I'm in Florida and have gone thru 4 boxes of those Lynx Leveler Blocks. They just break all up in the sand. I'm parked on an incline,can't get level and its been like standing on the side of a mountain in my MH for the past month.

Stopped into an Automotive store yesterday and right there on the floor where I walked in was a set of nice study, yet lightweight,good long rise, ramps......made by the same company that makes my sewer hose, Rhino!

They are several inches taller than any of the metal ramps I found on line AND where lower priced......aaaahhhh I'm finally level.

2 Thumbs up for these ramps.

Hmmmm, I wonder if there are a couple of different companies using the name Rhino?

please check the weight rating on those vs your rv. and dont forget to use one under each tire on a dual pair.

Sounds like the same product. The 12000 model is only rated for 3000 pounds per wheel and the 8000 is 2000 pounds per wheel. Sound like it's not rated for your typical Class A. You must have a heck of a slope if you need 8 inches of lift.

And just because the sewer hose people and these people use 'Rhino' it doesn't mean that they are made by the same company. A trademark specifies a product type and ramps don't equal hoses so two companies could get away with using 'Rhino'

We have never needed that much lift to level.

Yup I sure do! Can't complain though, staying at a friends place in Florida this year. Price is really right and my site space is endless, albeit not level but that is where the shore power is located!

The one I bought the Label says its rated for 16,000 lbs. They did twist a bit in the sand though. Going to get some plywood to put under the ramps to stabilize them and try it again today.

After all the times of trying to get up on the Lynx and having them scatter and break up, push forward of the wheel.....when I went to go up on the ramps I thought the MH had pushed them too....I had to get out and look I didn't even feel the MH going all the way up and on them!

Boy what has my life come to when the highlight of my day is leveling the MH?!

We have an older rig and I couldn't justify installing hydraulic levelers so I followed the plan in the manual and built three ramps out of 2x6 and 2x8 dugfir. Works most of the time and not too heavy. I did get the 2x6 ramo crooked under the front wheel and it splintered, still usable but needs replacing. The RhinoRamps don't have but one level spot, my wooden ones have three. Just saying.
