I use as little as possible. Usually only up to 1/2 inch plywood under a 2x6 cut to about 12" in length. Only the amount needed to fit between the dual wheels, i.e., place one in front of each wheel to either back up or pull on. Anymore than that I look for a flatter spot.
I use about a 12x12 under the stabilizers if on soft surfaces. Hard surfaces don't need anything.

I have 1x12's and 2x12's cut into cut into 12 inch lengths that I use for leveling. I always put wood blocks under the rear stabilizers so that I don't have to lower them as much.

I use air bags that I made based on the level-airs since they are out of production...

Before that I used home made wood blocks that interlock like lynx do.

i use the big yellow lego blocks( 1"x12"x12")
two under the front jack pads always
a set long enough to roll up on to keep the rubber off the concrete or gravel or soft sand if we are staying a while.
if we are staying just one or two nights then i forego the wheels and just use em if we are way off level
for the rear stabilizers i use about 5 each side so i dont have em extended in a long skinny configuration
plus we have a bunch of 4x6 blocks about 10" long to build up under the rear stabs if we are in a weird place, and assorted 2" x 6" pieces for that really weird site

I've always used wood under the stab jacks. For leveling, I cut 2x6" leveling boards in a step-like formation. I stacked up what I needed and backed onto them.

Now, my trailer sits on cement blocks.

personal experience, but I have a assortment of wood from 2x4x??, 2x10x??, chunk of railroad tie, 6x6x8, yellow leveling blocks, and wheel chocks. I live in WV so u have to be prepared, not much flat land. I have found the best way to level is side to side first and then front to back. I do put wood under the stabalizers because mine have such a small footprint, usually a 2x12x??.
