I prefer the Lynx levelers over wood because the Lynx levelers are lighter and dont retain moisture.

Retain moisture ?? Did I mention that wood is CHEAP? Leave levelor blocks behind and you're back to Camping World. Forget woodblocks and you head to your workshop and cut a few more. The only plastic levelors I have ever owned were the ones someone else left on the site when they left.

Some folks just need to buy a manufactured product rather than going old school. In the end, we all end up with our TT's level. Your choice. In a pinch I have used a flat rock I pulled from the firepit to deal with a "custom" need.

Different strokes, etc. just make sure it's level no matter the cost!

I got a pair of the Andersen levelers.

Obviously, they are at a disadvantage in terms of price versus wood. However, they are light to carry and so easy to use - leveling side to side was literally a few seconds. It took longer to get the level out and place on the a-frame than it did to level out.

An ease versus cost issue to me. Seems like they should last forever - just have to make sure we don't lose them!

I use the Lynx and am real happy with them. I have 28 of the blocks themselves and 8 caps. They work great. The only place I use wood blocks is under the tongue. There I use 3) 4x6s two of them supporting one the tongue rests on. I pretty much use all 28 Lynx blocks every time out. If I don't need them under the tires for side to side, I put them under the stabilizers to keep them "short." Much lighter than wood blocks and easier to clean up if they good mud on them. Yes, cost more, but they also make it easier if you need to go up "higher" vs. trying to stack wooden blocks.

I have been using the Lynx Levelers for many years. I like the fact they are light weight and pack up nicely. Yes, there are other good products out there too!

I purchased two of the waffle/Lego style 10 packs when they were on sale at CW, and used them as both leveling blocks and stab-jack pads. When I was cleaning out my garage prior to moving, I found a spare 5/4" x 6" deck board. I cut it in 2 pieces with 45-degree ends, then cut dadoes in both to accommodate a piece of 1x2. I screwed the 1x2 into the dado in the top board, so when I stack the two, the 1x2's lock the two boards together. Most of the campsites I've been to only require one board, but I've used both at a couple of sites. That leaves the Legos for under the jacks. Makes for a real stable set up.

Wood blocks for me and I use 4 different pairs of 4 x4's in 6, 8, 12, and 16 lengths for use under stabilizers. The less the stabilizers are lowered the more stable the trailer is.

What do you use to chock the wheels when they're up on a couple of blocks?
