Same as Donna's, only in black to match the tires.

I used to have the folding kind, until I forgot they were in place once and mangled one of them trying to pull out of my storage place. That photo above shows them upside-down from the way I used them.

Ditto on Donna's. They were cheap and lightweight.

I just use the BAL Leveler now. I tried to move the trailer with the leveler set up (accidently of course) and it would not move. The only problem with the leveler is the size and weight but it's worth to be able to micro tune the leveling for the fridge.

On the cheap, with our Boler came an 8 inch 4 x 4 block of wood split corner to corner, into 4 pieces. These chocks work just fine. (They are painted blue and some day we will re-paint them in a co-ordinated colour.)

While we never get THAT finicky to have to worry about micro tuning to level for the fridge ROTFLMBO!!!) I usually end up using either 2 or 4 of the foldible ones depending on the ground levelness. I 'found' my matching 4 at a friendly local 'bone yard'.
Free IS good!!!


Did I mention FREE ....LOL!!!

Cheap & simple - 2x4's; short medium and long - which do double duty as levellers as the site requires. Those store-bought chocks look mighty tempting, though.

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 =)

Industrial rubber chocks. Around $26, if I remember correctly. I have a steep driveway and when I park the PP on it, I don't want it going anywhere.

I also have the Donna Blocks, in yellow. Several times I would have driven off without them but someone noticed and reminded me.

I would normally use a piece of wood, but these are inexpensive and have that nice high curve which should even withstand something bumping my Egg hard -- I really don't want to see my egg disappearing over a bank or, worse, galloping through a crowded campground.
