Newmar Bay Star leveling - tires off the ground

While we wait for our Bay Star to be "born" at the factory, we're researching different things and got to wondering about how to handle leveling on really sloped ground. In our previous motorhome, at some camp sites, we found we had to raise our front end so far that the tires would be in the air to get level! This didn't seem safe so we wondered what others do. Do you pretty much have to leave that campsite and go elsewhere?

I have no issue with the front wheels being raised off the ground slightly, but never ever the rear ones. If you stay a lot of places where the fronts will be off the ground frequently then you should invest in some 2x6x12 boards and place them under the front tires and then lower the tires onto the boards.
