we used the hosspad extreme (14x14) for ours - they have worked great.

We did just get a set of these, but haven't yet installed them.

Automatic RV Leveling Jack Pads - RV SnapPad

They are the same material as the hosspads, but you don't have to put them down every time. (I've tried to leave my hosspads behind twice....when we did our packup in the wrong order)

Made mine from 2X12s. Then used dry wall screws to make them into 4x12s. Nylon rope attached to the sides to swing them under, and pull them out. Not counting the trip to Home Depot, 15 minutes work. About $20.
When and If they ever break.... Recycle in the campfire!! ��

Yeah...I could have got wood cheaper and painted, screwed, or sealed and replaced when broke, but I just wanted something easy to maintain, with no worries for splinters and that I can use for a lifetime without worrying.

Sounds like some great low cost options that work well for many, but when I saw something I could get 4 of new for the price of 1 I figured I would take the leap. The "value" part of me had to get them...much like my wife is attracted to a sale at Kohls (I had a 20% off coupon!)

Jack Pads

I got mine from Northern Tool on Ebay. Quality Plastics Utility Block 4 pack for 80.00 plus 12.50 shipping. I got mine in May of 2014. Nice and easy to use and very durable!

well...i think i found where the person on Ebay got them so cheap...government auction in his area in december of last year....think he spent a whole 281 bucks on 59 of these DICA pads that sell for 146 each for some reason (probably just the government price, civilian world probably 46 bucks).

Better than stolen, and they arrived in plastic wraps and are the real deal....more heavy duty than i will ever need with a lifetime warranty. Hes sold out now.

They are similar, found good reviews on the Bigfoot pads. I wanted a larger area to make sure I had some room for error when placing them so that's why I wanted the 15" square ones. Mine are hefty and 14 pounds each, probably over killed it a bit!


I also saw those utility blocks from Northern tool but they didn't have them in stock, probably a good option as well.
