Wheel Chocks

My new Coachman has a wide axle stance compared to my older camper.
Is this an option to support the trailer or is there a better one?
Thanks, Les....

I have a 320bhds and love the BAL x-chocks. They come in XL for wide axles. Very stable.

Wouldn't the Bal style be hard on a tire, especially if left pinched against the tire for a longer period of time?
It looks like the Fastway is a simpler system, no tools required.

the X-chock just takes a moderate amount of pressure to be very effective. Even if you crank on it, you won't put as much pressure on the tire as the trailer is

Roto chock will make them to order. Not cheap, but many think the best.

Chocks

I am using the BAL x-style chocks for wide stance axles. AdventureRV.Net generally has the best price on them. This will be the 3rd season using them and have had no problems.

I ended up buying them on ebay, true Adventure was a couple bucks cheaper but I didn't have to create another account etc.
Thanks...
