Windjammer chocks?????

Just picked up a 2016 Windjammer 3029W and the wheels are 28" outside diameter with only a 1.5 inch spacing between the tires. Can't seems to find any wheel chocks that tighten up with only a 1.5 inch spacing.

Have tried the standard yellow plastic chocks but I noticed the wheels will still rock back & forth a little. Would like something I can tighten up to lock the tires ( like the BAL Chocks).
Any help is appreciated.

If you don't find anything that works you could always make your own. Links:

BAL X-Chocks #28012 say they collapse to 1 3/8" so those should work for you.

I do have to wiggle mine into place, but they do fit.

Another X-Chock user on my Windjammer. They have to be closed all the way to fit in between the tires but they do.

======================

Went ahead and ordered a pair of BAL X-chocks.
Still can't figure out why Rockwood mounts their tires so close together???
