You won’t always be on leveled surfaces when you go camping and often times you’ll need your campervan to be even so that it can stand in place securely. However, not all caravans have hydraulic or electric levelers, and that’s completely fine. In this article we’ll talk about the easiest ways to buy and use campervan levelling ramps that you can easily find on the internet.

Campervan levelling ramps help you lift your tyres on RV leveling blocks. If you don’t have an automatic system to do it for you, leveling blocks are a good way to have your caravan in an even position. As a general rule, you should keep at least one tyre on the ground. Other tyres should be adjusted to level your unit.

If you plan on camping in modern RV parks, then most spaces will be already leveled and you won’t have to go through the trouble of leveling your RV. However, national and state parks are a different story and you’ll often times come across issues without the support of leveling ramps. Here’s a list of the things you can do to properly level your RV.

Turn your engine off and pull up your parking brake. You don’t have to roll around during this, just make sure you’re a couple of meters away from where you want to end up parking that trip.

Get outside of your RV and start examining the ground. Decide how many blocks you’ll need and which side will need to be lifted. It might take a few tries to get everything right, so take your time to think everything through.

Put your campervan levelling ramps up against the tyres you want to raise. If you’re stacking multiple blocks or ramps, put them together like stepping legos, as you’ll want to be able to drive up them in ramp style.

Start your engine and release the parking brake. Slowly start accelerating up the blocks and you may want to keep a foot on the brake when you reach the center of the campervan leveling blocks. If there’s someone else with you, it will be much easier as they can guide you through the whole process.

Step out again and evaluate your situation. Are you level yet? Does something need to go down or up? If so, you might want to repeat the process one more time.

Once you settle, you can set your parking brake with your transmission in park and turn off the engine. You’re all set!
