Since my TT is dual axle I would have to use two, do you think it would make it twice as hard?
I also recommend the Anderson system if power isn't an option. With your situation, I would think you could put a large leveler like for a 5th wheel on the drivers side of the camper you could see out the mirror, get out 1 time, put the anderson's down, adjust it with the large level you could see from your side mirror and that would be it.
When you back up onto the levelers with your expedition, its really not much different than going up a hill on a city street or even perhaps a slightly inclined entry into a driveway, it doesn't have to overcome anything the size of a curb. The tire starts at 0" and only raises to 4" after traveling a little over a foot. You can also drive forward onto them, which your Expedition will have a lower gear for.
In case you haven't seen it, this video shows what you will have to do. Definitely no "hopping" onto the levelers.
