Plastic Leveling Ramps

So I bought these leveling ramps on Amazon. They initially worked great and leveled my RV quickly! But after 2 1/2 months or so...Click image for larger version

It is my experience that plastic supports won’t last very long

I have three bags of Lynx Levelers (Amazon). Two of the bags we've had now for 3 RV's (TT, 5er, and now the Axis)--they've held up quite well.

I've also picked up a set of the double wide blocks (Amazon) for the rears. So far we've had these for two seasons now with satisfactory results (they are still together).

Thirdly I have a set of these (also Amazon) for when we park the RV at the house. These seem to be fairing a little worse than the above blocks but are still functional at this point (have had them for 2 or 3 seasons now).

Horse stall mats

I went through 2 sets of plastic levelers - they broke if the surface below wasn't perfectly flat (why do you think I needed levelers in the first place?).


Someone suggested horse stall mats - and they work great. Cut to size for single and dually tires, and you're good to go. They are heavy, but also indestructable. On rocks, over ruts, in gravel, they just work. Not bad for a $45 investment.


Mine came from our local tractor supply: https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...bber-stall-mat

I used what looks like the same ones although I got about 2 years out of them. I have a Compass which has dual rear tires and weighs about 11,000 pounds, so I had four of them. I have since purchased the one in the link from Amazon, and they seem much more durable. At the same link, I now see they also have a Super Leveler which is rated for 10,000 lbs while the ones I have are rated for 4,000 lbs.

Camco Yellow Drive On Tri-Leveler, Raises Your RV Up by 3-7/8" Works on Any Tire , Has Built In Handle, Load Capacity of 4000 lbs, Durable Non Slip Surface (44573) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000BUQOFO/ref=cm_sw_r_fm_taa_ovD2CbW7VSWRN
