Mine are even less....about 2 1/4". I might just wait to see if others have a problem before testing it on my own.

I ordered 10. I am taking 2 and have 2 others spoken for.
I know there is a guy in Cedar Springs that may take 2....Let me know
That would leave 6. They are $35 and if you can't pick them up I will need to charge you shipping. At this time I don't know if they will come in individual boxes that I can just ship out or if I will need to box them to send them out. I also don't know the weight. I am willing to ship them out and not add any handling fees or anything like that. They will be in maybe Friday but I am camping until Sunday so Monday we can work everything out. Message me so I can give you my phone number if you want any of the remaining 6.

Now I am wondering what else we can get a group buy at wholesale pricing????

I asked the company about wheel clearance and here is what they wrote back:

Around 3" between tires is where they fit easily in between the two tires. We did did have one case that there was only 2" between tires and the consumer had to cut an Inch off of the tip in order for It to fit. We have designed the camper leveler so that you can do this with no change to the performance.

Thanks for checking on that.

I don't see why not. I use mine after I level with the yellow blocks. No problems.

I bought mine just after the original post. I wish I had seen the $35.00 post sooner.

Anyways here is where I bought mine. I am yet to try them out.

They came in. They are induvidually boxed. They will also work as a chock. So far I am impressed.....too bad I missed them on my first camping trip.

Got mine today and they don't fit between the tires on my 21FBRS. I will likely cut the tip off one to see if it can work.

Did you try to put in flat on the ground between the tires?
You are supposed wedge it under one tire but have the other end angled up resting a little on the other tire. When you drive up on it....it drops down between them just fine. If your tires are close to 2" apart...then you might have to cut off a little on the tip.

So, I went to the lake for a few days and was able to use mine, they worked fine. I did have to angle mine up between the tires. When I backed off of them I did have to get it just right to pull it out.

Here is a couple of pic's.





And a couple other pic's while there.







The decal on the back of my trailer

They do work...I bought, well it was an Andersen Rapid Jack..looks to be the same thing only bigger...from etrailer. It's got an 8" lift on it. with a big bubble level where you can see it from inside the truck, all you have to do is stick it behind the low side and back up until it's level. Chock everything and done. I think I'm done with blocks.

From the pictures, it looks like they are barely wide enough for the tires?
I sure wouldn't want my tires hanging over the edge of these things for any length of time.
Why wouldn't they make them wider?

I used mine to help a fellow RVer change a flat today. I had him back up on it rolling onto a little taller block. No jacks involved. He stated, " I am going to have to get a couple of them". Sorry, no pic's

So Procedurally, you get to the site

get out of truck

put the 2 blocks in place.

get back in truck

back up till level ( or a little more to allow the wheel to equalize between the chock and the stop)

get back in truck and roll forward till stable

get out of truck

put in X-chocks or rotochoks or whatever.

unhook rig

TO REVERSE.

Get into truck

Hook up rig

back up a bit

get out of truck

pull front chocks

get back in truck

pull forward just enough to pull chocks

get out of truck

pull chocks

collapse.

To many steps.

I stick with the yellow jobs.
