The only advantages I've found are weight, and the plastic is easier to clean with a hose, and doesn't absorb water.

I use the Anderson concave leveler. If I’m gonna spend money on something then it might as well work. Takes only a few seconds to level side to side. Only issue is sometimes it doesn’t have enough height. Only goes to like 4” but more like 3.5” unless you want to risk driving off of it.

I don't even worry about space. I have a milk crate that all the leveling boards go into. Its the last thing that goes right inside the door and the first thing to come out. It sits behind the camper when parked out of the way. All my wood was free. No cost.

I use the plastic ones simply because of weight. And I'm thinking of getting the Andersen Leveler next.

Not needed more than three high. Built a stepped up ramp with the plastic. Amazon has had some short lived deals for some reason, 15 bucks a set.

Storage and weight is the main advantage. The plastic store nicely and stay put, where the wood doesn’t. The 2x6 like to split over time as well. I use 2x6 wood on the hitch and plastic on the stabilizers.

I carry 2 Anderson levelers. They work very well. If it the site is close to level, I'll still just use a standard block. But if I need more than an inch or so, I'll use the Anderson.

I use sections of the 5/4 treated lumber deck boards which are exactly 1" thick. I can put my trailer in the spot we want it, read the graduated bubble level, figure out the height I need to raise one side and place the boards either in front or behind the wheel, drive on and set the chock blocks on each side of the wheel. The boards are stacked in a milk crate for travel.

We carry chunks of wood, 12" sections of pressure treated 2x6.

We use the Anderson levelers, and often find ourselves on soft ground where the levelers sink a little or a lot. We carry a couple 1x6, 4 foot pieces of pressure treated deck boards that we use under the levelers to prevent sinking. Sometimes, one deck board is all we need if the site is close to level.

We applied skateboard tape to the levelers, eliminating any sliding on the deck board as we back up.
