Sure, we can pick up a perfectly functional set of RV wheel chocks made by a reputable company. But, what is the fun in that? Not to mention that it could cost you upwards of $100 to do so. As it turns out you can make a perfectly functional set of RV wheel chocks for a fraction of the price. You also get to keep the satisfaction of making something yourself and telling your friends about it! Now that’s a value.

This idea was introduced to us by Rverscorner.com and from the looks of it has been fine tuned over time. RV wheel chocks are intended to stabilize your RV and keep the front to back movement to a minimum when people are up and about inside. The point of this design to to lock the wheels together to minimize any movement as a result of the wheels. These RV wheel chocks use a simple design to accomplish that, consisting of only a few easy to find items.
List of Materials for Custom Made RV Wheel Chocks:
- 4” x 4” at a length long enough to cut the 2 pieces necessary for the wheel chocks
- 1/2” or 5/8” threaded rod (Can replace with a 3/4” Pipe Clamp for added ease of use. Does add to the total cost)
- Nylon Locking Nuts, Regular Nuts, and Washers to fit the threaded rod (Disregard if using pipe clamp)
The total cost to make RV wheel chocks using this method should come in around $20 each for the threaded rod version and $25 each for the pipe clamp version. We are sure that some of you may already have 4”x 4” pieces laying around or a pipe clamp. So at the end of the day it may be just a few dollars to make these RV wheel chocks work for you.

Sounds like a lesson learned the hard way! Great tip, a few coats with some of the fluorescent spraty paint and that should keep it noticable. Unless the DW disagrees with the looks of it!
I made a set of these a few years back a love them. But one suggestion, I also painted mine Black as in the photo and on one trip, forgot to take them out as pulled out. One was totally mangled. Mine are now “School Bus”Yellow. We haven’t forgotten them since
