blacktop drives

Curious if everyone just throws down some plywood under tires when leaving the camper on asphalt for long periods of time, or even short ones. Was torn between something like treated plywood or some sort of thick rubber base.

New driveway last season and there are already two ruts from tires and prolonged idle

A pair of treated 2 x 10s side by side maybe 5ft. Long. Easier to hit when I bac k in . Flip them once In a while. One side doubled up so tt sits almost level and we can use it if we want

2 ft square of 3/4" treated plywood would spread out the foot print pressure and it's light enough to easily handle.
