These don't seem to be available any longer at Camping World (at least on-line) and a quick search didn't identify any other suppliers.

Surely there are folks that boondock and will run into this condition?
I would likely still take a set of blocks if I bought these levelers, as like you the ground I camp on is not all that level, plus I have had times where one side of the trailer would need more lift that the Andersen levelers would provide.

Still, I think they would work great most of the time.

Nope, he's getting paid by the hour.....
And to think he was only towing a 13' egg.

We purchased two of the Anderson leveling systems and brought them with us to pick up our trailer. Reace told us that we would probably have to cut them because he had heard they don't fit on the 19', so .... we're using the chocks that came with the Escape starter kit. Naturally, we stopped tonight and couldn't remember the proper way to chock the wheel. Immediately to our rescue came our neighbor with instructions on chocking, stabilizing, etc., etc. Love it! (Just hope he's right ... )

Would there be any other way to cut these down? I sold my table saw, they just scare me to death! I have a compound miter saw and a band saw, but I would think the band saw might melt the plastic more than cut it. Any ideas?

Vicky,
The bandsaw should do just fine. A sharp wood cutting blade should work. If you have adjustable speed you could slow it down to keep the blade cool. A dull blade will produce more heat. A table saw would scare anyone to death for that job!

I am very interested in doing this too. Does anyone know if the 19 shares the same distance between the axles as the 21'.
Does anyone have an answer to Jim's earlier question regarding c-c axle spacing on the 21' and 19'?

They look the same in photos, but I don't have direct profile shots handy to objectively compare. Since it's not in the specs, owner measurements seem to be the way to go...
