I don't think the regular x-chocks will work with that gap, it looks too large ... don't know what size the extended ones will cover, ... I use the regular x-chocks and swear by them, ... they are all I use, no wedge chocks, ... saying that, I'm going to go get the popcorn and wait for the show to start, ....

Thanks for the comment. I don't judge what someone else does with their camper. Heck.. I don't always agree with the way I do things.

Holy Widetrack Tirescrubbing Suspension Batman?



Those look even wider than what I am used to seeing. The extended X chocks might not be enough, I think they go up to 17", sure looks more than that.

Can anyone advise where the 17 inch measurement is taken? Closest point between the tires? Bottom of the tires?

I donít know if this helps. The ones I got say they go from 3.5 to 17 inches. I donít know if that means tires 17 inches apart from the closest points. Mine are x-large. Tires are 14 inches apart. Here is a picture.

My former TT had the regular (?) axle width. My newer TT has those spread axles. The former C chicks would not fit so I had to buy "extended" C chicks, they work.

I have a 34ft spread axle Vibe and I use the extended x chocks, they work well, do not substitute these for wheel chocks, use both
