We never spent any money for blocks to level an RV. On our old El Dorado Class "C" and later on our Denali Travel trailer, we just carried a selection of wood planks in a bin to stack-up as needed. It was always an "art" to build the right size "ramp" as needed to get level. Bubble level was inside - jump-in/jump-out/move/jump-in/jump-out/move...etc
The scissor style jacks on many RV's look like they would hold-up a normal size rig, but the ones on my Denali were specifically labeled to "not use to lift."
I figured, if I bought fancy blocks (like those nice ones from Camco) I would have wanted to keep them clean and such...old pieces of wood are easy to abuse and throw away. But at only $30-$40 for a pack of 10 with a carry bag, it might be easy to just buy them too.
If I had to level one end in the drive-way, I would use a floor jack and jack-stands. That would keep the tires off the ground too...and remember the tire covers to prevent sidewall sun damage. Covers are much cheaper than new tires.
