Anderson Hitch Camper Leveler

Here are some pictures of the Anderson Hitch Camper Leveler Model 3604. The leveler is just a bit too long to fit between the wheels on the Escape 19 footer. As the photos show, I just trimmed one inch from the end of the leveler. This increased the initial lift 3/16 inch from ½ inch to 11/16 inch, which is negligible.

Backing the trailer up onto the leveler was a cinch, making leveling a breeze.

This looks great. But, is the wedge easy to pull out? I wonder how easy it would be to pull out on gravel or uneven ground? Hummmm.

Back up a bit & pull the wedge, then forward off the cam.

Also, the pictures show the levelers installed in the front of each tire, so the trailer was pulled up on the leveler vs backing up?

I think I'm going to try and make something like that from glued up wood.

That'll probably be lighter Myron- I was surprise how heavy the Andersons are.

What type of saw did you use to cut the leveler? We've got a set and I haven't cut them down yet. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing! I have been agonizing on how I was going to make an angular cut safely with just hand tools. This is so much easier!

I used a hand jig saw and then evened things out with a hand plane. It cut like butter at a medium rpm.

I cut mine with a mitre saw and then sanded them.
