I like the idea of this but I'm trying to figure something out. If you need say 4" of lift you pull forward on the front one until level? If so then the back wheel will remain on the ground. If you put the ramp behind it then wouldn't it only be acting as a chock?

Talking about truck/trailer moves, not pcs.

No you are Up on 1 ramp the RV "Seeks it's own Level" when you release the Brake! It is then "Wedged between 2 Wedges"! In regards to needing 4" of lift,Andersons will not go that high,and you would need Lots of 2x? to acquire this also! Youroo!!

If you need to raise one side 4" to be level, how far do you drive up one ramp to get the trailer to "settle" at the needed 4"?

I'm still wrestling with the above. Maybe "finding another site" works somewhere else where its flat but that option doesn't sound so good here in western/central PA .

We would be constantly searching for sites, 6" on one side is not uncommon and sometimes more is required. Then again we tend to camp at the less developed PA state parks and ACOE faciilites. The sites we choose are usually grass or leaves and hardly ever gravel or paving. I have even had to dig a few inches out under the opposite tires or under the front jack and A frame to get level once in a blue moon.

I'll stick with 2X10 and lynx blocks.

boards and blocks will certainly work, they were the standard before any of the other gadgets came along,... if you have a single axle trailer, IMO the BAL Leveler is the best "gadget" on the market for leveling smaller trailers,.... and w/the BAL you can get 5 1/4" lift,... the links below show it at Amazon and a youtube video showing how it works, .... just my opinion, but I think its the best................
