X-Chocks For Prime Time's Wide Axles

I always liked using X-chocks to help stabilize the trailer when camping, but the one's I own are useless with Prime Time's E-Z Tow wide axles.

I had intended making my own this winter and never got around to it. I found some DIY instructions using 4x4's. They were for the normal tire spacing, but I was going to try and cut the length of the 4x4's to fit.

There aren't many places that I could find that sell the The Bal X-Tended Tire Locking X-Chocks, but I did find a pair for $162.95, including shipping (can't recall the web site). A seller on ebay had a pair for $196.95, including shipping. I made an offer and ended up paying $152.95 including shipping for the pair. Ordered on friday, they shipped on monday and I received them today. That's pretty good considering I used standard shipping. Everything was as ordered and in new condition.

Here's a link to the ebay site if anyone is interested; BAL X-Tended Tire Locking X-Chock For Rv Camper New - eBay (item 230590958176 end time Mar-28-11 12:26:35 PDT)

Thanks for posting. I was looking for a better way as I had always used Roto-choks, but of course those will not work on the LaCrosse.

If your thinking about buying a set you might try calling Tweety's and/or RV Wholesalers. I didn't find any on their web site, but they may be able to get them for you at a decent price. Make sure they're the X-Tended Fit.

I didn't think about calling until after I bought.

I was searching a few weeks ago and found these sites to order from. I see grhodes50 had luck on e-bay. I have not ordered mine yet but, this style are the best I've used so far. Camping World doesn't carry them yet.

Gary, how well do they work? I've been reading about them but would like to hear first hand how much they stabilize the trailer.

Just picked up our new Crusader 290RLT a few weeks ago (first 5'er). Just sitting in the driveway waiting for the snow to go away.

do you need two of these (one each side) or just one set?

Alright!! Another PT Crew Member!

Congrats and welcome!

I use the X-chocks on both sides. They will not stop all movement completely, but they do make a difference.

Good luck and happy camping!
