I got the xchocks because I wanted less movement when in the camper and they do seem to help some.
For parking at home I use a couple of 4x4 chunks which when camping go under the stab jacks and I use a couple of yellow plastic wheel chocks plus the x-chocks.

It takes me no time to install the x-chocks...because my son does it for me! LOL

I bought a pair of x-chocks for my pop up. I got them for X-mas and have not used them yet but I think they will work great. I almost bought the yellow Camco kind but was unable to look at them in person and judge. The X-Chock seemed to have a better crank system.

Not looking to start a flame war here. Just saying that i think the X-chocks will work well.

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

we have the same as the link above and LOVE them, but we bought them thru amazon for cheaper. we used to use the chocks that you wedge under the tire but still had the wobble when walking inside. these take that wobble away better.
we also use these ,
we love these, it takes ALL the guess work out of leveling.

Like the X Chocks

I agree with others regarding the added stability especially from front to back motion. I notice many set-ups with wedges in which one or both of the Chocks are loose due to movement within the RV.

Remember that you don't have to have a fire before you pop a top!

I made a set of the 4x4 pipe clamp type, they work good......only had to cut crank handle down to have clearance under fender to floor.....can,t use with crank down....ground is in the way.......I like to have the wood far enough apart on the tires (up and down) so they do have enough leverage to be useful.

To stop movement in the camper, I make the wife sleep in a tent.
