Stabilization - Camco Wheel stops

Hello everyone,

Was not sure what section to post this in as I did not see one on Leveling and stabilization.

Has anyone used the Camco Wheel stops to help stabilize their trailer?

I saw these and they look nice and lightweight.

Amazon.com: Camco 44622 Wheel Stop (Large): Automotive

Are there any Rockwood HW296 owners out these that use these? Would I need the small size or the large size?

Thanks,

Vin.

Hi Vin

I just picked up a pair of XChocks and I have used them the last two times out. My TT didnt move at all, they are very solid and easy to use.

Amazon.com: BAL 28012 X-Chock Tire Locking Chock: Automotive

Yep. Saw those also. Just thinking the Camco ones may be a bit smaller and easier to pack. Plus they are cheaper!!!!

Agree on using x-chocks. Camco looks like a cheap imitation. You get what you pay for!

lol. so true! That is why I was wondering what others thought.

My friend made a mod using pieces cut from a 4X4 and using a pipe clamp to tighten them. They looked a lot like the Camco one. Just s simple wedge type design.

I figured I can but the Camco for around the same price as I can make them.

BAL does make a nice product.

Vin.

Much better grip with the x-chock using the wrench than hand tighten a knob.

X-chocks might be 3x's the money but it will be a one time expense not like Camco,

We have used the camco ones for about 3 years and we have been happy with them no problems.
