    Having now stayed on several sites where my levelling blocks have proved to be pretty useless I've decided to splash out and get some better ones. I have the Fiamma Magnum ones ( I think) but could do with some that have a bit more height to them. I'm carrying several bits of decking around to boost these up but still not doing the job in places. Does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations? :Wink:

    You must be staying on some lopsided plots then:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    The range is here, take your pick!

    Just spotted a van up from me using the Milenco ones. I seem to end up on C&CC sites that are badly sloping - this being my 2nd. The one in Sevenoaks had racks of wooden blocks that someone had made which was a help but nothing like that here, just a Jobsworth assistant warden :Angry:

    I use the Milenco Triple blocks - the Quattros were too big to fit in the locker where I wanted to store them. The Triples are also quite a bit cheaper than the Quattros, and have been fine for use with The Beastie (more substantial than the Fiamma version).

    Mine just get shoved in the van inbetween stops so shouldn't be a problem. My Fiamma ones are looking a bit bent after 12 months constant use

    We broke our fiamma blocks within the first 2 weeks of using them but didn't want to pay the money to buy some new ones after such a short time but had to buy the bullet her at malvern and we bought some milenco blocks, which are £33 and they are recommended

    I bought a set of Milenco's off Janine at the Bring & Buy & they have proved to be great.

    Easier to mount, :Eek!: and you can feel your way up them as you drop into each depression.

    Started off with the Fiamma levellers, not impressed at all, they started splitting after first week! bought the Milenco Triple jobbies at the Belvoir meet and well pleased, would have bought the quatro's but locker not big enough.

    As said by previous poster you can feel your way up them and the drop into each depression.

    Just compared the sizes and though the quatro's are huge at 78cm long I really need the height they offer as the triples are only 12cm which is about the same as my lousy fiamma's. I'll find room to stash them. They can always travel in the passenger seat :thumb:

    Hi

    We have been using a caravan since 1992 and we are now travelling with our camper some years.

    We never use(d) levellers. I just put the caravan or camper on a spot and make sure that if there is a level problem it is minimized by the way i park and if some level difference is still at hand I make sure that when sleeping my head is higher than my feet :thumb::Eeek:

    Milenco quatro

    Hi I have a pair of Milenco Quatro levelling blocks in a bag that I no longer need. If anyone is interested please send me a pm, no reasonable offer refused.

    I think I've only stayed in 2 places so far this year where I didn't need to use mine. On one site in Kent I had one front wheel about 6" off ground the site was that sloping :Eeek:

    You should try the C&CC site at Cricceth, you can borrow massive ramps off the warden (£20 deposit) they have about a 10" lift, the ground slopes so much there and it still wasn't enough. This is on the field with hook-ups, the non-hook up field is better.
