    I use them and I like them, they seem pretty well built and practical.

    If you are buying something to level rather than make your own out of wood, etc. I think either Lynx Levelers or a BAL leveler.

    I bought Lynx levelers before even knowing about a BAL leveler so I can't really compare.

    We have them and they work just fine. I think it's pretty easy to build a platform with them and use their chocks to keep everything from moving around.

    Also, when changing a tire, they are handy to place under the jack as many can't really lift the PU high enough w/o something under them.

    I bought some and liked them. My dad seen mine in use and he has a 26' motor home and said he is going to get some. He liked the convenience of the carrying bag and said carrying around wood was a pain

    Have them and love them. I also have the flat toppers to go with them. Not only are they great for leveling the p.u. but they come in handy for all kinds of things around the camp site. Ever have one of those picnic tables that seemed to wobble no matter where you put it?

    I have two sets of them. They are so much better that just plain wood. I also have the chock that connects to them. Very nice...

    A friend with a TT told me about the Lynx levelers. Got 'em, use 'em, love 'em! Makes leveling a breeze compared to pieces of wood. I also got the Lynx chocks and our PUP has been rock steady even through a couple of healthy storms while camping.

    Definitely worth it, for me.

    I bought the BAL leveler. It is really easy and also acts a wheel chock. Just park the camper and ratchet until the camper is perfectly level. I would recomend it to anyone.

    Traindude,
    I bought them and used them for a season. Then I bought a Bal leveler. I upgraded because I never could get it level first time with the blocks. I had to pull off and back on. The blocks are 1" thick so that is as close as you can get. I find the BAL is quicker and more precise but that's just me. <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Smile">

    That said, I still use the Lynx at home when I park my camper so that I don't have to leave the BAL deteriorating in the weather. And the Lynx block is a great platform for the tongue jack. They are also lighter more compact and come with a case. As someone above stated you will also want to get the lynx chocks for the side that you are raising. They have special notches and connect into the blocks to give you one, integrated unit. You can use the cheap yellow ones on the other side.

    I just used mine for the first time. Worked great, we don't usually camp in real campgrounds so the lynx worked better for me on the soft ground and sand. Used for wheel jack and stabilizers. I also like that they are really light and come in a nice case I can carry around the PUP while I'm setting up.

    I love our Lynx! Best thing I've bought for the PU so far. Or PU is a dual axle so the BAL was not an option for me. The Lynx lock together so they won't slip like stacked wood will when you try to back onto a stack. They also come in handy under the tongue so you don't have to crank it down all the way. Also under corner stabilizers on uneven or sandy ground. I usually end up with two under each wheel on one side and then use the rest under the tongue.

    I like my Lynx levelers, however, if I'd known about the BAL leveler before I bought the Lynx, I would've bought the BAL. Lynxs are pretty cheap, lightweight, and come with a carry case. I, too, have found that I've had to roll on, roll off, and re-level to get it just perfect. I'm asking Santa for a BAL leveler for next Christmas!
    Happy Camping, Kit

    I got the Lynx bag (thrown in) with the trailer when we bought it, but ordered the bal after our first trip out. I love the Lynx for under each support in sand, or under the tongue jack, but man the bal really makes quick and precise work of it.

    Just bought our first Lynx ($40) at local RV center, took it home and try them. They are great, and easy to set up. I have not experienced the BAL leveler therefore can not compare.

    I like my Lynx leveling blocks - their own tote, and easy to rinse off when sandy/dirty, moldproof, slime proof and I've used them as additional sand-pads for the stabilizers, as well as the tongue jack. Well worth the cost in my opinion.
