Wood or wood not? What you should know about leveling your RV with wood blocks

Finding that level “sweet spot” for your RV doesn’t have to be rocket science. Lynx Levelers have made leveling as easy as 1-2-3.

While some of you may be tempted to reach for the trusted ‘ol wood block, here are a few things you should know about leveling with wood:

Save a tree, use Lynx Levelers.


1) Bugs and rotting

Wood often carries bugs, including wood-eating ones like termites. Bugs compromise the structural integrity of your wood blocks, and ultimately cause decay and breakage.
In addition, nature unfortunately doesn’t come with a dependable warranty program, which means your stack of wooden blocks is prone to mould and bound to rot with time (and changing weather conditions).

With time, wood blocks tend to get deformed, so no matter how perfectly you measure their size at the beginning, they’re prone to wear and tear from the elements. Plywood especially tends to swell, separate, and hold water.

Lynx Levelers are made of plastic, so you’ll never have to worry about pesky bugs or damp conditions threatening your RV vacation.

2) It’s heavy and takes up valuable storage space

Most RVers carry an assortment of wood blocks. Wood blocks, however, are heavy and you’ll have to carry a whole stack of them to meet all your leveling needs. They get even heavier when wet and take up much more storage space than a small bag of levelers would.

Lynx Levelers not only withstand tremendous weight, but are also lightweight, compact, simple to assemble, and even simpler to unsnap and store away until next time.

3) Stacking boards

If you’re trying to lift your RV up four to five inches on stacked boards, you’ll have a very difficult time doing so, especially if you’re pushing uphill.

Lynx Levelers are made to interlock and can raise your RV in one inch increments to help you level slowly and safely.


Save a tree, use Lynx Levelers.
