    Advice please, Off to the NEC tomorrow to buy various accessories for our new MH. Levellers are on our list and I was wondering what the pros and cons are of different makes. Thanks for any advice offered, its great to get the opinions of experienced MH's.

    Get the best, I have Milenco 4 step, they are bulky but you wouldn't be without them.

    Yes I have the Milenco Quattro too - strong and high - at Salisbury last week we still didn't have enough height - first time in years though and it does slope a lot there - so I am making some ply strips to fit underneath. Like many of the modern motorhomes the front of our Benimar is very "nose" down

    I have Milenco triple, work for me. If you have 16" wheels Milenco do a new three step version with larger scallops to fit the bigger wheels, I would like these but they are to big for my locker.

    Thanks will look at the Millenco Quattro, believe our wheels are 15" so probably the 4 step one will do the job nicely.

    I have Milenco triple which, being new to motorhoming I was pleased with until I did the novice thing of driving right over them and one shattered.....Doh......
    They were still useable, but I stuck the pieces together with superglue when I got home but I don`t expect they will last, so I`ll get the quatro ones when funds allow.
    Naturally it was the fault of the OH for not getting out and guiding me !

    Hope you didn't damage the MH, will definately make sure the OH supervises when using them.

    if you drive up gently, you can "feel" the tyre climbing each level and just count them and stop in time. then leave van in gear or park to help the handbrake resist rolling back down when you switch off

    Quattros for us as well. Bit heavy and bulky for storing but really do the job - solid.
