How Do You Level a Camper Without a Truck?

Levelling a camper without a truck is not as hard as it may seem. There are a few methods you can use to make sure your camper is level and safe to sleep in. The key is to find the right method for your situation, so you can get the most out of your camping experience.

Adjustable Leveling Blocks: These are easy to use and can be found at most campgrounds. They allow you to adjust the height of the camper so that it is perfectly level on each side. You’ll need to measure the distance between each wheel and mark it with a ruler or tape measure.

Shovels and Ropes: A common method used by seasoned campers is to use shovels and ropes to level the camper. This involves digging trenches in front of each wheel, stretching ropes across these trenches, and then adjusting the height of each wheel until they are all at the same level.

Weight Distribution Hitch: If you have access to a weight distribution hitch, this can be used to level your camper without a truck. This device allows you to adjust the weight distribution between your tow vehicle and your trailer, which can help make sure that both sides are evenly balanced.

Leveling Wedges: Leveling wedges are another option if you don’t have access to a truck or adjustable leveling blocks. These wedges fit between the wheels of your camper and can be adjusted until the camper is leveled on both sides.


Making sure your camper is level before sleeping in it is important for safety reasons.

With some planning and preparation, you can easily level a camper without a truck using adjustable leveling blocks, shovels, ropes, weight distribution hitches, or leveling wedges. No matter which method you choose, safety should always be your top priority when camping!
