I'll stick with 2X10 and lynx blocks.
Murelene and I like using state federal campgrounds when we travel. I am just finishing up a 12 night trip that includes a 4 night stop in Nashville in mid October. Most sites are pull-through, every site has electric, some have water, and a few have full hook-ups but all have showers and flush toilets. Some have concrete pads, some gravel, while others have grass. We have a Sunseeker MBS2400WS and pull a motorcycle transport trailer.
What I have done is make up 12" x 36" x 3/4" plywood float boards with a cleat on one end. If the ground is soft. I put a board under each tire and one under the stabelizers. If the site is not level, I put leveling blocks on the boards as necessary to bring the motorhome to a near level position. I always try and keep the drivers side a little high because the full side slide-out makes the motorhome rock to that side a bit when in the full extended position. As far as a level goes. I have a free bubble app on my cell phone that works just fine.
I pull or back most of the way into a site, put the phone with the level app running in the middle of the cabin floor so I can determine what I need to do as far as leveling. Then I will set up the boards and Lego blocks as necessary. Then I pull forward or back up 18" to center on the blocks. By using the board, then a 4-3-2 block layer, I can get almost 4". Unless we are spending a week at a site, one attempt at leveling is good enough..
We are using state/federal campgrounds, not $60 a night RV Parks.
BTW Total camping cost for this 12 night trip $310 including all taxes and online reservation fees. Highest night is 45 at a Full hook-up pull-through RV Resort near Indianapolis. Lowest night is $11 for an Electric/water pull through at a Army Corps of Engineers site near Nashville (no sewer hookup available there but Dump station). Granted, I do get half price there because of my America The Beautiful Senior Pass ( best $10 I ever spent) and senior discounts at most state campgrounds but I can live with having to level my RV when cutting the nightly cost in half over the price of a KOA site.
