While skimming thru the web I came upon what I thought was a brilliant and affordable idea to leveling blocks. The plastic sets are expensive and break and the wooden homemades can be slippery and break also. This fellow has come up with a terrific solution using a 3/4" thk hard rubber barn mat 4' x 6' that can be cut up to whatever size one wishes. These are indestructable, stackable and I would assume as flats non slip. The cost of the mat is $35 at Tractor Supply.

Given the light weight of most of the trailers here, I'd guess the failure rate of plastic blocks is quite low. I can certaInly see it being a problem with 40'+ motorhomes.

I do like the non-slip aspect and the fact that you can cut them to whatever size you want, bevel the edges, etc. Thanks for sharing the idea!

I'm betting those rubber mats are heavy too.

While I will probably keep my wood blocks, I find this a very clever alternative to the RV products . Four pieces would give 3" of lift and by cutting them into different lengths you could make a gradual rise. Keep the rest for a door mat that will last forever. I toyed with using one of these as a bed mat in my truck. Tough stuff. Raz
