Sort of X chock
 
1 Attachment(s)
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.Attachment 214524

Such a good idea Campco kind of snatched it. :)

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.

???? thought this thread was from an individual sharing what was done for a wheel chock.

robbiels7 09-11-2019 07:28 AM

I made some of these for my old trailer too. may need to revisit, new trailer has barely enough room between tires to put in X chocks, these would fit better.
