Uneven driveway

My driveway has a decent amount of pitch side to side. When my trailer is parked the driver's side is approximately 4 inches lower than the passenger side which causes a problem because the roof drains are on the passenger side. I want to build a platform so when I park it's automatically level and i don't have to mess around with blocks and such. My question is does it matter what type of material I use to fill the box or should i build like a mini deck?
Thanks in advance

Keep it simple, use whatever will support the weight and won't be an eyesore when you move your trailer out

Mine is 4" of slope also and what I did was bolt 3- 4x4s together and put plywood under the 4x4s to hold it all together and a little ramp in front. It's almost 11:00 PM so in the AM I'll take a pic and post.

As you can see the 3 4x4s ( you can't see the 5/8" plywood ) that is underneath and screwed to the 4x4s. The ramp in front is just 6x6s,the top ramp is screwed to the bottom one and nothing slides.

One additional thing I can tell is that your new hybrid will have roof drains on both sides. At least our X20E does.

Tunce, i may have to do something similar. The DW was less than enthused about the idea if a mini deck on our driveway.
And yes, it does indeed have drains on both sides!
