OK, my tires are only two inches apart, what do you use. I've been using the type that spread out between the tires with a wrench. But at 2" I can't get them in the space.

google up the X chock and read about it. Is what I use in those close quarters.

I go the cheap route. I first get my measurements and angles figured out, then take a treated 4"x4" and cut two identical chocks that fit snuggly between the tires (lying on the ground).

I realize this probably does little to help with trailer movement, but it will keep it from accidentally rolling forward or backward. Besides I've never had much problem with trailer movement or either have gotten used to it.

X chocks will go down to 1 3/8" but roto chocks are probably the best solution.

"Rotochok"-when you order they will ask you what spacing you have and send you the correct set.

We use the big Lynx chocks (orange ones) since we have a big 5th wheel. We always chock before unhitching.
