I've got something very similar and they work fine. I've been told they limit some movement between axles, but I don't notice the difference either way...maybe because of my shorter trailer. The advantage for me is that they stop rolling in both directions with only one chock.

roto chocks work perfect. Not on floor of tire but in between tires.

They help to eliminate a lot of the fore aft trailer movement after setup. Have a pair of 'em, made a difference.

Yes for sure made a big difference. The grandkids movement was cut in half. I only got one going to get another as soon as I find enough bottles( mMichigan return) . We have a 2013 Roo 23ss just love it!

IMHO, yeah.

I use these:

Wheel Stop Chock - Camco 44622 - Chocks & Levelers - Camping World

Smaller, lighter, cheaper, but not as tough I suspect. I use them to stabilize the trailer, not to prevent rolling. Seems to help.

They make a big difference in reducing, notice I said reducing, not eliminating, the movement in the trailer with people walking and moving about. The rocking as some have posted. I was always told that they are not meant to act as a wheel chock if you are on a slight incline or uneven lot and that proper wheel chocks should still be used, so I use both....some have also said that to properly reduce movement you have to tighten them up pretty good, and I have that to be true. On the other hand some claim to have damaged tires by over tightening...this I find hard to believe that you could tighten it enough to cause that...any opinions on that?

I'll use an extra chock if im on an incline, but typically when I do the extra chocks aren't doing anything. I also heard about them damaging tires but who really knows. This is my 2nd TT i've used the same set on and they have been awesome. Still a lot of movement in walking around in the TT, but they chock it well.
