Sort of X chock

Inexpensive homemade chock. Been working well for years. 4" pvc sewer pipe, a couple hex nuts and washers a 1/2" threaded rod, and a wingnut. Less than $8 to make 2. The space between wheels isn't much in my case and wasn't sure I'd find a ready made product to work as I wanted.Click image for larger version

You might be OK with the improvised Xchocks.... but those tires could kill you any moment... ha ha

I see you've noticed the OEM tires Iwannacamp. Yeah, I've read stories, not sure what to believe. Been lucky so far I'd guess, and real diligent on checking tire pressures B/4 each trip. Hate to turn this into a tire thread, but it's always on my mind.

I did a similar homemade pair of X chocks using stainless steel rod and a piece of pressure treated 4x4.

Good idea and thanks for sharing.
Enjoy seeing what others have done for the pleasure of RV'ing.
