The drive way need not be level, just an even surface at any angle...

Usually the floor line of a Class C is evident from the outside of the vehicle. Take a measurement at the front floor to ground and another at the rear floor to ground. In my case there is a 4 inch difference (rear 4 inches higher then the front).

Then measure from the front to back, in my case it was 240 inches.

Now use the 1 in 60 rule which states "an arc of 1 inch in 60 inches will produce a 1 degree angle".

So, in my case 4/240 = x/ 60 Solve x = 1 degree.

My Greyhawk was way off when we took delivery of it. After an alignment it was better, and after we loaded for a trip it was better and finally a Roadmaster Reflex steering stabilizer it is ok to drive.
