Graduated front/back levelor for camper

Has anyone used one they like? Twice this summer, I've been in a campsite that actually seemed pretty level and after pulling the car away, I found the front of the camper was too low even though I had the tongue fully extended and on a big block of wood. I see a Hopkins one that has two (one for side to side and one for front/back) and a Camco one that is evidently big enough to see in rearview mirror. I really don't want to have to use screws. And want one that will corresponds to how many inches the front will have to be raised.

I installed one of the large "see from your truck" levels on the front of our travel trailer. I used double sided automotive trim attachment tape, by 3M, and so far it is holding well. I also did not want to drill holes. I may seal around the edges with a silicone. The front of our trailer is fiberglass so it was a smooth surface.

I just use a 30 inch long carpenters level. Across the back bumper for side to side before unhooking and in the doorway for front to back after unhooking. I'm not a fan of screwing anything to the front or side of my TT. That and finding a place perfectly level for when you attach them.

I use the Hopkins leveler for the front/back level. I used double stick tape and mounted it on the curbside of the trailer. For side to side leveling I use a 24" carpenters level and plumb the sidewall, as I back onto my Andersen levelers.
