X-Chocks for Salem 282RK

I've been looking for the X-Chocks to help stabilize the TT when parked. Regular wheel chocks don't quite cut it, so I've heard from other owners that putting the X-Chocks between the tires on each side helps reduce the back and forth motion considerably. The problem is that all the ones I have found only have an extension of about 12" between the tires. The Salem Hemisphere 282 has the wider axle spacing (which helps in towing) but has over 15" between the tires.

Does anyone know of a source of the X-Chocks that will extend out to fit the spacing of the wider spaced axles?

Get the X-tended X-chock. We have a Wildwood Heritage Glen, which is the sister line to your Hemi, and use one X-tended X-chock placed on whatever side we need to raise for side-to-side level. Works great! The other side gets my homemade version of Fastway's One-Step that I made many years ago.

Ox, read your original question and every post thereafter (skip the one about using X-chocks to raise your trailer) and you'll see the answers to both your questions in this post.

thanks everyone,
I guess I wanted to know the manufacturer and how to purchase from the mfg.
Amazon is not a manufacturer and I haven't had good results from buying like that.
Nevertheless, I appreciate the help.
