I have a cheapie 8" level (or whatever it is) I keep in the cabinet that's right inside the door. Like everyone else, I'm not going to spend the extra time to get it absolutely perfect. If the fridge door is not behaving obscenely it's good enough for me.

I just use the little stick-on myself. Leveled the trailer and then put them on showing level. Even if they are off a little, it's not a big deal.

I go by the front corner levels screwed into the TT sides. I keep it a little high in the front (keeps my head slightly elevated in bed, and helps prevent water from the shower running over the side onto the floor), and a little high on the side opposite the bathtub drain (to facilitate draining of bathwater, and to allow the bathroom door to stay in the open position).

I use a 2ft level on the front tongue as I am leveling and it has been darn accurate both ways. Then I do the door test with our bedroom and entry door . If they stay open when I open them then we are good

If you have an I Phone the compass has a level on the 2nd page. (Swipe to the left. I just place it on the counter. I gives you +/- level in degrees and when it's level the whole page turns green!

I started out with the stick on levels but they apparently overheated in the sun and now all I have is 2 adhesive pads that are in need to clean off. I picked up a 9" magnetic torpedo level that will stay on the back bumper when I'm leveling side to side and that seems to work fine. I've checked it with my 4' big level and no real difference in the readings. Just go with what works for you.

By far the easiest I have found...Hoppy 09715 RV Level. Mounted right on the tongue by the jack. Tells me how far I need to raise whichever side is lower.

I guess I'm the odd one. I have a short (7 or 8"?) level that I put on the frame close to the coupler and use that.

I know it's not perfect, but the interior seems pretty level when I use it, fridge door works fine, oil in a pan on the stove is reasonably centered, and not rolling out of bed, so I guess it's good enough.

I have been thinking of putting a big screw-on level to the front of the trailer, but I can't bring myself to drill holes in the end cap...

I used one of the small round levels inside the fridge to get the trailer all leveled out, then stuck a set of stick in levels at the front drivers corners.

I set ours about 1/2" low in front, and about level side to side which usually results in a slight drop to the slide side once the trailer "settles" some. Helps keep shower water from running into the floor, and the a/c run off away from the door side.

Though that Hoppy tongue level looks interesting!!!
