Yikes. I think I like the sound of those rubber ones.

Do the X-chocks fit the White Hawk's extended wheel base? I assumed not and went straight for plastic ones. Might have to loop back on that decision.

And for what it's worth, my two year-old scrambles up and down our WH steps unaided without missing a beat.

Thanks Moosiedad,
I will check the X-chocks before I buy also. I appreciate the vote of confidence with the kids, I'll probably leave it for now. Thank you.

Btw, can I ask you how your tow vehicle performs? Only reason I ask is because I am using similar relative capacities for our setup (7500 max for 5000 trailer - before options), think yours is ~8600 and 6000 trailer.

Thanks again,

BAL offers an extended chock that should fit the wide stance of a white hawk.

I decided to go with Anderson levelers and BAL X-chocks. Hopefully it works well on the X23B.

I bought the BAL extended X-chocks after reading a couple of scary stories of close calls people had while using the little plastic wedge chocks. Haven't used them yet, but did check to see if they would extend for our White Hawk, and they seem to be fine.

Cheers,
Greg

I think I'm headed that way too.

Do most of you use one of these on each side? Many seem to be sold individual is why I am asking.

Thanks for the tip, 12volt. I'll add those to my Christmas list.

Our tow vehicle does great, Phyllis. It still manages to have some pep with all that weight back there, and only shows minor strain on the big hills. However, I'll add we've not ever approached our maximum capacity for weight.

Are you referring to the wedge or X style chocks? If wedge, it would be 2 on each side. (1 in front & 1 behind a wheel) The X is one on each side.

The extended X-chocks work well on the WH wide stance axles. I also discovered that a quick way to open them up is to use a cordless drill with the same adapter used for the stabilizers. Pretty sure I read this on here several months ago, but something to consider when setting the X-chocks is tire temperature - the tires "shrink" as they cool and the chocks can loosen...
