I would have expected to see the tires indented a lot given the very small contact area of the wood/rock.

Instead, the tires look almost perfectly round, like they aren't carrying much weight. Is it possible that levelling jacks are holding most of the weight and the tires are more or less hanging?

I like the sticks used as chocks for the square leveling block!

What kind of trailer is it, a horse trailer, aluminum sided cargo trailer? Doesn't look like any RV I have ever seen.

I was thinking the same thing actually.

Maybe he forgot his leveling blocks at home and this is all he could find at hand quickly before he had to unhook and be somewhere.

For all we know there might be good wheel chocks on the other side to keep it from rolling.

It'll never work unless those sticks are oak.

It's a stock trailer (livestock).
You should hear the comments when horse people/ cow people pull up in their stock trailer as a camper, even though it has nicer living quarters than most of your new campers...

I have done more leveling with less. Many times I would use a rock and just teeter the wheel up on it, this way I drive off and keep going when it is time to leave. It is way quicker than pulling out the plastic leveler things.

Yep - a Californy plated ranch truck parked up a living quarters hoss trailer across from us one time on the coast. Campground walkers gawking and whispering. Owner walks around and opens the back door and there was a BMW 1200 GS standing there munching hay. Guy looks over at our bike camp and says "dual purpose bike, dual purpose trailer..."
