    Millenco quarto seems to most people's choice. I have triples which are ok. Only use when wine glass slides off the table !
    Edit : they are quite large so make sure you have space to store them

    Millenco are too large for our Van, they sit in my garage unused. The old yellow fiamma levelers do the job, we've had ours for 15 years. I think levelers are important, to get a good nights sleep, and to stop the wine from sliding off the table. We came back from 2 months in France yesterday. The weather was largely atrocious, the levelers were used at every campsite and most aires, but we slept well, rotten if your feet are higher than your head, or the lean makes you roll out of bed. And the wine problem of course.

    1. It's important if you want your fridge to work - more than 6 degrees out and it might fail

    2. Milenco Quatro gives maximum height

    Why should the wine slide off the table?
    Keep it snug and safe in your tum tum:)

    We have an E560 and use Milenco Quattro Levelling Blocks. Had some Fiamma yellow ones but they couldn't take the weight and split eventually, they also weren't very high. They do take up space as stated above but fit neatly under the bed next to, and parallel to the bathroom wall, we can still get the loungers, table etc. in. It amazing how often we end up on the top level on them.

    People always mention the thing about a maximum of 6 degrees for the fridge to work. I'm guessing most people have never experienced or calculated how steep 6 degrees actually is. The most out of level I've ever seen on the app on my phone is 3 degrees and that was quite a significant lean. I dread to think what 6 degrees would be like. I did calculate it over the wheelbase of our van and over 3.45m wheelbase 6 degrees equates to 362mm (14") difference between the height of front and rear wheels. Across the van it's still over 8 inches (200mm) difference. No levellers are going to correct that :)
