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.
