It allows me to set up the trailer while the wife and kids are off exploring.

The only downside is that you only get the 4" of lift from the leveler. If you need more than that it's difficult to get more. I learned this the hard way on our last trip. I was trying to put the leveler on top of the Anderson Tuff Pads and that was a nightmare as the leveler just kept sliding off the pads. Then when I got it on there wasn't room on the pad for the chock. I had to put down another pad ext to it to try and get the chock secured. It ended up sliding anyways and being off level by about a half degree. I also never felt like it was truly secure. I'm going to try a 18" long 2x6 next time.

I use a 2x6 treated with my anderson levers occasionally. It is roughly 4 feet long and still not quite long enough.

You can raise just one axle, but it will only raise the trailer roughly half of what the one axle goes up.

The Fiamma variety comes with more lift and a wider footprint; motorhome tire capable.

Big fan of Anderson levelers! Have used a set now for two years and not a problem.
