After second thought, I'm not sure I see the point of this. You're only gaining about a inch or two of height. What is wrong with the factory landing pads? Why not just make them wider if its an issue of them sinking. I'm baffled ???????

From my perspective, it is the metal feet have a tendency to slide around on gravel and concrete while they sink into grass and dirt.

I always use a 12x12x2 wood pad under the stabilizers and front landing gear.
Getting to be a PITA as I get older crawling under the camper to set and retrieve them. I had originally thought of putting screw eyes in the side and using an awning hook to push them in and pull them out; but OC's idea intrigued me. It moves the pads from the truck bed to exactly where they need to be.

Not trying to gain height, in fact with the Lynx blocks I lost about 3/8"-1/2". Originally wanted something to keep the pads from leaving rust spots on the concrete and increase the footprint on soft ground. The wood worked great for 5 yrs, but was in need of replacement, so this is what resulted from all but one suggestion on the forum. Light weight, rustproof, rot proof and longevity (I hope) and self storing.
