Next on my shopping list is those expandable chocks that go between the tires.

Is this different than what you ordered from Amazon for $76 two posts above?

How many different kinds of chocks are we talking about here?

No, they are the same. When I got them, the invoice said $59. I can only guess there was a price change. These are the BAL X-Chocks. Sorry for the confusion, it wasn't my fault.

It's always fun to find out at the register that something costs less than you expected. Thanks for clearing that up!! I might have to get some now that they are only $59.

I ordered a pair of them from Amazon for around $75 shipped..They seem to help the "wobble" issue somewhat but I think what I'm still getting a little of is the construction/build characteristics of the trailer. DW said it seemed much better and can live with it, so that works for me.

For the 29FBS at my seasonal camp site, I found that wheel chocks did very little. Yes. They stopped the trailer moving forward (back and forth) but they did little to stop the "up / down" bounce in the middle of the trailer. To stop up / down movements, I found it best to install another set of jacks under the middle of the frame. Thus, removing more chassis weight off its axles. After installing jacks in middle of our TT (on its frame rails), the bounce was almost eliminated. For your TT, I'd recommend the install of scissor jacks in the middle of your TT. Thus, reducing weight off its springs / axles. Works for me...
