Go to this link provided above. I think this is what you are looking for.  I have been using the leveling steps to lift my Sensation so I can work under the van.  The step is best only for single axle caravan. Vastrap do have a solution for double axle but its a bit to low still.

I doubt it if you are going to save that much by not buying at the dealers. I bought mine at the dealers and it wasn't that expensive.

Yes those you buy at the dealers are not that expensive. But they can only handle a certain weight and that weight is not specified on the box. 

My brother had a set like that and dropped them in the dustbin after using them once while camping at Buffelspoort Dam.  He had a 2000 Model Jurgens Penta.  The criss cross plastic that is suppose to help to carry the weight of the caravan broke and collapsed.

I have a photo of it somewhere on a camping CD.  So yes the yellow Camp Quip ramps work but the weight of a Jurgens Penta, Palma is just over their limit specially if the ground is very uneven on the spot where the ramp is placed.

Any caravan under the weight of a Penta would work fine on them.

Maybe now of better quality. I am just listing a concern that happen and I was witness too.

It is a good product but I would not buy it for a heavy caravan.

I have one of those yellow ramp levellers but haven't used it.

Generally we unhook & then push/pull the van to where we want it.

If it is not level, how do you pull it up on the ramp on the lower wheel?

I just use the scissor jack under the axle until it is level then put the steadies down & leave the jack taking the bulk of the load for the duration of our stay.

Yes, it may get stolen, but not so far; and it is not obvious.

Been levelling with a jack as well when required...

Ja Brommer, I do believe in the main weight/mass being on the axle and not the steadies.

I use the jockey wheel to take some of the weight as well.

Dis n goeie vraag wat Steamer het. Hoe kry  jy jou karavaan op jou geel blokke. As jy movers het is dit baie eenvoudig. Soms kan jy hom nog aan jou haak tot op die blokke kry. Maar wat gemaak as jy dwars op n staanplek moet staan....geen plek vir kar en geen movers? ....en geen jack?

Voor die movers het ek die volgende gedoen.

  1. Karavaan op sy plek gestop om so min of meer die posisie van die level blok te bepaal.
  2. Dan die wiel wat nie die level blok gebruik nie met bakstene of iets voor en agter gestop.
  3. Die wa geswaai, met een wiel wat stil staan. Dan level blok op sy plek geplaas en die wa terug geswaai tot die wiel op is. Ja dit is span werk maar gelukkig daai tyd het die kinders nog saam gekamp en die terug swaai is effe makliker want die neus van die wa loop so bietjie afdraande vir 'n momentum-pie.
  4. Meeste kere maar met die voertuig opgetrek dis baie makliker.

Dit hang natuurlik af of jy gebruik maak van hulp om die tent op te slaan. Verlede jaar toe ons by MacNicols Bazley Beach gekamp het, wou die helpers nie eers gehad het dat ek die movers gebruik nie. Hulle het die wa geposioneer en hom toe gestoot tot op die leveling blok. 

Moeg geploeg.

Dit help vreeslik baie Chris as daar hulp byderhand is.  Meeste plekke waar ek die blok in die verlede gebruik het was maar by damme en langs riviere.

Dan is die staanplekke nie so gelyk nie en die oorde het nie hulp wat kan help nie.  By meeste bekende oorde sal mens hulp hê soos die waarvan jy praat.

Op ander plekke moet jy maar plan sien.
