Camco Tri-leveler or Lynx Levelers?

Hey all,

Was trying to decide between Lynx levelers or a group of Camco tri-levelers for my Greyhawk 31FS....For those that are die-hard hydraulic fans or old-fashioned wood fans - Too expensive/heavy and/or when it comes to things made from wood...Im the opposite of Bib Villa.

I noticed the Camco levelers are cheaper when looking at amount to raise vehicle compared with price, however with the Lynx levelers displacing weight over a greater area also seem appealing...

What made some of you pick one over another? How many sets or pieces did you purchase, and why? [My question leads from the thought of the duals and the weight distro]

Well, I've used wood for too many years to count, but 2' x 12's that are made a sandwich of with epoxy and 1/4" plywood will last until you leave them behind or put them in a campfire.

For 20+ years of camping with a TT we always used wood if necessary. In 1999 when I bought my first MH I bought a set of 8 EZ Ramp levelers, yellow plastic squares. I still used wood at times also. Mainly used the pads under the jacks and wood under the tires if needed.

In 2007 when I bought another MH I decided to use the wood for firewood and buy more plastic levelers; lighter and uses less space. I chose the Lynx Levelers only because there are 10 in the case instead of 8. The first time I used them they looked like they had been run over by a giant earth mover. Most of them were unusable again because they were so warped they could not be interlocked again. Customer Service at the company was great though. They sent me a new pack without me having to send the old ones back. They did say each pad is supposed to support 20k lbs so weight should not have been the problem.

I've used the new ones only a few times now and a few of them are starting to show some damage. I am very careful to assure they are connected properly if I need more than one level in height. The 10 year old levelers are fine. I wouldn't buy the Lynx levelers again but would buy the others.
