Alternative leveling solutions?

So I have recently come across the BAL Light Trailer Tire Leveler, so I am wondering if there is a similar solution for our heavy trailers?

I've used the boards, and the blocks, and I know there is always spending 4k to get automatic leveling jacks; so I am looking for some other alternatives?

Or are the boards/blocks still the best way to go?

edit:// I feel I should also note that a majority of the time we are in the same place for 1 - 2 weeks at a time.

Leveling blocks is all I use.

Every time I see a construction site I ask for trim ends. Leveling blocks are free for the asking.

Sorry not up to speed on the construction lingo... What are trim ends? Trim ends of wood?

Every time they saw off a board there is a trim end. Anywhere from a few inches to a foot or two. Perfect blocks for leveling a trailer.

Another vote for the Andersen Levelers. Used in conjunction with the Levelmate Pro device and app they make leveling quick, easy and a one person job...
