Bal X-chocks. We keep them locked so they serve two purposes; stabilization and security

One thing we do notice though, is we still have movement in the trailer when walking, so we still have to put down our "landing gear". I had heard that you didn't need the stabilizers when using the x-chocks. But with having a tt, it is nice to have the additional theft prevention lock for the stationary trailer.

The only ones I have ever used are BAL Deluxe Wheel Chock

I purchased them the day I picked up our trailer. No regrets. As said in the earlier post, you may notice some movement in the trailer, but much less than you would if you did not have any at all.

I use RotoChocks. They are the best, but rather expensive. I have had good luck with tweetys, here are their chocks. http://tweetys.com/wheel-locks-chocks.aspx

Yup! Those are the ones that we have! They are very nice! We bought the pair and the locks on Ebay for $85 plus shipping. It was a good price at the time.

Just got a pair of the X-Chocks at the end of the camping season. Am anxious to try them. If they work as advertised, they will help reduce trailer movement when set up.

Ok, I have to ask since I'm wondering if I was just having a bad day! I bought BAL chocks to use on 2016 Pinnacle 38FLSA. I liked that they came with a padlock for theft protection. Here is the thing, I could NOT get them to fit between my wheels. I had them as small as possible but no dice. Has anyone else had this issue with BAL chocks not fitting?

Rubber ones for the outside so the camper doesn't move when I unhitch, like these:

And X-Chocks between the wheels to help address stability

The solid rubber chicks from harbor freight are the best. The x chock helps movement but will not stop the trailer for moving. Donít kill your self by thinking it will.
