Level the bus why camping?

What do you use to get the bus level and stable while camping?

Boards mostly, shovel if necessary. I never bother with stability.

I thought blocks cut from stall mats seemed like a good idea, but I haven't actually tried it yet.

After a KOA experience much like a scene from Lucy's and Desi's movie "The Long Long Trailer", (our camp site sloped both down and to the side) I decided to give up on boards. I adapted an automotive port-o-liner and a set of tent trailer jacks into a hydraulic leveling system for Honeysuckle Rose, my 1935 Chevy Skoolie.
Jack

The valves allow me to set the height of each jack independent of the others.

I substituted the hydraulic rams for the original jacking system in the jacks.

This pic is of a trial fit. The flex lines now link up with steel tubing from the pump to each jack and no longer show.

Leave it to Jack to complicate what a couple of 2 x 12's would do!
