    having realised our old three way fridge (not aec) really struggles on gas when the slope is more than 1 degree in any direction, I feel the need to invest in some levellers..

    Anyone have a view on these?



    the last time I used levellers was as a tugger and they were a nightmare..more than once I pulled the van off the front edge so I quite fancy the ones with bumps rather than a smooth slope... but then I remember how much money this flippin wedding is going to cost and realise I should try cheaper ones..... :):):):)

    The millenco ones with steps are easy to use but big to store. All ramps are a pain to use, and we don't, but if you need to they are the best

    The fiamma standard size are in a neat bag and work well. Saying that we very rarely use them.

    The Fiamma ramps I originally bought had a hollow base, so they sank into wet grass. I've since replaced them with Millenco Quattros which have a solid base

    Milenco quattros for us. Yes they are big especially in a PVC but they do the job. Don't buy cheap ones as they are a waste of money.

    Keep an eye on Gumtree and ebay. Sets often come up.

    Milenco quattros for us to. See if you can buy second hand - often see them on ebay.

    The maypole ones don't lift the MH very much. We have these, you might get them cheaper if you shop around.

    They look good if the milenco ones on eBay go over the price I am happy with

    Milenco also do a 'triple' (3 level) as well as the 'quatro' (4 level). They don't lift quite as high as the quatro, but have a significantly smaller footprint, so easier to store and also a bit cheaper. Lighter weight too. We find them excellent for our needs.

    Had both the triple and Quattro Milencos. Well made and do the job.

    We have the Milenco triple, which are a good trade off between function and storage size. Much better than the Fiamma levellers which came with our first van.

    We went for the 'triple' (3 level) as wife struggled with weight of the 4 level and getting them in and out of garage as well as placing them under wheels. We find the 3 level gets the MH high enough to be level and if not we move to another pitch or area.

    I've used Fiammas without problem since Adam was a lad. They only lift about 2" but I haven't needed more. Having said that fridges over the last 10 - 15 years have improved over the early ones - you shouldn't need to level better than for comfortable walking about inside. Both me and my fridge are happy as long as the bubbles in my T shaped level aren't hitting the ends of the tubes.
