Leveling Blocks for newbie

This week I will be taking delivery of a 28' Class C Sunseeker with Big Foot Leveling Jacks. My question is how many sets of leveling blocks do I need to purchase to cover most leveling situations. I have noticed leveling blocks that come 10 to a set. Also is there a brand of leveling blocks that are considered superior to the others?

I carry several pieces of wood. 2x8 about 12-16" long. Seldom have a need to use them unless the site is really out of level badly.

Buy some stall mat and cut it in 1 foot squares. They sell it at ranch supply places. The one I bought was 4' x 6' and I made 24 "blocks" 3/4" thick for about $2 each. I glued some to pressure treated 2 x 12 and made a few 3" thick blocks.

I broke too many of the stackable plastic blocks which made them unusable before I found out about the stall mat.

When we had a fiver, I carries a whole bay full of real nice blocks I made myself from all sizes of stock. On the class A we have now I don't carry one piece of wood or any kind of blocks or pads. And don't need any and don't miss them. The jacks have large pads on them and they do anything I need, or I don't need it. Never have had any problems so far.
