Thank you for the input. The reason I ask is because I know the newer trailers have a greater distance between wheels and I just thought I would get a simple answer. I sloped 3 boards 1 at 4' and 2 at 3'

I also cut 4 18" 4x4 (one for each stabilizer) and 2 14" 4x4 for the tongue. I also have a couple of 2x6 pieces for the tongue as well.

Which, oddly enough, is what I have. I even went outside to measure.

Did they have the wider tire distance in the 2014 compared to the newer rigs?

Nope, they are exactly the same.

Changes for 2017 include:
1 drawer under dinette bench
LED lighting under awning
Solar power prep and
Rear camera prep
And a Continu.us omnidirectional tv antenna

That's pretty much it.

I carry some foot long 1x6 pieces. Use them quite often. Trying to level in 1.5 inch increments seems to often be a tad to little or to much.

I know he OP has already bought and cut his boards but I would suggest that you leave the boards long enough that you can place chocks on both ends and have the chocks fully on the boards. That leaves the space between the tires for X-chocks.

I cut one 2x10 (see Radio's comment) as long as I could and still fit in the bed of my truck with the tail gate closed. I use lego blocks on top of the board if needed. Wvrond, can you use the Anderson levelers on top of a board, or will they slide?

There is a tendancy for them to slide on any smooth surface. Some folks have put adhesive treads on them to counteract this, but I've never had a problem on pavement, concrete or wet grass. I believe that if I were going to make a board to go under them on really soft ground I would apply a traction strip to the top of the board to enhance traction.

I bought 2 sets of these, one for each tire. These will work with any TT, are alot lighter and stow easier.
