we have the Andersons and we love them. l too carry a 2x6 about five feet long to add height if they are not tall enough. the 2x6 also gives them a wider footprint in soft ground. it sure is easy since the first thing we do is have my wife watch the rear level and just tell me when the trailer is level. Easy is good.

Correction, I think it is a 2x8.

I've (so far) never needed either. I generally just pivot my trailer to cross with the slope. In other words, if the slope is North to South, I park East to West. I have, on occasion, dug a shovel load of gravel out of the camp pad and backed into it then replaced the 'divot' on leaving. I also bring a 12 x 12 x 2 inch piece of wood I can back onto. Total cost...nothing really.

I really like the multi-funtion of the "Lego" type blocks. If the site is level, but a bit muddy or wet, I use them under the stabilizers. On an unlevel site I use them under the tire and then use the extras so that the stabilizers don't have to be extended as far. On a site that is unlevel front to back they help prevent needing to crank up the front jack to the max. Stored in their carry case they are farily light and easy to fit into storage places. I just ordered a second set to use with the twin axles on our upcoming 21.

My BALs are awesome for those times the site needs more than say 3" of correction.

I however like the ease of the legos at getting "close enough".
