Side-to-side leveling device for single axle TT

I found this leveling device while searching some product information for one of our members.

http://norcoind.com/bal/products/con...eleveler.shtml

If it's not expensive, and doesn't weigh as much as the blocks I use, I'll probably get one.


Edit: The reviews on them are excellent, but for $70 (thereabout) I'll keep using my blocks.

You put it around the wheel and raise the side of a 4000 lb trailer by hand using the ratchet? Really?

We have used one of these for the last several years on a pop-up and they do work extremely well. Easy to level and also acts as a chock. You can use a drill instead of the hand crank if you like. We have since moved to a dual axle TT and it will not work on this rig.

Coworker has one for his PU, and loves it! I wonder what the load rating is, just curious if you could use it with a 17Z or a similar TT.

I had one and used it on all three of our pop ups. I highly recommend it. No more backing in and pulling forward onto wood to level side to side. Just park, slide it under low side tire and start cranking it up. Also helps in stabilizing the camper. Just be sure and keep the threaded shaft lubed up really well. Mine striped out over the years but I contacted BAL and they sent me a new one free of charge. Well worth the money in my book.

I have had one for 8 years or so. The won't give you a weidht rating, but I use it with my 17Z and I used it with my PU. The only down side of it is that the threaded bar has to be kept greased. The up side is you can park where you want, level exactly and it is also the best wheel chock I have ever used. Even if I am on a level surface I snug the lever up against the trailer to minimize wiggling.

I highly recommend it, used it on 2 PUPS and worked great. Just back in, slide it under the low side and crank it until the PUP is leveled. It also helps with the k side to side movement.
