Or dig a hole under the high tire. After all it's a pop up. You can move it by hand.

Ours was 3000 pounds loaded. With a tire stuck in a hole it would have been tough to get out. Moving my hand worked on paved, flat surfaces. Any incline or on gravel and it was not easy or impossible.

Granted, the original poster's PUP is likely lighter being a '91.

I lower the ground of the high side with a shovel. Not a deep hole, the spot should be closer to level than that. Any tow vehicle that can handle the weight of the trailer can easily pull it out.

I agree with you it can't just move it by hand.

While you can dig a hole, after 9 years with a PUP, the 2 Bal products I referenced are easier than digging a hole and chock your wheels better than anything else out there so your PUP doesn't move. Nice and solid when you sleep and kids are moving around inside.

Maybe it's just my thing, but I don't like leaving holes for the next person. Because having been the next person, that hole is never on the right spot for me and typically we've had to fill it due to location. Not fun when we arrive late after work in the dark and the mosquitoes are as large as cars and as busy as a traffic jam on an L.A. Freeway. Especially if it rained days prior and the dirt/gravel is hard and made the hole look more like a crater. More difficult to break up and fill.

When I had a single Axle PUP a couple small boards and some shallow digging was all it took. Check the the tires with some split Firewood pieces. Easy and quick. I filled in any holes or ruts we leave minimum trace when we leave.

I get it every buddy has to finds what's right for them, where I camp mosquitos are no problem. Only saying I find it easy and quick and it works for me.

VERY IMPORTANT
Level the trailer front to back with the tongue jack, and side to side with plastic levellers or a 2x6. Never lower the jack stands until the roof is fully raised, and vise versa when lowering the roof. The frame has to flex, if it can't, u may jamb the lifter system. Saw it happen in a campground once!
