Best RV Leveling Blocks

Best RV Leveling Blocks

Are you looking for the best leveling blocks for your RV or camper? We will go through the various types of RV block levelers to help you decide which are best for you!

We’ve all been there. You arrive at your incredible camping destination or favorite campground that may be set in a lush forest or is situated in minimal desert landscape when you realize your campsite has a positive slope in one or more directions.

If you own or you’re using an RV that does not come equipped with a self-leveling system – typically hydraulically driven – then you will want to carry some form of leveling blocks for your RV.

While using stacks of 2X dimensional lumber is an option to level your camper or motorhome, they can be heavy to carry on your trip, cumbersome to adjust properly, and can take up valuable cargo space.

In lieu of using heavy timber, we suggest these RV leveling products.

Types of Leveling Blocks For RVs

Stackable Interlocking Leveling Blocks

Stackable, interlocking leveling blocks allow you to increase the height of your RV as much or as little as necessary. They also make building a pyramid-like structure easy.

Most RV leveling blocks are indicative of large Lego blocks. The interlocking blocks and are approximately 11″ x 11″, they come in variety of colors depending on the manufacturer, and can accommodate a range of 3,000 to 10,000 pounds of weight.

Pros

  • Lightweight, lighter than dimensional lumber
  • Stable and durable form-factor
  • Able to increase height easily as required
  • Stackable for storage in your cargo space
  • Reasonably priced
  • Versatility, can be used for leveling the tongue jack on trailers
  • Use under trailer stabilizing jacks for sites with soft surfaces

Cons

  • Not a leveling solution for heavy RVs
  • Open form can get clogged with rocks
  • Sites with heavy slopes will require more than on set
  • Require additional wheel stabilizing/chock solution

Ramp Levelers

RV leveling ramps are a pre-formed, one-piece block typically with three different pre-determined height levels that raise your RV often to a max of 4″ +/-. Many leveling ramps are capable of supporting up to 11,000 pounds each.

Pros

  • One piece units
  • Lightweight and easy to store
  • Require no additional adjusting
  • Reasonable cost for the leveling solution

Cons

  • Level heights are pre-determined
  • Micro height adjustments are not an option
  • Additional wheel chocking is required, no integrated solution

Leveling Ramp Blocks

Leveling ramp blocks are curved ramp-like levelers. These types of RV levelers require you to only drive your RV backwards or forward onto them to set your desired level height. Their innate curved shape make it easy for the user to see the leveling occur in real-time.

Due to their curved form factor, many – depending on the manufacturer’s – may act as wheel chocks or wheel stabilizers as well as leveling devices.

Pros

  • Durable and solid leveling solution
  • Brand range of height adjustability
  • Lightweight and easy to store
  • May also act as a wheel chock
  • Accommodate tires up to 32″ in diameter
  • Many can handle up to 30,000 pounds of weight

Cons

  • Can slip out from under the wheels when adjusting
  • Most expensive leveling solution of the three noted
  • Single-purpose use, not versatile
  • Max height is 4″ +/-

Best Leveling Blocks For RVs and Campers

For each of the three types of RV level block solutions, we selected the best for your consideration.

Stackable Interlocking Leveling Blocks

For all of our RVs we have utilized the Camco FasTen 2×2 Leveling Blocks for use under our stabilizing jacks, to level our trailer from front-to-back under our trailers’ hitch/tongue, and to level our campers on sloped sites.

We suggest getting two sets of these in the event you are camping at paved or unpaved campsite that has a lot of cross slope.

Ramp Levelers

If you prefer to use a ramp leveling solution for your trailer or motorhome, we suggest the Zone Tech Automotive Multi Leveling Ramps. Sold in a set of four, these durable, non-slip ramps can hold a maximum weight capacity of 11,000 pounds per axle.

Leveling Ramp Blocks

The best level ramp block solution in our opinion are the Andersen Camper Leveling System with the included rubber mats. Sold in a 2-pack, you will need additional sets if you have a multi-axle trailer or a Class C with a dually rear axle.

Best Wheel Chocks For RVs and Campers

As we noted, not all RV leveling block products have integrated wheel stabilization or wheel chocking included. To have a safe and stable camper or trailer once your desired level is set, you will want to stabilize your RV wheels to prevent rolling and forward or backward movement.

Here three types of RV wheel chocks and camper wheel stabilizers we suggest:

Wheel Chock Scissor Stabilizers

There are a variety of manufacturers that now offer the scissor type wheel stabilizer. These type of wheel chocking solution are specifically used for RV’s or travel trailers with duel or triple axles and are placed in-between the tires compressing them to halt their movement.

We suggest the X-Chock Wheel Stabilizers for owners of duel or triple axle travel trailers and fifth wheels.

Heavy Duty Rubber Wheel Chocks

For maximum versatility and durability – and owners of motorhomes, single axle trailers, or travel trailers and fifth wheels – the MAXXHAUL 70472 Solid Rubber Heavy Duty wheel chocks are a great solution.

The solid rubber wheel chocks are rugged, are easy to store, and are a durable cost-effective wheel stabilization solution for RVers.
