Actually, that's called a Football, as in when you were a kid you got your mother a football for he birthday because she didn't have one and maybe she'd let you play with it...

I have a yellow set, same as Donna. Got them one at a time at garage sales- 50 cents or a buck each I painted my stands yellow to match--easy to spot as I pack up. Call me frugal ( read cheap)

Maybe I'd better give away a pair of Yellow Donna blocks at the NOG for the nametag contest

"Donna Blocks"
I kinda like the sound of that.
I have a pair for each wheel AND a couple of collapsable ones that came with a long gone Mazda.

We use the yellow ,"Donna" ones also. I noted they have an expiration date on them, maybe five years. Can this be true? Also use the BAL leveler on the low side.

I love the folding pair I have in my Jeep, but I couldn't find them again for the trailer (and I didn't want to cannibalize my Jeep set up...not yet). I have the yellow ones from Camping World. They're bulky, but they do the trick.

A note on the folding ones...if you DO decide to pull your trailer straight over them for any reason, they WILL collapse. (I only have one of my original pair left since I inadvertently drove over one with the Jeep....oops!)

I also use the Donna yellow ones, Though the other night we were in a site that I was a little worried that they wouldn't be enough so added rocks behind them. Then even though we were unhooked from the truck, I hooked my saftey chains to the truck along with the safety brake wire. Finally felt secure enough to go to bed. LOL........ We didn't go anywhere and probably would have been fine, but I wasn't so sure. The saftey brake wire made me feel the best cause I figured if we did roll away, it would break and put the brake in motion. At least that was my hope after a very long day. Robin

2pr. from Camping World (like Donna's) but now faded. I'll have to check for an expiration date( ), never occurred to me and ours are about 5 years old.

Expire? Huh? Like how? Maybe fall apart or become like the collapsible kind? I'll have to check too and see if there's a date of some sort.

I supose that like most plastics they would get weathered and crack etc, so maybe that's why theres an expiration date. I guess for a few bucks it's worth replaceing every few years. Personally I wondered how that little plastic ( as cute as the color is) could actually really hold the weight of the trailer when in a goofy site such as the one we were in the other night. Robin
