Interesting wheel blocks

Got an e-mail ad from one of the big online RV retailers. Still trying to figure out how to use this, but it looks awesome!

I would imagine that the tire stops snap in place.

It looks like the "Stop and Chock" by Lynx Levelers. You stack your leveling blocks and put a Stop and Chock on one end. Drive onto the levelers and the S&C will stop you when you get it. You can add a second S&C at the other end, but you can't really get it tight. I have 2 of the S&B and really like them, but I only use one to stop the trailer and use a regular wheel chock on the other end.

Those chocks will work well for "chocking" the wheels, but will not prevent the trailer from moving while set-up at a camp site.
Most people want a chocking set-up that will help prevent movement while walking around in the trailer. A clamping type wheel chock is best for this, whether it be homemade or store bought.

What do you think?

I think that's why someone would have 8 kids. They lift the TT while dad slips the 2nd chock in place. Course when it's time to feed 'em he's gotta send a couple out to rustle a cow for lunch. :hihi:
