Andersen TT levelers

I just ordered a pair of Andersen levelers on Amazon last night. They look really neat in the video I saw. If they work as good as they show, they will be a real timesaver.

Please let us know how easy they are to use. I'm intrigued.

Wow, thanks for the heads up. I will try to get a pair of these before my next trip out. Then I can throw away all those boards and most of the lego blocks if the levelers work like they look like they should.

Do you have one or two axles? I have two, and was curious if these would fit between the tires so.

I use them on a double axle trailer. They work great. You don't have to lay them flat to roll on them, you can just wedge them in at an angle. The only issue I have is that to get them out from under your tires you roll forward off them, and they kind of pop loose. I see some small plastic shavings on the ground afterward, so I think this will be the thing that eventually wears them out. But they are very easy to use for leveling.

The Anderson levelers work great. My TT has spread axles, so it is easy to put one behind or in front of both wheels. My wife gets out, checks the bubble levels, places the Anderson levelers under appropriate wheels, guides me back until level, then places included chock under opposite side of wheel, leaving wheels cradled on leveler. Set up is very quick and easy. No pulling forward to place more boards under wheel.

Used ours for the first time last week. We got two for our single axle trailer which is low to the ground. We used them to raise and level the trailer so that my waste pipe would run down hill into the waste pipe at the site.

Worked great.

Ordered me a set for my dual axel Evergreen I-Go Lite a few weeks back ...They are better than I imagined.. So easy to use... If you camp on slopes it may be a problem ,but at most campgrounds the sites are fairly level and these are perfect..I totally recommend these levelers..

Will they hold up on large rocks or rocky dirt? I was at a beach campground a few months ago and the ground was really unlevel with large rocks under the dirt sticking up. I had to put down a bunch of wood that split and broke in half due to the rocks. I wonder if the Anderson levelers would hold up to that. Soft ground and solid ground - yes. Other than that - ?

Honestly they look tough and are a thick red plastic.. The campground we stayed at had small and medium rock mixed and I just wedged it under the tire and backed up.. I looked at them after they were used for three days and could only see little indents in the plastic.. I then used them in the back yard and they sank into the ground just a little but stayed firmly in place.. You might have a problem on large rock but for the normal camping trip they will be fine.

I think the Andersen levelers would hold up better than any other method in the situation you described. I used them on some fairly rocky terrain (think railroad ballast and slightly larger) and they did just fine. Way easier to use than other methods, lightweight, and don't take up much storage space. Downside is you can't burn them if you run out of firewood.

These are by far the easiest levelers on the market. A pic is worth more than all the comments combined to show how great these things are.
