If you are tired of lugging around scraps of wood to level your RV, you can get a great deal on Lynx Levelers right now at Amazon.

Amazon Lynx Sale

Also, if you like their Facebook page, you might win a set for free!

These Lego-style blocks work great, and are much easier to use and tote around.

Hi All.

We are Happy for you, and that you are Happy about the prices you paid for the "Plastic Blocks".

We still much prefer the "Free Blocks" that we have always been using for the past 45+ years as RV'ers. Anytime any one of them needs relacing, there still the same "Free Cost" as always.

We find that the Free Wood Blocks last for a very long time. And the really don't take up hardly any more room, and I can replace them from almost any where that we travel and are building something. Its not that we are cheap, but have buetter use for our money. But good Luck to you.

Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill

While I'm a wood block guy, I'm not sure if I could find 2x10 and 2x8 for free. Guess I have to start visiting work sites and asking for scraps.

I have to admit the idea is interesting and my DGS loves Legos but, I drive a Class A with dual rear wheels and in some cases I need to raise an entire side 4.5". To be safe and provide a 9"X9" top level(I would prefer the 9"X18" top level), would take 45 blocks(49 for the 9"X18" top). That would cost over $150.00 and would take up as much room as my three ramps of 2"X8"s three levels high. My three ramps may be much heavier but, the fast and easy to just lay on the ground at the tires, no assembly required, no bags to store and just as easy to disassemble and store when we're ready to break camp and move on.

Maybe if I had a TT with one axel but not with an A. I am hoping my next rig will have hydraulic levelers which are even heavier than my wooden ones.

I carry a 2x8 plank of dry cedar 5ft long.
Both wheels drive up on it and its usually all I need.
I do have a few shorter ones for stacking on really bad sites.

Not agood idea if they are pressure treated....and why use anything but PT wood for that since they are lying on the ground.

I have both the "legos" and two 2X8's 4ft long cut at an angle for ease of backing on to....am thinking of going to just the legos, weight is a great difference as is space.
