire to the outside of the other trailer tire. When you arrive on site first determine where your trailer wheels are going to land. Then place your 2x4 crosswise where the wheels will be, level to your blocks and back onto the blocks. Works first time every time. Lee

Lee;
That sounds good BUT an 8' 2X4 is a heavy bulky thing to carry!
Getting more technical, a laser pointer on a small level, or a laser level itself (pretty cheap at Harbor Freight on sale!) would do the trick also. But, also, 'fiddly'!
The BAL Leveler is foolproof, but does require some 'Armstrong' work!
I think I'm done with this thread, many thanks to all! Bye!

The instructions on the box say not for use with a double axle trailer. I know that the axles on my Fiber Stream are spaced too close together.

I use the yellow Ramble "Legos" and I have 2 sets of 10, and there have been times I needed all 20 blocks. I see that they come in sets of 8 now...
