I just bought my husband a set of Lynx Levellers (reminds me a bit of giant lego) for Christmas. I'm wondering if many of you use these and how you feel about them. There a cap that can be bought that fits on top but I'm not sure if that's worthwhile. Also I see you can also buy chocks that can be attached as well...that sounds like it might be good.

I'd appreciate any thoughts and suggestions.

Thank you.

have been using them for several years. Do all our leveling with them. Just be cautious on thick gravel, it will shift and cause them to break. They come in handy also for leveling the gas grill, etc and placing under the corner jacks.

Have you stacked them without any problems? The instructions suggest to place two and then one across the two, just like lego. This is of course if you need the extra height.

Thanks for the tip about thick gravel, I wouldn't have thought of that.

Another highly recommended product. You can stack them as needed.

I've found you can never have too many Lynx LevelersThey are all I use for leveling anymore. Also the chocks that attach to them work great as well.

Thanks Arlyn & Dana, I appreciate your input. I had heard some good things about them but it's always good to hear from people who actually use them. Would you think it's worthwhile to purchase the smooth caps for the top?

I've never seen the smooth caps for them, not sure what they would be for I certainly haven't had any problems using the levelers with out them.

I have 2 sets of them and use them every outing. If not for leveling the camper I use them for the back electric jacks. (the wider feet make the camper a little more stable) I did use the wood planks for awhile but they kept splitting on me. Yes I have seen the rocks getting jammed in the plastic but they have not broken. However in sand I did need to put a board under them as the started to sink in the loose sand.

Have them and use them

The smooth cap does not add height but rather offers a smooth top with a bit of an edge all around. If you made out fine without them then well it obviously isn't that necessary. If want to see what I'm talking about here is the link:

How do they compare weight wise to wood?

They are really light and come in a convenient carrying case. I got a nasty splinter under my nail last summer when removing a piece of wood from under the wheels so I thought there had to be a better way. We haven't tried it yet of course as we live in Ontario, Canada so it will be awhile before the weather allows any trips....

I think theywould belighter than wood, (how much wood would a wood chuck chuck...) they come in a set of 10 in a nylon bag, and etrailer.com list a shipping weight of 9 lbs. I carry 3 sets of them, I've never actually weighed them but I didn't think they weighed even that much.

We like ours very much, bought them after the first trip in the Zinger got lots of splinters in my hands easy to clean light weight. Us Bal chocks found them to be the best

I have a set of Lynx Levelers purchased from Wal-Mart. I also have a set of another brand bought at CW. The Lynx contain 10, the other 8. We have used all 18 on one trip. They are light wight and work as advertised. I also have the Bal Roto Chocks.

Used them for ~15 years. Never had one break. The first set we bought was a 4-pack. Then the ten pack in the bag. Bought the add on chock too, but never used it.

Never saw the caps, but can't see it being worth the trouble.

We even used the levelers to change a tire once. (Still hooked to the truck, of course.)

RV Rick thanks for the tip re using the Levellers for changing a tire. I wondered if they could be used for that purpose....good to know someone had tried them for that.

We only have 10 levellers at the moment and we'll see how that goes. From the sounds of these posts it looks like we made want to add a few more in the future

I ordered mine from an RV dealer and after I gave them to my husband he had mentioned that Wal-Mart carried them....I had no idea. No doubt it would have been cheaper and far easier to go that route.
