I’ve become a fan of the Lego like Lynx Levelers.
They have flat tops you can add that I most often use to link two blocks for a wider single level base.
They also have locking wheel chocks you can install and back up against, held in place partly by the wheel weight on the block base.
I still carry a lot of wood blocks for my attached & extra stabilizers. I’ve had to use them and the Lynx blocks to build first and second steps on hill side lots.
Granted, my TT is only a 4K# GVWR.

I used wood for years. It works OK. No slippage.
Wood can soak up water. That makes them weigh more when transporting, and make a wet spot in the bin. But they are cheap, and if they break you throw them on the campfire (assuming you haven't painted them.)

Now I almost exclusively use the Lynx blocks. They are lightweight. Do not soak up water. Hose any mud or dirt off, leave in the sun for few minutes to dry. We have 4 sets, we got them for free. Each rig we bought over the years came with a set. One set came via a door prize at a RV show, another was a gift.

I carry 4 pieces of plywood 18x24 to put under them on soft ground or grass. Give them a bigger footprint and do not sink into the ground.
The two different brands of plastic blocks (Lynx and Camco) are not interchangeable. They do not interlock with each other. So you must keep buying the same brand if you want to interlock them.

Well, I fill my fresh water tank with 50 gallons of water before a long weekend camping trip.. If I was really "worried" about weight, I guess I would not do that.. [emoticon]

Also what else I have loaded in the rig in general.. Just to have what I want "just in case" kind of a thing.. I usually don't even touch 10% of what I haul! ha, ha...

Anyway, don't fret the little things.. Do whatever works best for you and that's how you will enjoy your time in your rig best..

Remember, "what works best for ME is not what is going to work best for YOU"

@Oregonman, what do you use currently for leveling blocks or boards? Why do you feel the need to change?

Single axle trailer, 3 short pieces of lumber will do about anything you'd need in a reasonable parking location.

I used to mess around with boards and blocks and all of that.

Then I got these and NEVER looked back. These made my camping life soooo much easier.

Then I got this and my camping life is complete.

With these I can level my trailer in about two minutes and be in my chair enjoying a cold beverage in under 5 minutes.

No boards or blocks or any of that for me ever again!
