know before you go

no matter what method you use, I've found you can eliminate trial and error by knowing how much you need to raise the low side,.... I use a 2' level and 1/4" blocks on my rear bumper to know how much I need to raise(tt is 8'wide, so 1/4" in 2' = 1" of rise needed)...... works w/lego blocks, wood, even Andersen, w/Andersen I predetermined how many inches I need to pull forward to raise up on the Andersen to get a known height, I lay a yard stick on the ground at my open drivers door and watch it as I pull forward,...... knowing how much you need to rise works every time w/any device, no trial and error, back and forth,......

I'm using the Andersen now but am always willing to try something that may be better,.... someone mentioned the stall mats and I might try that someday,..... but knowing how much to raise is certainly a benefit,....... I just stack boards, lego blocks, or stall mat pieces to the needed height, or drive forward on the Andersen a known distance,...... gets me level every time, 1st time,...........

I'm not even sure we even have 3"... but the Andersen levelers can be trimmed to fit. Up to 4" off the front (between holes 1 and 2) and beveled to suit.

Yes. I usually pull onto them. Then when leaving, you can just drive off them!

I saw a video of the guy driving off the thickest end, trailer landed and bounced. Probably wont hurt anything but looked bad. could see that bounce popping open cabinets or something.

Do you have a single axle trailer or do you make your rear wheel "drive" over the front one when leaving?

I have 2 axles. When you drive off them, the front leveler ends up in between the two tires and is easily removed.

See what I mean at 1:10 in this video

find another site, .... one time using a BAL Leveler on a single axle Casita, I did need to use the total rise, about 5", but that wasn't at a campground, it was in a back yard, but the BAL did it,....
