Great advice - but as I am a solo camper - I would have to tell directions, get out, talkback to myself, then jump back in to reply! It is all good. Thanks!

I tried the HF chocks and wasnít impressed. Too steep, they donít go far enough under the tire so they end up moving. I think theyíre designed for a much larger diameter tire like a semi. I use a mix of Anderson and Camco, along with my X-chocks since I have a dual axle trailer.

Thanks for that. I noticed they are on sale now, and I was thinking of ditching my slide-prone plastic chocks for rubber. I saw the steepness in the ad photo and wondered if the photo had been altered to fit the space. Iíll keep looking.

Don't be too hard on yourself oh, the shorter a trailer is the more difficult it is to backup. And a 13 foot or would be difficult to learn how to do because every minor input of the steering wheelmakes a major turn in the trailer

I use two

I actually only use two chocks ---- mostly. If I have a question I will full chock and use something like my leveling blocks for the other two. Mostly I only have it using the chocks long enough to get the leveling done and then really it is sitting on the jacks and it could not roll even with effort.

Cell phone between you and the spotter is handy.

I agree with Get Out and Look! (At what is behind your trailer) Better safe than sorry!

With backing a trailer, you want to make small adjustments and make these adjustments before you need them, so when the trailer responds, you will be right on target!

Practice makes perfect 😁

I've been very happy with my rubber HF chocks and 14" wheels. The angle is not an issue. They can get brittle and crack if left in sun for about 5 years straight, though; I leave a couple on the driveway 24/7 for stopping my cargo trailer when I back in every day after work, that's how I know.
