That does work. I use mine under tires on one side also to level left to right. I never need it that thick so I bring @8 of the plywood pieces to stack as needed.
Watch out for nails and screws if the pieces separate.

I have 3 sets of the orange plastic blocks (10 packs) and use the all the time. I put some under the stabs and tongue jack and have stacked them for wheel leveling. They are light, store easy, and are strong. They are much lighter than wood and don't absorb water.

8X8 pieces of 3/4" plywood. I carry 12 of them. Where I park for storage, I have a couple of 2X12X 6' PT lumber to keep the tires off the ground. They help me get the trailer back in the same spot each time, too.

One of our local parks doesn't allow the plastic leveling pads - you are required to use wood. Their reasoning is that in the heat of the day, the weight of your TT or MH will "press the plastic" into the asphalt. They even have a stack of wood by the ranger station for you to replace the plastic with.

We carry 1 x 6's with us and have stapled a "handle" on one side made out of ski rope and made a pusher/puller out of PVC pipe for ease of placement/removal under the jacks of our MH.
