I had to do something similar in a campground once. As long as you are not trying to raise both ends with the stab jacks it's OK. As long as it's choked good it should be safe. Lowering it would require a few sets of blocks to keep raising and lowering the tongue jack till it got near the ground.

I passed on many houses because of driveways like that. I couldn't imagine parking my car in that much of an angle let alone a trailer!

Better to have a bad day of camping than a good day at work!

Does anyone else see JUST two wood blocks in front of the wheels? I don't know if I would walk in front of it let alone inside it!

I used to park our previous Roo in our driveway that had a good slope to it. It looked similar to the pic but I had a strong support under the tongue jack. That thing doesn't even have a tongue jack!
Don't thing a tongue jack would help that much anyway. Got good cribbing But I would look at more of how the tires are blocked. Later RJD

That's what I was thinking, looks like firewood holding it back.
