I LOVE mine. Find the low side, put out the Andersons and slowly drive until you are perfectly level.

Are speaking of the angled ones you drive up on? Andersen makes several types. I have seen it mentioned that people have had them break, but don't know that for a fact.

They work great, but will slip on some surfaces so use the rubber pad which fixes the problem. I did have one break on asphalt (10,500# trailer). I emailed them a picture of the broken unit and Andersen sent out a new one swiftly.

I did try a different brand off Amazon as it looked heavier duty and came with a carry case. The ramp angle on it was too steep and the trucks e-brake wouldn't hold on it to get the chocks in. The smooth radius on the Andersens is a better design than the Amazon product.

Some complain they interfere with chocking their tires. I use Rotochocks so it isn't an issue for me.

I know it for a fact. One of mine broke while I was sleeping. It was quite a loud noise.

Had one slip, I haven't used since. I feel much more secure driving up on the interlocking blocks.

I am also concerned that when you try to take the chock out from under them that you may have to back up to release the pressure to remove the chock and may come off the back of the leveler which wouldn't be good.

Having seen them on a few youtube videos, I don't see where they are significantly better than a few pieces of 2x8.

Generally will find a different site if it needs more than 2 boards.

They break! Really a horrible idea. Pack some lumber with and be done with it.
