They must be new, I have used the Camco levelers, they will fit between your tandem axles. If you get these, please post to the forum if they will work, I may get a pair!!

They should work fine for single axle. If they cradle the tire good, there would be no need for blocking.


They do work on a very simple principle. It would be very easy to use, and should work great.

I do take a bit of issue with their saying that using blocks is so difficult. It is a rare occasion that I cannot get it right the first try. Just looking at the level tells you how much you need to lift once you get used to it.

A pair of them would be a bit bulky to carry (not packing compactly in a nice square), and you would still need the flat ones for under the stabilizers when they are way off the ground. Plus, we have often parked where 4" is not enough leveling.

Bought one before our month long trip. Have a BAL; too heavy. This works great. Actually sold a few on the trip. What this doesn't do is slide out from the wheel. Two of the people said they had trouble with other ramps pushing out as they tried to drive up on them. No guessing how high a block you need and the gradations are small. Put it under the wheel drive until partner says level and you are done. Perfect level the first time. Be glad to sell my BAL if seone wants it. See picture

I'm curious if they will fit a dual axle set up?
