Best RV Leveling Blocks in 2020
(Camp Addict does NOT accept payment from any company to review or endorse their products.)
Trying to live in an RV that is parked out of level is weird.
Trying to walk on a floor that isn't close to level is the strangest feeling.
And camping should be fun, right?
RV leveling blocks help you get your rig level at your favorite campsite.
RV levelers are a pretty simple tool that every RVer needs.
Read the RV leveling block reviews below to learn which we consider to be the best.
If you want to learn more about RV blocks, read our RV Levelers Guide.

Best RV Leveling Block Reviews
The ins and the outs, the good and the bad, it's all here in our reviews of the best leveling systems you can get.
Your RV needs to be level if you have an absorption refrigerator.
Kept unlevel long enough, an absorption fridge will die. (most RV's use this type of fridge.)
Also, who wants to walk around and sleep in a tilted environment?
These levelers will keep you nice and level in the most questionable spots.
RV Blocks Compared
Easiest RV Leveler to Use
Andersen Camper Leveler
The Andersen Camper Leveler system is an ingenious design in the RV leveler world.
Gone are the days you have to GUESS how many RV leveling blocks to put under your tires to get level.
Continue Reading Andersen Camper Leveler System Review
Both Kelly and Marshall of Camp Addict use (and LOVE) Andersen levelers.
We still have block-style RV levelers as there are times when the Andersens won't get you high enough.
(Though you can use the Andersen as a 'ramp' to get up onto the leveling blocks if necessary.)
The issue with Lego-style leveling blocks is that if you get the number of RV leveling blocks you stack wrong, there's a lot of re-organizing necessary to get it right.
You have to get back in your rig or tow vehicle, back off of the blocks, get out, re-stack, get back in and try again.
It's a pain.
Using the Andersen Camper Leveler RV ramps system is very simple.
You only have to put the wedge in front of or behind your wheel(s), get in, and move until your partner tells you that you are level.
Even if you are solo, you can easily get out, check and get back in to either go forward or backward to adjust the height without having to remove or add blocks.
It works like a charm!
(Or you can get a leveling system that will tell you on your phone when you are level. The LevelMate Pro works very well for this. See more in the guide section.)
Andersen Levelers And Large Motorhomes
Andersen Levelers can be used on motorhomes with a couple of considerations.
1) They are made to be used on rigs that weigh up to 30,000 pounds
2) They will fit tires up to 32 inches in diameter.
Also, if your motorhome has dual rear tires (most do), then you will want to use two Andersen Levelers per side in the rear so that each of the tires is on a leveler.
Video Proof of Safety and Ease of Use
We found a very detailed online video by The Fit RV (James).
In the video, James talks about how he was afraid to pull too far forward with his Travato Class B motorhome while testing the Andersen Levelers.
His thinking was that if he pulled off the 4" end, the Anderson Leveler might damage his rig by hitting his running boards or something else.
This was a legit fear.
James tests things very thoroughly most of the time, and we trust and enjoy his videos and conclusions.
Andersen Leveler Alternative
Consider the Beech Lane Camper Leveler as an alternative to the Andersen Levelers. They work the same way but can be purchased for a little less money.
However, in his testing of the Anderson Leveler, we question this one part which he did not test.
Because he was afraid of pulling forward too far, he did not test 'the roll-off' of the 4" edge of the Anderson Camper Leveler.
This leaves an unanswered question: would the Anderson Levelers damage a low-riding rig?
In the video below by Anderson Levelers, they do demonstrate the roll-off on the 4" end.
If you watch, you can see how the tires roll off the 4" end VERY smoothly.
Additionally, the Anderson Camper Leveler seems to pretty much stay conformed to the tires until the pressure is totally off of the levelers.
You might think that the vehicle would drop off of the Anderson Levelers, but that's not the case.
The below video proof is enough to tell whether you think your rig would suffer any damage or not.
After we watched, we don't see how ANY rig could get damaged.
The Anderson Levelers stay conformed to the tires until the weight is totally off of them.
The worst they can do once the weight is off the levelers is to tip over and lean against whatever they may touch.
By then your rig has stopped moving.
Additionally, these RV levelers can be cut shorter at the narrow edge of the device, per the manufacturer (instructions here - PDF).
That's exactly what Marshall did with his since his tires are so close together.
This will also keep it from being able to stab into any part of your RV once the RV drives off of it.
It would also help if you have tires that are very close together just like Marshall's rig.
As long as you don't keep pulling forward once your rig is off, it looks to us that any kind of rig is safe from damage.
Here's the video proof.
If you are strapped for time, fast forward to the 1:10 mark.
Andersen Camper Leveler Manufacturer Demo
Also, James brings up the issue of the degree of change when trying to level from front to back.
But wouldn't this be the case with leveling blocks as well?
Because the wheelbase is wider front to back, the lift of the tires will be of a lesser degree than the lift will be side-to-side.
With a travel trailer, this is compensated by using the hitch to raise or lower the front end.
The hitch can be raised or lowered much more than you could raise or lower it simply using blocks or the Andersen Camper Leveler.
Here's the FitRV video (James) explaining his testing the Andersen Camper Leveler with his Travato Class B motorhome:
Anderson Camper Leveler Demo by The Fit RV
We included both videos so you can decide for yourself if the Anderson Levelers will or won't work with your rig.
Personally we have had zero issues rolling off the fat end of the Andersens.
(In the guide section of this page, below, you may read Amanda Watson's review of her Anderson Leveler)

Best RV Leveling Blocks
Lynx Levelers are quite popular RV leveling blocks in the RVing world.
It's likely something you have seen before all around the campground.
You know, those bright orange stackable thingys you see under RV tires.
Those are usually Lynx Levelers and they are leveling out the RV they are under.
Continue Reading Lynx Levelers Review
RV leveling blocks are the most common system of manually leveling an RV.
Lynx Levelers are arguably the most popular brand of this type of RV leveler.
They are made to let water pass through but also to grip the ground.
These are designed like building blocks that stack on top of each other securely.
You can use just one RV leveling block under each tire.
Or you can build a pyramid of Lynx Levelers.
Then you pull forward onto the top of the levelers and check your level.
If you misjudged the number of 'blocks' to use, you have to pull off of the Lynx Levelers and re-stack until you get it right.
Learning Your Lynx Levelers
Each Lynx Leveler will give you approximately 1 inch of 'lift'.
You will get pretty good at estimating how tall of a stack of Lynx Levelers you need if you know how many inches from level your rig is side-to-side.
If you have a bubble level installed, it will give you a very good idea of where to start.
These work great for single axle trailers as well as double axle trails.
However, it can be an issue if you have double axles that are fairly close together.
There may not be enough room in between the axles to set up more than a height of 2.
There will be a lot of back-and-forth maneuvering you will have to do to get them stacked.
(Or you can follow the instructions in the below video on how to level your tandem/dual axle RV with Lynx Levelers.)
Or, you might need to get two sets of RV leveling blocks.
You can build one solid ramp in front of your wheels so you can drive onto the solid stack of levelers.
This usually requires more than just the 10 blocks that come in one Lynx Leveler kit.
How to Level Single Axle RV with Lynx Levelers
How to Level Dual Axle RV with Lynx Levelers
On rocky ground, Lynx Levelers can develop stress cracks due to their honeycomb construction.
Well, they are made to be on unlevel ground, aren't they?
Sure, but this doesn't stop them from cracking.
Still, they do tend to last quite a long time.
And yes, they will fade if kept out in the sun quite a bit.
Optional Lynx Leveler Accessories
There are a couple of optional accessories you can purchase to use with your Lynx Levelers:
Lynx Caps are used on top of Lynx Levelers to provide a smooth surface for your RV's tires to be on.
They may also provide a flat surface for your trailer's tongue jack or stabilizers.
Lynx Leveler Caps come in a pack of 4.
Lynx Caps (4-pack)
Lynx Stop 'N Chock
Lynx Stop 'N Chock are used as wheel chocks and/or stops (when pulling up onto your Lynx Levelers) and 'lock' into the Lynx Levelers.
Lynx Stop 'N Chock come in a 2-pack.
Lynx Stop 'N Chock (2-pack)
This RV leveling block system does come with a 10-year warranty.
The Lynx Levelers website has a place where you can register your product.
If something happens and your levelers break within the first year, you will not have to pay for shipping on the new product.
Because they are durable, pretty easy to use, and they are economically priced, Lynx Levelers get very good reviews and are well received.
They are also the type of RV leveling blocks that both Camp Addict's co-founders have and sometimes use in situations when the Andersens aren't tall enough.
Stabilizing Your RV With Lynx Levelers
You can use Lynx Levelers (and optionally Lynx Caps) to create a stable 'landing pad' for your RV's stabilizers.
This is particularly useful when you are parked on a softer surface that your stabilizer might sink into.
How To Stabilize Your RV With Lynx Levelers
Lynx Levelers RV Leveling Blocks Features and Specs:
- Sold in a 10 pack
- Comes in a blue nylon zipper bag
- Very lightweight: Bag of 10 Lynx Levelers weighs just a few pounds
- Can also be used as a support base for hitch, jacks
- Dimensions: 8.5 x 8.5 x 1.5"
- Weight Limit: 40,000 lbs
- Made in the USA
- Warranty: 10 years
Runner-Up RV Leveling Blocks
Camco Leveling Blocks
Camco is our-runner up for RV leveling blocks.
While still a nice product, the downside of the Camco is its very limited warranty.
Camco offers only a one-year warranty compared to Lynx Leveler's 10-year warranty.
Camco Leveling Blocks
Camco FasTen Leveling Blocks
Continue Reading Camco RV Leveling Blocks Review
Camco's RV leveling blocks run pretty close to the same price as our #1 choice, the Lynx Levelers.
This makes them a great alternative.
You really cannot go wrong with either choice.
We only have personal experience with the Lynx Levelers (and Lynx Levelers state the weight rating, while these Camco levelers do not).
Camco also has a version (FasTen) that is twice as wide as the Lynx Levelers.
Lynx is not the only producer of RV leveling blocks in the game.
Camco has fairly similar reviews and does offer the FasTen version (wide).
We leave the decision on which you prefer up to you.
Camco RV Leveling Blocks
Camco FasTen Levelers for Dually Wheels
Camco also makes a much wider set of RV leveling blocks for dually wheels.
It's a GREAT solution for RVs with this type of wheel system.
It's unclear why Lynx has not stepped up and made a similar product.
Here's a great video below showing them in action.
Camco FasTen RV Leveling Blocks (For Dual Wheels)
Camco RV Leveling Blocks Features and Specs:
- 10 RV leveling blocks to a pack
- Comes with zippered storage bag (smaller sized 'normal' Camco RV leveling blocks)
- Comes with carrying handle (larger sized FasTen RV leveling blocks)
- Solid bottom resists sinking into the ground
- Plastic resin is UV stabilized
- Regular Camco RV Leveling Block Dimensions: 8.5" Wide x 8.5" Deep x 1" Tall
- FasTen Dually Leveling Block Dimensions: 17" Wide x 8" Deep x 1" Tall
- Weight Limit: Per Camco tech support, they don't specify a weight limit as different limits will apply depending on what terrain the blocks are used on. For example, if the leveling blocks are used on concrete they can withstand a lot more weight then if they are used on rocky, uneven terrain.
- Made in the USA
- Warranty: 1 year
Best 'Different' Leveler
BAL Light Trailer Tire Leveler
Suitable for VERY Light Trailers Only!
We have not ever used this type of system and don't have any friends who have used it.
Because it's out there and it's well-reviewed, we decided to list it as an option.
The BAL Light Trailer Tire Leveler looks pretty easy to use and mechanically functional, but only for lighter, smaller trailers such as popups, teardrops, and Casitas under 1,700 lbs.
Continue Reading BAL Light Trailer Leveler Review
The BAL Light Trailer Tire Leveler only has you backing onto it once, or you slide it around your tire.
From there, you ratchet the scissor-style unit to lift your tire.
We don't see any flaws aside from the annoyance of the ratcheting that one has to do to lift and lower your rig.
Oh, there is also the 'minor' issue of this system sinking into soft ground, so it's probably best to use on hard surfaces only.
This system also COULD alleviate having to chock the other side, but we still recommend sticking with a separate chock.
The BAL Light Trailer Tire Leveler is a limited use RV leveling system since it can only be used with lightweight RVs (1,700-pound limit).
BAL Light Trailer Leveler Features and Specs:
- Material: Steel with corrosion resistant finish
- Fits 13", 14" and most 15" wheels
- Weight: 14 lbs
- imensions: 22" x 19" x 3.8"
- Weight Limit: 1,700 lbs
- Warranty: 1 year
Hopkins Towing Endurance Leveling System
There's also an RV leveling block system called the Hopkins Towing Solutions Endurance Leveling Kit.
The system requires a lot of work on your part to make them.
They aren't any cheaper than the others, which do not require you to build any part of the system at all.
We aren't reviewing them, but if you are an avid do-it-yourselfer, this system might be for you.
Check out the video below to have a look at what is entailed.
(It involves you using your own wood to create blocks to drive your rig on.
Beech Lane Leveling System - An Andersen Alternative
The Beech Lane Camper Leveler is very similar to the Andersen Camper Leveler (heck, even the name is similar!).
It too is a wedge-style leveler with a chock to help 'lock' it into place.
And they have similar dimensions to the Andersen Leveler.
It is slightly better rated.
It can take 5,000 pounds more weight capacity (35,000 pounds versus 30,000 pounds).
Beech Lane Leveler Grip Tape Issues
The single pack Beech Lane Leveler comes with grip tape installed on the tire side of the leveler.
Reviewers complain that this tape comes off fairly easily.
Beech Lane says to let your tires cool down before using the levelers with grip tape.
This is because tire heat can cause the tape to lose adhesion (yeah, because it's really practical to wait until your tires cool off before leveling your rig).
Or they say you can remove the tape.
Which defeats the purpose of having the tape.
Due to the issues with the grip tape not working so great, Beech Lane has done away with it on the 2-pack version of their camper levelers.
Instead of the grip tape, they have included two rubber mats (just like Andersen has available) which help to prevent these RV levelers from slipping as you roll your rig up onto them.
Why they don't include the rubber mat instead of the grip tape on the single pack of their RV leveling ramps is beyond us.
The Beech Lane Camper Levelers can be purchased for a little less money than the Andersen RV Levelers.
This gives a competitive reason to consider them.
Beech Lane Camper Levelers Features and Specs:
- Each Beech Lane Camper Leveler comes with the leveler itself and a chock
- Available to purchase as a single leveler or as a 2-pack (2-pack comes with rubber pads)
- Fits tires up to 32" in diameter
- Levels RV anywhere between 1/2 to 4" increments
- For tires close together, up to 4" can be sawed off of the narrow end of the RV leveler
- Weight Limit: 35,000 lbs
- Dimensions: 15" Long x 6" Wide x 4" Tall
- Lifetime warranty
Depending on what size and type of rig you have, the above reviews will help you select the right RV leveling blocks to fit your needs.
You can also read our RV Levelers Guide to learn more about leveling blocks.
We think that the Andersen Camper Leveler is the top dog here as it has a lifetime warranty and can be used with any size or style rig (within reason).
Still, the price tag might not work for you, so we featured other more economical options.
Whatever you do, don't get analysis paralysis.
Make a decision so you can get on the road that much sooner!
