You need two (driving up one one only would twist the frame too much)
I full time so as we all know I have limited space. I do have a good friend with a 2200 sf garage and lots of concrete outside also and says I can come on work on my coach there anytime...I want to keep under 20 times a year LOL. The stands my brother made are small enough I can store them...just can't do what you can do with the wood blocks.

I used plywood on the bottom then screwed 2x6 to it (you can see in the photo there are two 2x with space in between. One for each tire). Then the next set of 2x6s is screwed on top, followed by another layer of plywood, and so on.

Using 2x8s would have been a better fit to the tire width but the 2x6s work fine (and save a little weight).

It's quite heavy when finished (maybe 40 or 50 lbs) so build in a carry handle or some sort. I cut an hand hold into the middle plywood piece.

Here's another photo. I've painted it since, just to prolong its life as it sits outside when not in use.
