I suppose you could. You could also change the passenger side tire on your tow vehicle by jacking up the drivers side wheel up high enough but its probably not the best way.
The folks on the other forums are putting a lot of stress on the tire, axle, frame, suspension, etc. trying to level the trailer with one wheel. The manufacturer put tandem and sometimes triple axles under their trailer for a reason...weight distribution.
Do it right and raise both tires at once. You don't necessarily need a plank that spans both wheels. I use the Lego blocks and stick one between the wheels and one in front or in back. When you back over them both tires will levitate evenly.
