I agree. Wedge the tires with cheap plastic wheel chocks and then X chock the tires.

Buddy of mine was rather "ill" one morning while packing up and was about to leave with still in place on his 5'er... A friend was sitting in his lawn chair and said "Just wait I wanna video this!".. The hungover one looked and saw what he was about to be famous for..

That's as close as I know of...

We love our X Chocks.. They definitely take alot of the movement out of the TT..

Ok. I will say it... How long does it take to kick some insurance I front of/behind the tires. If chocks ever stopped ONE trailer from rolling on accident...then it's good insurance. That being said..I use both as recommended here. I really don't notice the difference in the rocking...but the DW does...so that's good enough for me.
