Anderson Levelers

I know Anderson Levelers were on a previous thread, and the opinions of those who had them were mostly positive, now that it has been some time I am wondering how they have worked out and if they are worth the cost. There seemed to be issues with fitting them between the tires.
I have a dual axel trailer, there is approximately 5 1/4"s between the tires closest point, approximately 12"s above ground.

Thanks in advance for all information.

I can say I still love mine and they fit with no problem between my tires, but they can be cut I'd needed.. Yes they are a little pricey...and yes they really do save time leveling the camper..If you camp in campgrounds that are kept somewhat level you should never need anything else.Now if you camp out in a field or in wooded area that aren't level at all you will need the plank system or leveling blocks.

They are good according to all the posts I've seen. Buy them and if you're not happy sell them! Don't make it so complicated.

Being that I buy HIGH and sell LOW, I can not afford your advice, not that I disagree with it.

I carry two 2"x 8"x 6' boards as well as the lego type blocks, might as well add the Anderson levelers as they seem they would work better in the "somewhat level" sites that we encounter.

Thanks for your help.

Some axles are pretty close. Do a search on the forum for more discussion about axle spread. I think mine was around 7 inches so there was plenty of room. The levelers work great, except on sandy soft ground the tend to sink in a little so you may have to readjust the trailer position a little after a day or so. They don't have a large footprint like a 4' piece of 2x8. I also use them under the rear TV tires to raise the back of the truck when I hook up the weight distribution hitch rather than put a load on the tongue jack, and it is easier to do.

I love mine. I don't know the distance between my tires but I haven't had issues with that area.

I'd get some in a heartbeat but my 15" tires are only 2.25" apart. Too close to use them.

Has anyone used the levelers in conjunction with a plank? I'm thinking that may help solve the sinking in sand or wet ground. Would also give you an extra 1.5" if your site is really low.

It would be a good idea to carry a 6' piece of 2x8 with you if you have the room and anticipate being on soft ground. As I stated the leveler has a small footprint so a lot of weight is concentrated on a small area. It is a lot easier and faster to use the Anderson leveler than to carry around a lot of lumber or stack the "Lego" blocks.

I LOVE my Andersen levelers. When used in conjunction with a giant bubble level, I'm level in no time flat - all by myself! YAY.

I bought a pair of Anderson Levelers when I was in Oregon (no sales tax!), saw the note about being able to cut off 4 ". I have plenty of room so I won't have to cut them, our next trip is in June and hope to use them instead of the 2"x8" board (s) or blocks.

Good question, in July we are staying at a state park, usually have to use 2 2"x8" boards to level there, I will try the Anderson Levelers with one board first if one doesn't level the trailer.
