I have a homemade pair from 4x4's and a turnbuckle. I find that after the tires cool down from traveling they shrink a little so the chocks have to be tightened up later.

For less than $20, I purchased a couple rubber wheel chocks, threaded rod, nuts & washers and made my own version of the homemade wooden chocks. I just thought the rubber would grip tighter and last longer than wood. I drilled a 5/8" hole through the rubber without any problems.

I found them for $7/each at TSC (Tractor Supply Company). They also had the threaded rod and hardware. I drilled 5/8" holes, but will be enlarging to 3/4" since the rubber tends to shrink back after drilling and the threaded rod is a little snug. Other than that, they work great.

I use the Chock N Locks from Camping World and it makes the biggest difference in stability. Plus with these you only have to adjust them once and then they are ready to use when ever you need them.
