I would look at these: Fiamma Inc. - Products

They are rated for serious weight and some of them have a nice lift to them (Jumbos).

Levelers?

Another vote for the Anderson Levelers! So quick and easy to use!

I also have the Baylock EZ-100 for a jack when changing tires. Haven't had to use it yet, but it is rugged and fairly light weight.

Another +1 for the Andersens. They are really easy to use, and solid once wedged. Those Camco's linked look like the TT could easily roll back down if not solidly chocked. The Andersens do both (although I still chock the wheels opposite.

I use the Anderson as well. I have a bubble on the front of the trailer that I can see in the mirror. I just put the leveler down and back up or pull forward, depending on how I want to chock it, until the bubble shows level. Easy peasy. It allows me to set up the trailer while the wife and kids are off exploring.

The only downside is that you only get the 4" of lift from the leveler. If you need more than that it's difficult to get more. I learned this the hard way on our last trip. I was trying to put the leveler on top of the Anderson Tuff Pads and that was a nightmare as the leveler just kept sliding off the pads. Then when I got it on there wasn't room on the pad for the chock. I had to put down another pad ext to it to try and get the chock secured. It ended up sliding anyways and being off level by about a half degree. I also never felt like it was truly secure. I'm going to try a 18" long 2x6 next time.

Those look awesome. Just over 5" of lift and you get 2 for the price of one of the Andersons. If I didn't already have the Andersons I would get in a heart beat.

I stumbled on them by accident. If my Lynx start cracking these are next on my list.

We love the Anderson Levelers! Not only does it make set up fast and easy, it cuts down on the set up tension that use to occur when I would have to back up to have the de put another board down or remove a board.

The Anderson are very expensive here in Canada. The Fiammas look very similar to the Camcoe Tri Levelers.

I am confused if either will work with a tandem axle trailer, or is it OK just to raise one axle?

Should use one leveler per axle.

If you want an all-in-one kit including a jack for changing tires on tandem axles, Andersen also has a kit that comes in a bag. Have not had to change a tire yet, but based on my use of the Andersen levelers, with a battery impact wrench the drive on drive off jack would certainly speed up a tire change at the side of the road. Can't comment on whether they are better or worse than the Baylock jack, but I do like that it all packs into the supplied bag.
