You won't have that problem in Colorado.....or TN for that matter.

Here is another idea for leveling blocks I've used on occasion. I carry a small bag/crate of pine lumber scraps from projects pretty much every time I camp. I use them for kindling but they often come in handy as leveling blocks too.

I use Eric’s rocks as first choice, then my Andersen levelers from an easy to get place in my top box followed by the GoTread device that I haven’t had to use.

For my trailer, I use scrap cedar 1” planks cut into squares. Cedar is great because of natural resistance to rot and bugs. Firewood, whether brought along or found on site, is also a great option of course.

Iíve got a set of Lynx Levelers, but at 10k lbs and two years old theyíve squished enough that several canít nest anymore.

I also carry Tri-Linx blocks. They work great, donít take up much room and are fairly cheap compared to most other stuff in the van. So far they have held up under the weight of my 10K lb van. I also carry a bubble level that my wife uses to final check my leveling work.

I thought of another idea that I've done but it can be messy. The upside is it takes no space IN your van:

If you have any open spots outside of the frame rail on either side you can easily bungee Lynx type levelers to the frame. I've done this several times. I also bungee a one gallon plastic fuel can often. Priceless when you need it.

We use GoTreads. They combine as traction mats and levelers. https://gotreads.com/

Rocks. Also have 4 x Maxtrax if I am too drunk to find rocks or if they are not readily available. They offer many leveling possibilities.
