Question Wheel Chocks

I have X-Chocks for my travel trailer and I love them. They reduced a lot of movement in the rig. http://http://www.campingworld.com/s...ng-chock/43891
That is what I have.

The problem is I just bought a new trailer and it has a longer wheel base so these dont fit. I need something that will extend to over 15 inches. Does anybody know of anything like that and where I might be able to get it? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

I have a 2010 keystone bullet 295 bhs. The longer wheel base, they say, is for better towability. I've only towed it once but it does have a nice smooth ride

If you go to this gallery, there is a picture of the long wheel base, its kind of strange looking actually!

Seems like that gap would increase tire wear when making tight turns in a campground.

That looks pretty nice. I had an issue this weekend, where one plastic chock slid and the other started to crush while lowering thw tongue to level. This spot required me to fully extend to get the tv out then fully drop the tongue to the lowest setting to level. Thought i was going to lose my trailer for a minute. Went to Northern Tool and found large rubber chocks for the break down this morning and these gripped.

I may look at getting one of those to use on one side and use the two rubber chocks on the other

I know I'm a bit late to this discussion, but I actually have the exactly opposite problem. I bought the original BAL chock when I had a 32' TT & it worked like a charm. Now however, I have moved up to a 38' TH w/a triple axle & the original BAL chock is too wide to fit in between the wheels. I was thinking of trying the X-Chock, but at $50/ea. I thought I'd try to see if anyone in my situation has had success using them with a triple axle first.

Anyone?

Charlie,
I do not know if it would work on not.
A cheap fix may be screw blocks of 2x4 to the face of the surfaces. It would add about 3" to the reach.

X-Chock

You will need at least 2 inches between the closest portion of the tires for the X chock to work. This is a pretty common issue. Standard wheel chocks will probably be a better solution.
