Leveling Class C with Dual Rear Wheels

We have 2 sets of the yellow Lego block levelers and used them to raise the rear end on our trip this summer. We used all the blocks under both tires on both sides to raise the rear. It worked, no problem.

But in January we are parking at a spot in FL where I doubt the 1 1/2" rise we got before will be enough. So what do you use? Other than wood. There's no way I can use a saw and nails or screws or whatever. And my husband isn't well and can't either.

I've looked at Andersen. Is that the best option for more lift? Anything give good amount of lift that you can't drive off the end and drop 4"?

I use more "Legos". Each "layer" gives an inch of lift. I carry three sets of ten - haven't needed more yet. I find I can double the top layer - so a stack of three-two-one-one gives four inches lift with seven blocks, so I can lift all four rear wheels four inches with 28 blocks, and have two blocks left should I also need to raise one side of the front up to two inches for side-to-side leveling. Rarely need all of them.
FYI, Jim

Thanks JLeising. I'll do that. Wish I hadn't bought different brands as they don't fit each other. So splitting an additional set won't work. I'll have to buy 2 more sets. Oh well. That's cheaper than 4 Andersen ramps.

RE

I've used 2 sets of yellow blocks for the last 3 years and only one campground that I had to change sites. First of all the class C is generally lower in the front so I only use blocks in the the front I usually use ten blocks on each side and if one side is not even I reduce blocks on the side that's higher until the levels show me that I'm as close as I can get. A lot of sites are level side to side but the front always needs to be raised.
