Question Best Way to Level TT at Seasonal Campsite???

Looks like I will be picking up a 41' Zinger Destination Trailer. This camper is over 13 feet longer and couple thousand pounds heavier than my current camper.

So, I am looking for advice on the best way to level a camper of this size. It will sitting on a gravel pad camp site on a permanent site.

Any advice or practical experience would be appreciated.

Length won't matter. Trailers all level the same. Do side to side first, then front to back.

Once leveled add at least 3 of the stabilizer stands to each side, 1 on the front side of the front wheel, 1 behind the rear wheel & 1 about 1/2 way between tongue jack & front wheel. If it were me I'd place all 4 tires on pieces of treated lumber & all the jacks, stands & tongue jack as well.

I have concrete blocks to use to stabilize the trailer. Are the screw stands a better option? I do plan on using treated wood under the tires for sure to help level side to side.

I agree with leveling side to side first. But I usually drop the tongue down first and put blocks under the frame at the rear. Then raise the tongue and prop that up with blocks as well.

How do you setup a trailer that will be on a permanent site? Do you block up the frame or just use the stabilizer jacks on the corners?

The blocks will work. The advantage of the stands is you can adjust later with just a twist or two.
