Anyone using Andersen or camco levelers?

Looking at these for use with a levelmate pro. My father in law uses this set up. He pulls up where he wants his trailer, looks at the level mate, backs up and places the Andersens, and drives up on them until the phone shows level. So easy a caveman can do it.

Only issue I see: His jayco has a much wider spacing between the axles than my 2509S. I've read the andersens have an issue with tight wheels. The camcos caught my eye because they are smaller, and cost a lot less. I still plan on carrying some wood for soft ground or really unlevel sites.

I use and love the ease of my Anderson levelers! My trailer axles are very close together also. I just shortened one of the levelers as per Anderson and have had no problems. You won't need to carry wood ramps anymore. I was just looking at the Levelmate Pro 2 today. Thinking this is my next purchase.

I mounted a calibrated bubble level on the front of the camper. 1" on the bubble level = 1 Lego block (Lynx Levelers). Get the A-frame within a few inches of the desired spot, read the level, put the appropriate number of blocks behind the low tire and back on. Really simple, and a box of Legos cost $30 at Walmart.

Have a couple of smallish (4"x6") 3/4" pieces of ply for those in between heights and the tongue jack stub.

If I were buying between the 2 options, I'd choose the Andersen over the Camco. Camco products are generally knockoffs of better products and I dislike rewarding them for it.

Third option. Beech Lane levelers. Same quality of Andersen, a bit less. I love Beech Lane Camper Leveler 2 Pack - Precise Camper Leveling, Includes Two Curved Levelers, Two Chocks, and Two Rubber Grip Mats, Heavy Duty Leveler Works for Campers Up to 35,000 LBs (2) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078TJC9FN..._b31zCbDQC35PV

Love love the Anderson levelers. Also got LevelMatePRO from the wife two years ago. Really like that too. Now the kicker. Added the LCI smart jack last season. The three in combo are perfect and make set up and tear down a dream. Click image for larger version

We use the LevelMatePRO and Andersen levelers combination on our Micro Lite 21FBRS and love it. We did have to trim one leveler to fit between the wheels, but once that was done, we’re good. Being able to level side to side from behind the wheel in the truck is a real breeze.
