Wheel chock/stabilizer suggestions

We just upgraded our tires on our 5th wheels and got rid of our Chinese bombs. Our spacing though between the wheels is now smaller at about 1 1/2 inches and our metal scissor stabilizers don't fit. Does anyone have a suggestion of a chock/stabilizer that will work with this small gap? There are a lot of products stating that they will go as small as 1 1/2 inches but the reviews state that they won't work for 1 1/2 inch gaps. Using these for flat surfaces only and seeing we may at times use leveling blocks, we're looking for something compatible when using those. Thanks in advance!

Sorry misread some of the post. The last one I listed may be your best option then.
Or if you only level one side, you could chock the side not on leveling blocks.

I use the Camco Camper Small Wheel Chock Stop - $18.99 ones, mentioned by another poster and they work very well for my 5th wheel.

...........or if you are fairly handy, make a pair from some 4x4 dimensional lumber and a piece of all thread and a few nuts and washers.

We have one of the BAL originals as well as one of their X chocks along with a pair of my homemade pieces. They all work well though the homemade take two wrenches instead of one.

I added additional stabilizers-one on each side half way between the original stabilizers. All stabilizers take weight, now no more shake and roll.
Happy Camping
