Leveling Blocks for Winnebago View

I've seen several different brands and styles of leveling blocks. Short of making my own, any suggestions on the best ones.

Also, how many should I buy. I'm planning on camping in various state parks and other less than level spots.

Thanks.

I tried the cheap camco yellow Lego blocks and did okay for about 15 trips. But now I have made my own with 2x6. Cheap and road worthy. A little ghetto maybe but I smashed the blocks in a year, interested to see what others sY

I had 2 sets of these:
Amazon.com: Tri-Lynx 00015 Lynx Levelers, (Pack of 10): Automotive
Used them for 4 1/2 years with my View....still were doing fine....

The Lynx Levelers and Andersen Leveler are quite different. Can you tell me why you like one over the other? Also, since I'll usually be travelling solo, which might be easiest to use?

I have a 2014 Winnebago View.

Thanks.

I used the Lynx levelers for over 4 years...that was the only leveler I used. I can't comment on the Andersen levelers.

Levelling

I have the yellow blocks but as I am usually by myself fumbling around trying to fit them together to get the right height, it's so much easier to just drive up on the Anderson levellers which go up to 6 inches...

The Lynx levelers (orange) are a good product and will last for years, and are available at most any Walmart. I've also tried the similar Camco (yellow) leveler product but was disappointed, those were much more prone to breakage.

Regarding the number to purchase. You need enough to level five tires as the 4 duals each need blocks if leveling both sides on the rear. The fifth is for one front in the event you need to level three positions. Typically only raising two to four inches at the most severe corner. Other positions will typically be less.
