I am getting a 30 RKFS Sunnybrook fiver with 16" tires.
I really like the Bal chocks but I think I read somewhere that they dont work on 16" tires.
If that is the case , what are the Best chocks for a 32' fiver with 16' tires

Thanks

Tom Grogan

I think that the main issue is the space between your tires. There is a minimum clearance necessary...I think 2"

The best thing is to go to your RV dealer with the trailer and try one for size.

I ordered a set of Rotochocks (http://www.rotochok.com/) and have been very happy with them. If you give them a call, they can tell you exactly what to measure to make sure that they will fit.

Thanks for the reply and the info on Roto Chocks. I call sunnybrook ( I am getting a 30RKFS) and they told me that this rig has 4" between tires
Thanks again

Roto Chocks are a great idea. (wish I could get them; spent too much on other things). But, if you're looking for a very cheap alternative, my buddy made a pair of these & I have 5" clearance btwn the tires:
TIRE STABILIZER/CHOCKS
Good luck with the new unit.

The chocks your photo page shows will "****" under an appreciable load and will not only not restrain the trailer but be difficult to disengage. For about the same amount of effort your friend could have constructed a pair of ground based "wedge" chocks which are much more sensible and will be safer. If you are parking where chocks are not really not necessary, they will be fine, but in dangerous parking grade situations more is needed. Easier to put a trailer into the lake than get it out.

Don't have a clue how to contact a real person on this site so am posting again.
My previous post contained the word "cocked" in reference to action of trailer chocks. This word was deleted! I can only surmise you people have one of these typically moronic screening programs.
If you are going to operate a site you should have an access to a reply person.
PO'd Jim

I have the Bal Deluxe chocks and they work well. I bought them when I was on the road but wish I had ordered the Rotochocks before we left. I saw a pair of Rotochocks this past wknd and the quality is much better. The Bal Deluxe chocks will easily work in a 4" spacing.

Tom.... Go with the Rotochocks, they're just as easy to operate and are better quality for similar money!
