I use the yellow plastic ones. I have a steep driveway and an incline in my back yard where it park my trailer at the end of the driveway. No problem with them. I did forget to put them behind my back wheels one time and trailer almost rolled into the creek behind my house. Tongue jack managed to dig into the dirt and gravel. Now I have a check list to try to keep such things from happening.

The yellow chocks have an end date stamped into them. Maybe get brittle at that point.

I use between the wheel chocks and a piece of wedge shaped wood if I don't have the tires too far up on leveling blocks

X-Chox a big yes! I had to get the extra width one for my MB 21 because of the wider spaced tandem axles, but love them! Not only do they absolutely prevent any rolling, but because they don't even allow any "rocking" of the tires, they provide a noticeable stability when you're inside! The tongue jack always allows some front-to-back rocking...the Xchox stop this.

Another handy trick...if you're unhooking on an incline and worried about your trailer taking off before you can chock it, pull out your emergency breakaway cable! This will (should) lock up your trailer brakes even if you're unhooked. You should be performing this test routinely anyways. Just remember to pop it back in after you're done chocking or it'll drain your battery!
