Are you trying to eliminate tt movement while camping
Or just to keep trailer from rolling?

If you're talking about X-chocks I would buy 1 for each side. That's what I have I and I think they work well.

If you're talking about regular wheels chocks you won't reduce movement hardly at all.

always buy a pair. doing only one side won't be worth the expense.

Yeah I just got the X chocks as a christmas present. Haven't used them yet but will be next week hopefully! To eliminate the movement while camping do what bikendan suggests and go with 2. You'll still have movement if you only chock the one side.

We use a pr of Bal wheel locks and still had a little movement until I installed a scissor jack on each side of the 2 x 4 cross tube in front of the front axle. That stopped the movement entirely. These jacks remain on the trailer during towing and are welded to a bracket that is bolted to the tube.
