    New Fangled Curved Levelling Blocks

    We want to ditch most of the lumberyard from our old trailer aka levelling boards. What are your thoughts on these for levelling (these include chocks but are NOT necessarily the ones we will buy):

    I have a set, and while I use them at home, I don't travel with them since I use the AutoLevel. I have to level the trailer at home to be able to even use the AutoLevel. But they do work pretty well here at the house. Some kind of remote level viewing device would work best with them so you could see where you're at while you drive up on them.

    For those of us without leveling system and only stabilizers, those curved levelers are the bomb! We tried the 6" rise but they seemed to just slide backward rather than allow the wheels to roll upward. So we ended up with 4" and they work great. If you have a LevelMate installed then it's super easy to watch from inside the truck to see when you have gone up enough. If we're less than 3" off side to side, I watch the LevelMate on my phone, and my wife who will let me know how far I can go before I would roll off the back of the leveler. We have also have those yellow leveling blocks and have found we can lay down a couple rows of those under the curved levelers to get a couple more inches if needed. Good luck!

    I have a curved set of Anderson blocks. Have used them twice on a site where side-to-side out of level was beyond my comfort zone and wheels off the ground. I also now found it easier to used a couple of rows of the inexpensive square leveling blocks. So far I haven't had to use both at the same time.

    We have them for our travel trailer. Imagine 23LDE. They work very well. We use them in combination with a Level Mate Pro. One person can level the trailer easily. For what it's worth, ours are red, made in Idaho.

    We bought the Beech Lane ones last year and really like them. Not cheap, but well made. Since we're full-timers they stay with us all the time and are used as needed.

    I’ve used these for years and think they are great.

    I have the Beech lane ones, and have used them a number of times. They work great, but for me, I have found the blocks to be easier. Very rare I need to lift the tire more than two blocks (three put together for a ramp), and it is easy to put them under the tire's and just drive on top of them. Looking at the site, I pretty much know what I need to do.

    Nothing "new fangled" about these - the concept has been around for years.

    I second the Beech-Lane levelers. We broke three of the Anderson levelers with our Reflection 337 (admittedly, it was a heavy fifth wheel without auto-leveling) before we switched to the Beech-Lane. They are made of a stronger resin and the black color resists UV degradation better than the resins used in the Andersons. Basically, a set of these and a LevelMatePRO 2 are the next best thing to auto-leveling.
