Leveling Blocks?

Anyone have an opinion on this type of LEVELING BLOCK? I'm mostly looking for something to put under my Bigfoot jacks if parking on a concrete slab, but also for maybe building a small temporary ramp, or even support under the raised tires.

Any suggestions regarding a brand better than others? Ultra-fab... CAMCO?

Thanks,
Steve

Those look about the same as Lynx leveler blocks that we have used for years. And about the same price. Good investment!!
We use them under the jacks, under the tires, stack them and ramp them. Buy at least two packs.

If I carry something in the MH, I try to make it multi use. i.e. I carry a small assortment of 2x8 wood. I can use these under the tires for leveling, under a hydraulic jack if I need to change a tire. and if worst comes to worst, I can throw them on the camp fire.

I have a few different size 2x8's and 2x6's I keep in the storage bins. I think it works just as good as the blocks. I have used them to get the front 6-8 inches off the ground to get level with no issues.

I used two 4X4 cedar posts with a 2X8 wood block under the front legs with Lynx Leveling plastic blocks under the four rear legs. I like to keep the hydraulic rams as short as possible with out extending them to far. This keeps the rocking and the motion that you feel to a minimum in the trailer as you walk around.
