Looks like a good idea but...It appears to be pretty bulky and it seems that you really need 2 people to do it correctly. Just what i have taken from the video. I use Orange blocks and have it down to an art and i can do it by myself while DW tends to the kids. I like the fact i can chock both front and rear of the side that is on the blocks. Plus they have given me so much free stuff i cant switch now!

The cheapest and most effective leveller is a length of 2 x 8 with a couple of small lengths of 2 x 6 for ramps. Can be done easily with one person. No authorized dealer requirement and you can paint it to the colour of your choice.

No gimmicks.

True. However I have yet to lay out any cash (first set of blocks was a gift) 2 more and sets and a pack of caps won on their Facebook page for contributing camping photos and what not. I am happy to promote their products and tell anyone rv related to buy a pack!

I like the fact that they can be used as jacks if you have a flat as well.

So if anyone else would like the lower price and are close to Grand Haven Michigan.....No extra shipping or sales tax would be a plus.
The new Red versions are way better. They are wider and have an anti-slip texture to the bottom.....plus they are no longer tethered with a short cord.
count me in! I'm just north of Grand Rapids in Cedar Springs.

I am actually interested in them myself. 4" of leveling will get me level in most campgrounds.

my wheels are to close together to use them. boo hoo. I'll stick with the orange blocks. I would have to roll up one way and put the other one in the other direction and roll back. to much work...

How do you know that ??

I didn't read anywhere that there was a problem with close wheels. Mine are close together also, so don't want to get those puppies if they won't work.

If you wheels are close together then how are you going to get that contraption between the front and rear wheel? JUST saying.
