Instead of trimming them, start by driving up on a small (1" or so) set of blocks. Once on top of them, the wheels will have enough room to fit the Anderson levelers in.

It's great when the plans come together. After all the research, you tend to get exactly what you had hoped. We are happy with 99% of our decisions on our trailer! Enjoy your first break-in trip! (We also averaged about 15.5 mpg towing with a GMC Acadia. My wife and I used to challenge each other who could get higher mileage. On the flats we could see around 18!)

Looking very good Robert. One day when you have a tape measure handy I would like to know the height from the ground to the top of the bed rails on the 2WD Ford F150.
Thanks, Mark

Looks good Robert. I was glad to see the BAL X-Chocks worked out also. We have a pair that we used on our last trailer. I was concerned about being able to use them on our upcoming '19' because of the shroud that dips down between the tires. Looks like there's enough room to get the wrench in there.

Can't you just turn them upside down and get the wrench in from the bottom?

Looking at Robert's picture of the chocks, it looks like the centre bolt sticks out farther than the nut on the other end. I think this bolt would probably hit the shroud if you turned them upside down.

In the same picture it appears that the cable tv hookup is right next to the door, less that is for a tv for outside?
