Wheel width on 2504s

The wheel spacing on my recently purchased 2504s has got me baffled. I can no longer use my x chock as it is too wide to insert between tires. I found another x type chock from winfield which I believe will work. My issue now is with what material/product to use to level side to side. If I use lynx leveler blocks I can only go 2 blocks high because of the limited spacing between tires. Of course I could set the blocks behind both tires and drive backwards until the tires are resting on their appropriate blocks. That seems like a pain as I would have to make sure my measurement between the blocks I setup are exactly lined up with bottom of each tire. I do not want to carry a bunch of wood with me and do not want to get concrete pad sites everytime I go camping to be perfectly level when I pull in. Anyone have this problem? Any suggestions? My tires are literally like 3 inches apart at their closest point. I will respond to any comments if more info is needed. I would appreciate some input. Thanks.

I looked at the anderson levelers. They are definitely on my short list. I have to look at the specs. I bet I would have to saw one down a bit to fit between the tires. Thanks for the quick response.

If you do all you need to do is cut off the lower (thick end) corner.

Like so.

We've just used the yellow leveling blocks. Stacked them up to needed height and long enough for both tires to fit on them. I purchased the Anderson levelers and had to cut them back to fit. However I've not had a lot of luck as they seem to slide on gravel?? So they sit in storage and haven't been used again. It's likely operating error����

May have to trim the Anderson's a little more. Some have cut the leading edge off about 1"-2". The 2nd picture shows even more trimmed from the back corner. Trim both of them so you don't have to sort them. I also ran a rope thru the small hole and tied the wedge to the ramp so they don't get separated.

Ok thanks everyone. I really appreciate the responses. I have two weeks until her maiden voyage so I will try to work it out.

I'm not sure what your issue is with this. It's what I've been doing with my Camco blocks. You put 4 on the bottom in front of the front tire, then build them up. You might need to purchase another set of blocks if you need to go up higher than a couple rows. I have two sets, and I cut one block in half. That's lets me "end" a row twice with a half block, instead of having to use 2 full blocks. My BAL X-chocks also fit. (I think my tires are 2 3/4" apart. Same on both my Roo and my Mini Lite)
