Wheel Chock Question..

So I am looking into a chock for my Roo 2011 233s. I have seen BAL X Chock, Roto Chock and the yellow plactic triangle screw type. My question is that I noticed that alot do not fit due to the Roo having a small 2in distance from the duals. I was also reserarching and on the market to make my own using 4x4's and all-thread to save myself the $110.00 deneros. I am looking for what other "233s" users are using, thanks for the input.

Don't know about other Roo owners, but I built my own with a piece of 4x4 and some threaded rod. I did use Fir 4x4, because it is straight, and I think looks nicer. It was also left over from another project. I just held the 4x4 up where I wanted it to hit the tires, drew a line, and headed for the chop saw. Worked for me. Think my angle was around 31 degrees, your angle may be different.

I also made myself a set from 4x4's. Cut them at 30 degrees. A 36 " piece of all thread cut in half worked out just right. Haven't used them yet, but for the cost I think they will be fine.

Cost me $12 and an hour of my time.
Been using them for 5 years.

I use the BAL 28012 X-Chock Tire Locking Chock. $77. These fit between the wheels on my 2012 Shamrock 233s. They are slimmer than others and fit gaps from 1 3/8"-10".

4x4 with threaded rod ,2nd season and works great... I do need to spray some lube on the rod from time to time as mine stay on the tires whenever it is sitting still... I think i used 5/8 rod ,not sure but the nut is the same size as the stab jacks and that helps as i use the same ratchet wrench to snug up the jacks and i dont need multiple wrenches for the camper...

X2 on the X-chocks. They fit between the tires on a 233S and do a good job. Have been happy with them.

Thanks for the help, I'm going to lookin into getting X chocks now that I know they will fit with my 223s. However for 20 bucks I might as well attempt to make my own and see how I like it.
