I just did a search for this product on the forum and got no results.

I'm curious about this gizmo....looks like a good ideal....has anyone tried it out, and if so would you recommend it for leveling a travel trailer.  Seems like it would be really easy to use with an RV.  It isn't cheap, though!

Well, I've used these on my last two trailers, and they work just fine, and at $6, they are bit more cost effective. 

I mount them on the front drivers side corner of the trailer.  I can see the side to side level in the mirror, and the front to back one, your at the tongue already any way.

Just make sure you have the trailer level when you put them on.

The RV EZ level looks like it would work great for a Class A where you are controlling the jacks from the inside. For a trailer, you would have to adjust, look inside, adjust, look inside, etc.

I am with Hatcity with the stick on levels. Leveled the camper with a framing level on the floor the first time, stuck the levels on the side and front of the camper at the driver's side corner. I can immediately see which side needs blocks and approx how many, and then stand right there as I jack up the camper for front to back leveling.

Wife and I have walkie-talkies and she would be in the trailer looking at the level and letting me know 'when.'  Don't see why that wouldn't work unless there is a safety issue.  But....your way is a lot more 'cost effective.'  Maybe someone else will chime in and give another perspective.  Thanks for your suggestion.

I'm with Tim, the stickons are all you need.My front one is in the middle of the front but I have mounted them the same as Tim on another trailer and it was fine also.

Agree with everyone else 100% $400 for a level Huh?

How I do it cause DW is worthless (shhh, I still love her (didn't say that out loud), but for hooking up or backing and leveling...) I've got this and a backup camera but that's another post.


link here http://images.campingworld.com/is/image/CWI/3000/30939nNEW.jpg?
I can clearly see when backing or pulling into the site and then I can figure by 1 inch increments  on the level what needs to happen to level by myself all from the rear view mirror.

It pained me to drill into the fiberglass front but some silicone on the screws and 4 years later no more issues with the DW or trailer fiberglass font.
We are both much happier  Grin

Just so you get the idea that level is approximately 12" wide and easy to see from your rear view mirror.

Good luck, have fun and just camp.

I don't even do the stick on's. I actually just have a magnetic level that is stuck on my frame. When I pull the trailer in I first put it on the bumper then back on the frame. Also can work around the house to boot.

Really can't see spending any more on a level then what $10, $15 or $20.

I'm really not a fan of getting sucked into Camping Worlds neet little things all produced in China.
