Poured in Place Blocks

I made poured in place concrete blocks for our pop-up that lasted for 8 years without any hint of rolling, settling, cracking or shifting. I have done the same thing for our newer camper and have no reason to think they will behave any different. We had about a foot of fall also, with an 8" side to side slope and this method made a perfect pad. The ground sloped back to the pads, so no blocking is required since it can't roll backward with the wheel stops I built in and it sure isn't rolling up hill on its own. Ignore the box under the camper in the one blew under there in a storm and I haven't retrieved it yet.

Just went out and used my Walking Vertical Dimension Indicator (aka: wife) to take a more discerning estimation.

There's actually only about a 1 foot drop from the back to the front.

Fridge would not be running while it is parked in this location.
Might be a little late to the party but, with that amount of incline, you shouldn't even start your fridge the few hours before you head out on trip to chill it down, unless you bring it near level, because it will not circulate the amonia based coolant properly, and WILL cause premature failure. Just a heads up.
