Another vote for roto-chocks. Link in my sig. Highest quality chocks on the market from my observations. They are a solid piece of engineering made here in the USA. You won't go wrong when buying these.

I did the same. Took me twenty minutes, and cost six bucks.

FWIW I just saw new X-Chocks on e-bay for 30 bucks.

Looks like I am going to get the bal chocks. They look like they will work good, plus a few have recommended them. The roto chocks look nice but I like the price of the bal chocks better.

I like the bal chocks the most from the start, just glad I asked. Its never good when you buy something that does not work or last very long. I was using wooden 4x4 on my TT that I cut to length with 45 degree angle in. they did keep the camper from rolling away, but with a 5 year old, keeping the tires from moving at all is the best outcome.

Can’t wait to get out and use the new unit. Thanks everyone for the advice and input.


That's OK. You can get the Roto Choks later when the BAL Chocks fail. Just like I did.

I have a 2007 Arctic Fox 24-5N and use X Chocks. The axles are close, making it difficult to get the chocks between the tires. I think the newer chocks are a different design and might be easier to insert. Make sure the fit is good before you purchase. Wish I had!
