Thumbs up for Trailer Aid. Worked like a charm with my previous "sticky". Fortunately, have not had to use it with the 21' yet. Bet it works as well, though.

Keeping in mind the suspension being springs on my 5.0TA, the trailer aid I borrowed from my neighbor would not get the "bad" tire off the ground. Didn't measure how thick it was though, may differ from the current model and his was a pretty old aluminum job.

You need the trailer aid plus. It lifts the wheel off the ground 5.5". The regular trailer aid is 4.5"

That looks like it'd do it. Too bulky for me though, plus I already own a jack.

Does the Escape 21 need the regular or plus size Trailer Aid?

Standard one works fine and fits in front box. Have used it several times to level side-to-side when needing extra height.. When doing so we place the regular slant ramp a few inches forward on the leading tire.

Thanks Ross. By regular slant ramp do mean one like the this Camco ? Used in conjunction with the Trailer Aid?

Go with the Trailer Aid Plus. Uneven ground may keep the regular Trailer Aid from getting the wheel off the ground. Little difference in size, weight and cost, but gives you a bit more lift. On flat pavement the regular is probably OK. But out in the Boonies at the side of the road, who knows?

Does the Trailer Aid Plus fit well in the front storage box?

I had the regular trailer aid and it fits inside the front storage box on my 21'. It was put to use on a parking lot last year due to a flat. No problem on a parking lot, so it does work and it does fit.
