levelers

Has anyone tried these?

They look awesome. I am planning to get some, but the Canadian price is very high so I will probably buy in the U.S.

I have seen them at CW and thought about it. But at 70-75 bucks my recycled 2x6s work pretty good.

What I like about these is the infinite settings. Sometimes one board is not enough and two are too much. If you have a level indicator at the front of the trailer like we do, you just watch it as you back up to the correct point. This is what I like. At $40 U.S. each they are definitely enticing! The Canadian price is $70 each.

I think they would be nice and way more convenient. Price I quoted was for two. Let us know how you like them.

All I need to do is order them and have them sent to someone who lives in the U.S. and is going to the rally in July and pick them up there. Still looking for someone...

FYI... A little trick I learned for when 1 board is not enough but 2 is too much is to only put the second board under only 1 tire. Raises it up approximately half the thickness of the 2nd board.

We have the full set. 2 normal & 1 tire changing coma ramps, 4 chucks, 4 pads, & shoe scrapper in carry bag. To date the coma ramps work great! They get as much attention as Front Slide at CGs!! DW really likes that I NO long need to carry a lumber yard!
Our area Anderson rep sold @ 12% below MSRP.

They look promising, but the price on them has me a bit hesitant

I purchased a pair but only used them once so far. That one time worked good enough, however I will change my strategy the next time I use them, in two days. The first time, I backed up onto them putting pressure on the coupler latch making it difficult to unhitch. I will pull forward onto the ramps next time. The leveling itself was easy, but you will need two people, one to drive and the other to watch the level and chock while the driver is firmly on the brakes.

One thing I was surprised about was the extra stability we noticed. Since the tires on one side were essentially sitting in a cradle, front to back movements were substantially minimized.

I guess it might react differently for a 5er than a travel trailer.

We have a set and they work great. Trailer does seem more stable on the levelers.

Saw these today at a local RV parts store. Should have checked their price, but left my glasses in the truck. Wanted to research before purchasing anyway. Guess i will be taking a trip back there tomorrow.

Johnboy... If you read it that way, you might need glasses yourself. LOL

I called the campground where we will be staying for the rally in July and they are willing to accept and hold a package for us. I will definitely be ordering a set. We are going on a long trip this fall and will be camping in many different sites and I am sure they will come in handy.

That's awfully nice of them. You could also stop at the first CW you see along your route too.

First of all, there are no Camping World stores along our route, and second I don't see this item in their inventory when I do a search. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Our second time using them this weekend went better than the first. Leveling went quickly and it stabilized just like before. I had more de-hitching issues but for reasons not related to the levelers. We did have to hitch up and leave in the rain, leading to my one and only complaint about the wedges -- They are slippery when wet! I plan on drilling a hole in all 4 components to attach a bit of paracord for easy removal.

We purchased these but haven't had a chance to use them. I'm hoping they are as good as they sound.

We ordered the levelers and had them shipped to the campground in Shipshewana where we were attending the rally last month. This is because it was way cheaper to buy them in the U.S. than in Canada. Our order included a set for our daughter.

We used them in Shipshewana. Our daughter had an easier time of it than we did. Our wheels are closer together for some reason and I really had to work to force the front leveler into position - I had to squeeze it between the tires.

Antares is right, that you need two people to do it, but then when you are driving onto boards you usually use two people - one to drive and the other to tell the driver when both wheels are on the board.

The levelers themselves are surprising heavy! They are made of a very heavy plastic, but then they are holding up a huge weight. They worked very well in that the amount of leveling available was almost infinite.

We will get a better test when we leave early Sept. for a two month trip to Utah, Colorado and Arizona and we will be staying at many different campgrounds.
