I use the yellow "lego" style blocks. They are stackable, just the right size to fit in between tires, and you can get them cheap when on sale. One thing I learned, try to use two if you can. Most importantly, on loose gravel or stone use them upside down. This will stop debris from getting stuck in the bottoms. They are still structurally sound.

I am thinking 2x8 boards - keep reading the plastic kits break easily when not on concrete/asphalt.

Question:
1) Anyone have any opinions on leveling methods (what do you use)?
2) For 2x8, what would be a good length for the boards? I dont have the TT yet, so I am not sure how long I should cut them..

--Mikeg1970
I have been using this method forever...1 piece 66" and another one 72" if one 's not enough.
Cheap and effective !

Also, I cut one in half. Then you don't waste a full one at the back or the front, if you have to go up more than 3 rows. You can use both halves on two separate rows.

I have used boards, Lynx and Anderson. Anderson is the best IMO.

We have the Anderson levers. They're super easy to use and don't take up much room for storing. We have a 2015 ROO21DK.

I have two pressure treated 2x8s for the tires. I use Lynx Levellers for the stabilizers and a few assorted pieces of PT wood for the tongue jack. The only negative with the wood is having to put it away wet but they get stuffed in the truck bed where that doesn't matter. The smaller pieces are kept in a thick plastic garbage bag.

I've used pieces of wood, lynx squares but I now have Anderson Levels and the are the best. They are infinitely adjustable from 3/4" to 4".

I level my trailer by holding a level against the side, so I had to teach my wife how to read a level.

2015 233s - leveling opinions?

I don't doubt that the Andersen Levelers work great, but I can pay for a campsite for a week for the price of 2 of them. PT wood is MUCH cheaper. Call me old fashioned....or a cheapskate!

I have used pt lumber scraps from decks for years. Cut up 8 2x8 and 8 pieces of decking cut into 16 inch lengths, this gives you the choice of three different heights. I use 8 as this gives enough length side by side to cover the tandem wheels. All of the pieces fit into a milk case which is easy to carry and store in back of TV.
