36QBOK Wheel Chocks

I am looking to get some proper chocks for my 2013 36QBOK. I am looking between the BAL X-Chock and the Roto-Chock. Does anyone have some feedback on these two products? I am leaning towards the X-Chock due to price, but has anyone used them? Do they fit proper?

Thanks!

RotoChock all the way. The spacing between my wheels is extremely close (like an inch and a quarter). I'd be surprised if many other brands fit it.

I used both...RotoChoks I have now...worth the money, very smooth operation and you get to get them custom sized to your particular wheel gap, I'd spend the few extra dollars and go Roto

Thanks guys - I'll have to go measure the size that I need. Unless you guys know which ones to buy?

If the Bal X chock fits, they are great. Why spend the extra $? The whole point is to lock the wheels and one doesn't do it any better than the other. They both work great.

Sometimes we just like things a little more refined OC...

LOL...you telling me I'm the only guy here who pays for pure oxygen to be pumped into my site at the campgrounds so I get the "freshest" air!

That's good to know - I had heard a rumor that the x-chocks wouldn't fit; that may make my decision easier, as I would prefer to keep the money for a 42 gal tote-along.

FYI
On our Sabre 32rcts the xchocks did not fit...gap between tires was too small so I ordered the Rotos...not all Sabre wheel spacings are identical so yours may work fine with the xchocks...

What is the minimum spacing that a x-chock would fit between?

I believe there are two, maybe three, sizes of x-chocks. My friend has a Bigfoot, and the tires are close together. He has a very compacted set that gets into narrow places. May be a different brand, but looks very similar to BAL x-chocks. They also make "extended fit" x-chocks that fit tires that are farther apart than normal. I don't know the specific dimensions for these.

Just found it on their site - fits down to 1-3/8" spacing. I just ordered a set from Amazon for $49/ea. Can't wait to get the trailer out soon! (still too much snow and too cold here for me)
