Had to modify mine as well. Only a couple inches between wheels on our TT. I just cut off about an inch from the skinny end and they fit just fine now. Starts off at like 3/4" inch thick now. Figure if I have to level any less than that it's good enough and I leave it as is. lol

If you only need to go up a little, just use one leveler. One inch rise on one leveler raises the camper 1/2 inch.

The first time I used my Andersen Levelers I pulled forward over the big end as described. The rear one shot out the back clear into the forest (site surface was blacktop). I pulled forward very slow...which actually probably helped propel the leveler. Luckily no one and nothing got hit. I got brave and tried the method once again while leaving a gravel/dirt site...the forward leveler got jammed in between the tires (I've got one of those close fit setups that required trimming of the corners to fit). I still love my Andersen Levelers...I just don't "pull over" them any more!

I used stall mat strips before switching to the Andersens. I liked them much better than boards and legos, but they are heavy...VERY heavy. The mat I cut into strips was 98lbs.

I still carry a few small pieces for when the trailer just needs an inch or less and for when the Andersens are not quite high enough. I also occasionally use them as padding for my knees when kneeling on gravel or wet surfaces.

guys, believe me, i hate boards, REALLY want the andersons, but i am by no means rich lol. yes sure i have the money but try to stick to somewhat of a budget but have already gone way past this year on the camper mod/accessory budget.

but on a good note someone has messaged me with a used set of andersons at a great price so, this weekend will be boards (maybe just the old short ones) and soon i will have used andersons.
You are 100% correct,over pull then place other ramp behind release brake and they "Self level and Chock" 2 Moves,it don't get any easier! Anderson is 4 moves! Youroo!!

Anderson's only require you put them in front or behind the wheels and back until level and put the wedge in. Plus they are much lighter.

Youroo,
Who makes those? I looked online for something like those ramps but only find ones that have steps in them.
