Blocks for stabilizers

The back end of my camper is rather high to begin with and if you back in up hill it's really high to the point that even fully extended they barely reach the ground.
I know a lot of folks use timber blocks but in my opinion those are heave, bulky and hard to store. So I made these collapsible block.
The uprights are three quarter inch plywood and the top and bottoms are a one by ten Click image for larger version

There is no magic size for these. Whatever works best for you. I used 1x10s for the top and bottom cut into squares so that makes them nine and a half inches square. That allows me to stack Lynx leveling blocks on top if I need a little extra.
The uprights are 3/4 inch plywood. The tall ones are twelve inches square and the short ones are six by twelve. I used a 3/4 router bit to cut the slots just over half the height though that had to be widened a bit after I painted them.
They seem to stack very nicely. If I had to do it over I would make six short ones instead of the tall ones. They are a little easier to assemble and take apart

I have tested these at home and they work great. It will be about two weeks before we get out again
