Andersen Levelers?

Anyone use them? Do I need to get two if I have double axles or is one sufficient? Do you like them?

Have them, use them and love them. Yes, you need one for each axle. They will sometimes slide on wet grass.

Slide during setup if the grass is wet or when you are moving around inside the trailer?

From what I understand, you can use only one on a two axle trailer, but the trailer will only raise roughly half the distance that the one tire goes up on the lever. So if you use one and drive the tire up 3" high on the lever, it will only raise the trailer roughly 1.5" total. At least that is what I have read anyway (no first hand experience).

They are pretty sweet. I think I am going to splurge on two sets of them for our trailer. They are certainly not NEEDED, but damn would it make setting much quicker and easier.

I had a set I borrowed from a friend to see if I liked them,they are kinda nice but a few places I tried to use them they didn't work for crap,mostly sandy or soft soil areas.I keep a few boards for this reason now and just use my lego blocks to level.Most times I set my trailer up I am alone to,so to hope I am level and stop and check and secure them was more of a pain.But when I had help from my wife they are pretty nice to use.

Thats why you get a big bubble level stuck to the front of the trailer that you can see from the drivers seat. When its level, put her in park and start chocking. Easy peasy, so it sounds

Had them with our TT- absolutely loved them. Never had them slip on me, but on really unlevel sites I had to add shims to get enough lift. Trained my 10 year old to spot by checking a 4ft level inside of a luggage compartment, and throw the chocks in for me- we had the whole process down. Very quick setup and tear down!

Yes I just want something quick and easy. I loved my BAL leveler with my pop up, wish they made one for the TT.
