They are pricey and I didn't buy them on impulse. it was several weeks before I pulled the trigger on buying them. I will tell you a Amazon trick. Go look at what you want on Amazon about once a week then sometimes, not all the time, Amazon will send you a discount code via email. That's when I bought them. Now I prefer a site about an inch low on one side because the Anderson Levelers help stabilize the trailer.

If you decide on the Andersen levelers, here is some info on how to trim them:

I use two 2x6 lumber about 4 feet long chamfered on one end. You can stack them up if needed. Also buy the leveling bubbles that you attach to the TT with 2 sided tape. I have four, two on the back two on the front; one on each side. The bubbles are calibrated so that you can tell how many inches height you have to add in order to level by looking at the lines on the level where the bubble touches. Putting slightly more torque on the low side stabilizers will easily account for half an inch or so if needed. Wood is cheap and easy. Graduate to plastic if you think you need it later.

Wooden boards work just fine. No need to buy any special items for leveling.

Other than it much more convenient and less room to store the Andersons than a bunch of boards. Cleaner also.

X2. In addition, I bought a 6" x 6" x 6' pressure treated post and cut it into 16" lengths for the stabilizers and tongue, when on a slope front -to-back.

I've used the yellow leveling blocks usually on dirt/gravel without issue for the last 3-4 years. Wish I could say the same about the yellow tire chocks I have a bad habit of running over

I have some custom PT blocks I use on the stabilizers and the hitch post.

I also have a 21DK. Can you share the dimensions after trimming one to fit between the wheels? I'd rather not use the trial and error approach.

Thanks
