square vs curved levelers

Any thoughts on which type is better? Comparing the Andersen curved type against the standard square type, it appears from the Amazon reviews that it's evenly split. I have an AXIS 23.5 Class A and I'll be travelling alone so all the leveling work I'll have to do myself unless someone tells me that I need to go get help when I get to an RV site. Thanks!

If it's evenly split: buy the ones that you can get for the best price, and don't look back!

Square are a little more trouble, but less likely to break

I agree with Bob. The curved ones interest me. But if you are travelling alone will you need someone to chock it up, or can you set your brake and do it?

I watched a youtube vid a while back of someone trying those curved ones.
I think it was on fitrv.com

My memory might be foggy, but I remember them looking like they'd be a royal pain in the neck.

I think there should be a law against any YouTube video being over 4 minutes unless it's a movie. I think I'll do one..."Unboxing and assembly of a back yard swing set from Sears".

Iíve used the Anderson levelers for 4 years (first with a TT and now with my Class C) with no problems. Bought a Level Mate Pro and now I can level the rig myself without arguing with DW 😊
Much better than the stacked blocks IMHO.

I'd just rather hit the button, and deploy the Equalizers...
