Doug, I like to place my trailer 'just so' when I am going to be camping for a long time. This might require me 'gasp' moving the trailer around by hand - nice not to have to try and push it onto blocks while doing it =)
Booker, we be talkin about CHOCKS here NOT blocks (leveling kind) to stop (hopefully) the trailer from wonderin. When set up even for a few days I find I need to go out and re-set the two stabilizer 'jacks' out back but never have to move the chocks. LOL!!!!

Movin the trailer round by hand (with us any way) is usually accomplished with the help of a 'boler strowler'.

I use Rotochock brand of chocks. They are hard to beat for a dual axle trailer.

Doug, that is the beauty of the Bal Leveler - chocks and leveler in one!

Ok, enough about the Bal Levelers. I had a pair of steel chocks on our last trailer - one piece ramp with teeth on one side that really dug in. They looked super old but they were great. Shouldn't have passed them to the new owners of that trailer =)

I use Donna's yellow wedges (thanks Morgan) and sometimes a variety of wood and other 2x4 etc depending on how much I have to tweak the trailer to get it into the chosen spot.

I'd love advice on how to wedge the tires in when parking in less than level spots. I'm guessing it is just a learning process, but a couple of times the trailer has shifted MUCH more than I wanted when it lifted off the ball from the truck....

Not cheap, frugal -- Cheap involves another person; if you don't get yourself a birthday present, you are frugal -- If you don't get your wife a birthday present, you are cheap (and in deep doo-doo).

Orange ones from Walmart. I like 'em because they stack. I can take all 4 stacked together and they still fit in the storage door.

....like Kevins but usually FREE at a well stocked auto dismanteler (IF you are willing to go on a scavanger hunt therein, LOL).


A 'birthday present for you wife, ....I'd say ONLY if you didn't mind 'wearing' them where the sun don't shine (....very much, LOL).

Does the phrase "deep doo-doo" sink in?
