Wheel Blocks Keep RV's, Trailers Level
Blocking and leveling an RV, travel trailer, or other rig is a lot easier with the "B-Level" wheel blocks invented by Brian Bain of Barrhead, Alberta. He came up with the idea after he grew tired of putting boards under the wheels. He and his wife, Vicki, enjoy camping and say it was always hard to get just the right combination of boards to successfully level their fifth wheel trailer.
  The B-Level is a lightweight, two-piece device made of strong, cross-link plastic that'll support up to 5,000 lbs. Each set weighs less than 15 lbs. and is easy to fold up for storage.
  "You just set them either ahead of or behind the wheels on the low side, and then pull the unit forward or back it up onto them," Brian explains. "Because there are three stages to it, you have between 1 and 4 in. of lift, depending on what you need. It only takes a few seconds, and your trailer is simultaneously leveled and blocked."
  Bain's device can also be useful for winter storage of the RV, to keep the wheels off the ground.
  He's currently producing the B-Level in the color red, but plans to change to yellow. Either color makes it less likely that it'll be forgotten by campers when they head out for home.
  The invention is designed to work on single or tandem axle RVs. If there's more than 3 in. of space between the trailer tires (halfway up), an insert is required and Bain can also supply this.
  Depending on his own changing costs, Bain sells the patent pending B-Level for between $110 and $130 (Can.), plus shipping. They can be ordered directly from him.
