    Leveling blocks???????

    For anyone who has purchased the curved leveling blocks is there some to buy and also some to stay away from? Have read many posts that absolutely love them and also some who have crushed them on their first use. I think that they are a good idea but don't want the hassle of purchasing something that is either poorly designed or made with inferior material. TYIA.....

    We used the Beach Lane levelers for 2+ yrs with our previous TT - 11,000 lb GVWR. Never had an issue with them. Bought the BLs due to reading reports of the Andersen levelers breaking. Never found a report of the BL levelers breaking, but that may not mean anything. The BL levelers come with the mat for use in gravel and sand. Not sure if the Andersen does now or not.

    We have the Anderson and love them, but as @Fsalmy mentioned, if you have a heavier rig (10,000+) Beach Lane's might be the better choice.

    Leveling blocks???????

    I have a set of Andersons. I hate them I used them once in the driveway. I keep a couple of 1x8s and 2x8s in my truck bed. So much easier. I park the trailer where I want it. I put a level on the A frame and decide the height. Then I take a board lay it parallel to the wheels move up and have my wife push them in, done. I can sell you them?

    I have used the Anderson and am using the Camco now.

    I had the Anderson for our single axle vintage Airstream and it cracked.

    So when we got our new trailer I was looking for something different found the Camco. They were much cheaper than buying two Anderson's and the honeycomb design of the Camco made sense for strength.

    I have been happy with the Camco levelers. They are sturdy and do the job. The only con is their size. Wider would be good. The shorter length can be an issue as well as it takes some careful throttle work to not drive right off them. The Anderson's are longer so they are more forgiving when pulling the tires on them. But the length of the Anderson can also be an issue with tandems and you have to trim one of them.

    If and when I need new ones, I will look at the Beech Lane. But for the money and as infrequently we use them the Camco work very well for me.

    I have both, Beech Lane and Anderson. With my old camper, I've broken 2 Anderson but no BL. I think the issue with the Anderson is the arc is not the same radius as the tires. So when the tires apply weight, it cracks the hard plastic trying to open up the curve. The BL seems to be made out of a slightly softer plastic that flexes a bit. My old camper weighed in just under 10k. Haven't tried with my 337 yet.

    Wow. I'm really behind the times. I've been using Linx blocks for years with no issues. I just build a stack at the needed height and drive the trailer up on them.

    I find putting the truck into 4 LO actually make it easy
    Low speed and lots of torque

    That is all I used on my last trailer as well and they work fine just find with the LevelMatePRO these work better and if you need 3-4 inches in height the camco levellers will take up much less space than the required linc blocks to do the same
