The Fastest Way To Level A Camper
I was minding my own business, searching for a bike rack for our Shadow Cruiser camper when I happened across the Andersen Camper Leveler. "Brilliant," is all I could think.
Leveling a camper is important for a few reasons, one of the most important of which is that you can easily blow your refrigerator if it is running and your rig is unlevel. It's also incredibly uncomfortable to sleep in a camper that's not level - you'll either finding yourself sliding down in bed or rolling too close to the edge of the bed. The dogs walk around very confused too....
So, if you have a camper (doesn't matter what class), the Andersen leveler will quickly become your go-to tool when pulling into any camping spot, even those with a fairly level surface. Put a leveler (or two) under that wheel which is on the low side and back the trailer onto the leveler until the rig is level. We have levelers on all sides of the camper so it will be very easy for one of us (read: me) to tell the driver (read: John) when the camper is level. All you need to do after that is drop the stabilizers, pop a beer, set up your outdoor living space and carry on with the dreamy state of being outdoors with all the conveniences you love.
Here's a few of my other RV related articles that you might like - I'm new to RVing (bought the rig last year) so check back in frequently for new articles:
Being on the road in a camper is just such total joy - until something goes wrong. John and I have chosen these times to be 'interesting' instead of 'maddening.'
The below items are some of my favorite things for the camper. Note: we own all of these items.
This ice maker is a life saver when camping. Never ever run out of ice again. The thing is a work horse and puts out up to 28 lbs. of ice a day.
This little propane camp fire is a great addition to any camping rig. It's allowed even in those areas where open fires are not.
This camping table folds into a small packet - easily portable.
