Levels for 5th wheel

Anyone have a recommendation for an add on system to help level a 5th wheel. So many choices out there and we would love to have some recommendations. Thanks.

I see now, sorry.

We ask the dealer about adding them and then decided after hearing the price that if and when we buy another trailer we will have them installed at the factory, several dollars cheaper.

Are you referring to something like the LevelUp or BigFoot systems? Auto level? Definitely lots to chose from, but most can be added. Kind of a matter of preference. We've had HWH, BigFoot and the Level Up. Can't say one is really any better than the other. They all have their pros and cons.

Thanks for the feedback. Right now just looking for a recommendation on a simple level system not a leveling system. Sorry I did not make my request clear.

Do you want to be able to see it from your TV seat?

I use a bubble level and spend a little time walking back and forth but I good with that part.

I just put it in the bottom of the fridge.

I know there are some that are larger than the one I posted but I'll be hanged if I can find them right now.





If I can recall the brand name I will post it.

I mounted one of these on our Sandpiper last summer after we got it. It works really good.

Our previous FW had came with one of these mounted on the front cap. While it worked really good...I could not bring myself to put screws thru the front cap on the Sandpiper. Hoppy 04025 Plastic Rear View Level for Travel Trailer or 5th Wheel | eBay

And like Ford Idaho, I like the level in the bottom of the fridge since leveling the fridge is really the most important thing to focus on getting level.

I went with the cheapo two pack of little stick on bubble levels, which work but can be hard to see, soon as I can I'll be getting one of the big ball levels for the pinbox.
