You know if you pick the low side of the bed to sleep on it tends to help the "cuddle factor" cause gravity will not be denied. Pretty soon the DW is all snuggled up right close and comfy and who knows what might happen next.
Gotta keep and eye for the silver lining you know

Had this been a dirt campsite, I would have simply dug a pit for the high side wheels and worked it out from there. State Parks frown on digging hole in their asphalt
Looking for suggestions on what products there might be to get up to 6 to 8 inches of height without having to go to the lumberyard. I like the drive on ease of the Trileveler and have considered the Anderson unit but would only get 4" with their leveler. I'm looking for something "more"
Thanks for the help!
I've never had to raise one side more than 4" and think if I was going to have to I would change the position of the trailer so I wouldn't have to.

Sometimes the options just aren't available. In this case a 3 7/8" leveler got me half way there. If I had something a little taller I'd have been more comfortable but it wasn't too much to deal with for 2 nights. If we were planning a longer stay we would have done something different like move to an RV designated site instead of a tent site driveway

I looked at these and thought they would be nice if it didn't need to be as high as you want. I have just always used wood in different lengths

Thanks Clutch, I saw these but they are limited to 4". Same company has a "Rapid Jack" same design but is 8" tall. Talked to their customer service folks and they admit you could use the rapid jack and a wheel chock under it to keep the TT from rolling back. Might be a reasonable option.

A set of those on top of 3 2"X 8"X 4'...

I'd wear a parachute If I had to lift that much....

Think I will stick to using the boards 2"x 8"x 6' then keep some 2"x 8"x 12" and some 5/4"x 6"x 12" for fine adjustments.
usually the 2" hight adjustment is more than enough.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I had hoped for a manufactured solution but evidently short of a bottle jack and some "Jenga-Tetrus" ingenuity I just need to find a more level camp site. I appreciate the input. Happy camping!!
