I use the Leveler blocks instead of a BAL because of the simplicity, lower costs, and lighter weight of the blocks. I do not use trial and error, though.
At the RV dealer, I came across curved bubble levels that were calibrated in inches. I leveled the trailer, and installed one cross-wise on the front lower section of our A122. When we arrive at the campsite, I back or pull into position and look at the level to see how many blocks I need (1" = 1 block). I stack the correct number of blocks right behind the low tire (I also carry piece of 1x10 wood for less than 1" situations or fine tuning the stack), and back onto the stack. Comes out level every time, no help needed. Chock the wheels with the plastic chocks and I'm done. Takes longer to type than to do.
I do not have dual wheels, so the stack is simpler. I'm not knocking the BAL; it just seems like overkill for our situation. For dual wheels close together, I have seen an X-shaped device to level and chock.
The Leveler blocks are also useful under the stabilizers or the tongue jack post (I use a round piece of 3/4" ply under the jack post on top of a block or two). Wal-Mart has a nylon carrying case of 10 blocks for around $30.
