If it cannot handle xchocks than I would hate to see it have a few hundred miles on some of these US roads...

Unless people are extremely over tightening them...

I used the X-Chocks on my Rockwood, which I sold, and the One Step on my Heartland, so it is hard to do a direct comparison. The X-Chocks lock the tires but are harder to install and you are supposed to chock first. I can't see any fore and aft movement with the One Step when people walk around in the trailer, so in that regard it seems to do the job. I don't you can expect any chocks to do any more than that to stabilize. I'm thinking of adding some scissor jacks just in front of the wheels to eliminate some of the bounce caused by chassis, spring and tire flexing.

I chock, then disconnect, then install the X-chocks.

No matter what you may do relative to the tires and wheels, you are still at the mercy of the suspension, which you can't "lock." The only thing you can do to deal with that is using stabilizers or jacks directly on the frame. That typically involves a larger expense and additional work to set up and take down.

So do whichever works best for you.

Do X-Chocks really help? I am thinking of getting a pair as I have heard one set isn't enough?

Get 2 and use one on each side.

X2. x-chocks do make a very noticeable difference on the movement (rocking and sway) after they are tightened. I used 2 on my 21SS for 3 years and never had any issues. My new unit has the spread axle design so I'm interested to see if the xtended x-chock make it just as stable as the old style. If you do decide to buy them, check around as the prices vary widely. The dealer gave me pricing of $85 each for the xtended but I found them for $55 online through a google search. same goes for the regular x-chocks.

I think rather than spend $110, I would try to come up with a way to modify the regular ones to fit the spread axles, but that's just me being cheap!

The thought occurred to me but sold the old ones for $65 so the new ones didn't hurt my wallet so much.
