Some time ago I talked with someone on this site about a ramp that allowed one wheel at a time to be off the ground. This ramp was used for changing flats, and also for packing wheel bearings. Can anyone remind me of the brand of this ramp and where I might purchase one.

Thank you. Greg

I don't remember the brand or name but I did see them at my local rv store today.

I just found them in my rv book. They are called trailer-aid chocks made by camco

Brandon is correct. I use it to repack my bearings (although you can only do one wheel at a time) and for changing tires. Works great, takes up only a little space and is real easy.

32 bucks is a good price. I just bought one at Camping World two weeks ago for 57 bucks (I think). That was the Good Sam's discount price, too.

Good Sam seems to be pretty proud of his merchandise. We've noticed that about him several times.

Okay, here is perhaps a dumb question, but I better find out the answer before I damage something.

Can tires/wheels be changed with only one of these ramps, or are two required? Seems like if only one was used the trailer would be leaning over quite a bit.

Thanks for your help.

Two or three pieces of 2x6 about2 to 2-1/2 feet long will do just as well! They never come amiss when leveling up either.

Only one ramp is needed. They come in two sizes, I would suggest that you get the Travel Aid Plus which gives about another inch of lift over the standard ramp. The Plus that I have is black.
