x-chock on both sides?

I use a single X-chock for stabilization purposes. Does anyone see a need to use an X-chock on both sides of the unit, or do you think one is enough to stabilize? My wife and I are split on this subject due to varying opinions on what one considers "stable" while inside the trailer.

Only you can decide what is stable enough for you. But, we use two.

We use two. Why wouldn't you want to stabilize the other wheel(s)?

They come in a set of two for a reason...

Use them both at the same time.

Do what makes your wife happy.


Happy wife, happy life.

I played around using just one and switching sides with the one. Concluded it was better with 2.

They do but are also sold singularly.

I use two. Why put all the pressure on one set of tires.
