Do you have problems with yours sinking?
No, we haven't had any problems with sinking. We just want a little bigger footprint on rocks, etc. Just ordered the large stabilizer jack pads with handles, so that should help.

I guess a few 10" pieces of 2x10 thrown in a milk crate is too country eh?

No.That works fine. Plus the fact you can use that also under your wheels, if the leveler takes them off the ground.

I would go for the 12" foot pad AND a few 2x12s.

The area of a 9" foot pad is 254.48 square inch.
The area of a 12" foot pad id 452.40 square inch. You almost double the area, thus almost cut the psi in half on those pads, less sinking... (58psi vs 33psi)

Here is how I see it..

Snap pads are $26.25 ea delivered vs $33 for 12" foot (delivered?)
They increase your footprint to 420 sq. in. verses 452 sq. in. for 12 inch foot pad.
They don't rust.
They are green, made from recycled tires, in the USA.
Don't need to carry a milk cart full of 2x12's that take up space in storage and can get really dirty.
Don't need to do anything at a park that requires something under your pad.
Nice when when weather is bad for speed of setup and tear down.
They look nice and are substantial.

I just think they are a good option but different strokes for different folks

Our usual campground has asphalt pads in the full hookup section. Right now we use several 2x6's and/or 4x4's even if I don't need the added height. You can see where others haven't used any type of pad under their jacks with the smaller footprint and they've sunk into the soft asphalt on a hot day. It's a lot like the motorcycle riders who don't carry a pad for their kickstand on a hot day. I just consider it common courtesy even when it's not requested. I'll be switching to the plastic pads by next year but the wood has served us well so far and it's pretty convenient.

I'm curious on the area math on the pads folks are talking about. How does a 12" pad have 452 sq ins? When I went to school, area = pi x radius^2 for a circle or side x side for a square. That gives you either 113 sq ins or 144 sq ins. Am I misunderstanding something? Just curious!

It's even less than that isn't it? 3.14 times (4.5x4.5) = 64 sq in. In my post about snap pads are I just used the earlier posters numbers....
