Have you thought about driving in, excavating the driveway and just have a pit so to speak to get level?

Yes, I have thought of that too. But the driveway is poured concrete and there are stairs off one side so it couldn't be lowered there, which is exactly where I park. And making the lower part steeper so I can level out the upper part wouldn't work either, because I already hit bottom when the trailer hitch is in place. Sucks!

I had an crushed concrete extension added to the side of our driveway,,,
So we would have a level place to store our MH when we are not using it !!!
But we have over 2 acres,,, I know not all have that option !!!

Lucky you! I live in the suburbs and have only 1/4 acre. The front yard slopes in 2 directions, so even sideways wouldn't work. And access to the back yard, where there is a level area, is too narrow.

It is good to be above the Road or Street,,,
Less chance of flooding !!!

No such luck! My (finished) basement got flooded 3 times in July from runoff from the hill above me.

Or maybe move it to another piece of land? LOL
I built a retaining wall to reroute the runoff, so far so good. I love the house, only the topography sucks. But at least here I don't have a Home Owners Association who wouldn't allow an RV (even motor homes) at all, I had that before and that's why I moved.
