We think this is the best level for leisure vehicles ever made. It effectively makes other levels look like toys. We are very proud of the light weight innovative design (patent pending) registered design. This gets over all of the problems using conventional levels on soft ground, but more importantly it’s twice as high as conventional plastic levels, which are never quite high enough.
Complete with storage bag.
The worlds only 4 step Polymer level. This is the tallest and widest level ever made for a Caravan or Motorhome. Incorporates lattice, high-grip upper tread surface. Pocketing the wheel at every height eliminating the need for chocks. Solid base, which makes it suitable for use on soft ground or sand
High grip leading edge eliminates the need for gripper plates.
With an extremely generous lift height of 16cm, the Milenco Quattro Level offers a higher lift than most conventinal caravan levelling ramps. A 4-step level which cradles the caravan or motorhome's tyre at each height to prevent slipping or rolling and ensure that your unit stays level for the duration of your stay.
Easy to drive up with a 25cm width, the high grip leading edge eliminates the need for separate gripper plates as seen on many other levellers, and stops the ramp from slipping away from under the tyre whilst driving on. A solid base makes the ramps suitable for soft ground or sand
Supplied as a pair with a storage bag included to keep the level ramps together and to keep caravan interior or car boot clean after use.
Milenco Quattro Level (pair) Features - Dimensions 20cm high x 24cm wide x 78cm long - Height of each step: 4cm, 8cm, 12cm, 16cm - Weight: 3.8kg per level - Capacity 1500kg per wheel = 6000kg Motorhome or 3000kg Caravan.

Motorhome Level Ramps
by Mr Mcpherson (23 Feb 2021)
I bought the Milenco ramps mainly to level up my motorhome when parked on our sloping drive. This allows me to use the fridge before a trip and use it as an occasional bed overnight for visitors. They do seem expensive, but seem good quality and strong. They are also the highest ramps on the market at the moment. I would recommend the product.
Good Quality Levellers

Excellent. Very strong and durable
by Mr Vincent (12 Aug 2020)
Arrived in specified time, used once and appears stronger than my previous ones.

Big And Strong
by Bobsky (14 Oct 2019)
They are the ultimate !! But beware they are a bit on the big side. Having a 4 ton camper they are spot on.
Very Sturdy And Grip Well
by Barbara (11 Oct 2019)
The only negative I have to say is that they are very heavy. But having said that they are brilliant for getting our large Motorhome level.
by Andrew Dobson (04 Oct 2019)
needed a second set of ramps for our rear double-wheeled 7.5te mptorhome. Seems fine so far

Have tried them and they have fixed my problem

Great addition for our motorhome
Strong, Good Height On Top Step, Excellent Next Day Delivery
by Anthony G. (02 Jul 2019)
After buying x 2 sets of the yellow plastic ramps which gave no height at all, i cam across these big boys, wish i had bought theses from the start, these are big boys, if your still not level after driving onto base 4 then you must be parked up on the side of a mountain, not sure what other reviewers mean about bits breaking off, dont faff about and waste money go for it and buy these from the start
by Stan The Man (02 Jul 2019)
Easy to use well packaged

by Joanne Watt (15 May 2019)
These are good wide solid chocks . Excellent non slip design. Make sure you interlock them before putting them back in the bag after use.
by Martin Baxter (24 Feb 2019)
felt sturdy and well able to take the weight
Excellent Motorhome Levellers
by Rob Dyson (05 Feb 2019)
Arrived as promised with minimal packaging, they came with a carry bag which wasn't noted in the information and was able to cancel the carry bag I had ordered! They are much more robust and higher than my current levellers so am sure we will get much better service from these units, the others never got us level just reduced the incline!!! looking forward to years of good service and level vans in the future. Thanks everyone. Rob
Good Quality And Comes With A Bag
by Robert F (23 Nov 2018)
Sturdy levelling ramps with good grips. They are heavy but I guess they will be ideal for a heavy motorhome. Came with a bag
When It Says Huge It Means It
by Keith (14 Oct 2018)
We had the smaller ramps that split due to uneven ground, so bought these which are large but have't used them yet
Bad Boy Wedges!
by Ian Ashton (01 Sep 2018)
These wedges are amazeballs!!!! Used little yellow wedges for years camping with VW camper, moved to the dark side and bought a motorhome but still want to farm/wild camp on slopes with a view. First outing they’ve enabled us to be level in the campers field with great views instead of being stuck with the tourers, no issues that other reviewers have posted. Love the bag that they come with, you do need a big slot for them, but if you want to properly tour with your motorhome these are a ‘must have’ imho
by Kathryn (09 Aug 2018)
Good item but they are heavy
Milenco Motorhome Quattro Ramps
by Gilliants (06 Aug 2018)
Look the part tried them at the weekend and worked as well as expected, only thing I would say is where you use the entire surface of the flatter wedge shaped chock ramps (we had another yellow set for decades) these are definite 4 levels, hoping they will last as well as they old ones and good they provide just that slightly greater height on the top step.
by Mikael Muller (24 Mar 2018)
SPOT ON !
The Four Dips Are Not Great For 16 Inch Wheels
by Andrew Sullivan (12 Mar 2018)
I had to return mine. The four dips are not great for 16 inch wheels. There was a no quibble return and the seller was excellent. I replaced it with a three tier version.
Also the dimples break off but that seems to have no issue with performance and I have been using my Milencos regularly for 6 months now without any problem.
by Stephen Clark (06 Feb 2018)
Strong and used most weekends away

by Amazon Customer (28 Aug 2017)
They are great. We have used them a lot (our other chocks had broken). They are a little heavier than our others but we are very pleased with them.
by Graham Cox (27 Aug 2017)
Excellent ramps loads of height, far superior to the others
by Ms Maureen Bassill (25 Aug 2017)
Perfect for our 28' motor home.
by Ian (19 Aug 2017)
Haven't had a chance to use these yet, but look and feel very substantial.
Bigger Levellers? Be Careful What You Wish For.
by Jimmyc (31 Jul 2017)
I bought these as I wanted some larger levelling blocks to cope with some of the very sloping sites you can get at festivals and these are certainly larger. Be very careful when ordering these that you'll be able to use them on your van as they may be too large to clear any skirts or fairings on your vehicle. Their size can also be an issue when it comes to storing them.
by Rich (28 Jun 2017)
These things are HUGE. They are brilliant, but make sure you have somewhere to store them as they are kinda massive!
by Mr W. (06 Jun 2017)
Everything just as I expected. Good service
The Daddy Ramps
by Dave Owen (26 May 2017)
Bought these for my Peugeot Boxer Motor home with 15'' wheels. The wheels sit well in the grooved area of the ramps, not sure 16'' wheels would sit so well. These are large & heavy which may put some off, but they are easy to drive onto - just don't over shoot the top! Carrying bag is of good quality & they fit neatly into it.
If you're pitching on sloping ground these will cope well with most situations covered. Only just had them so not sure how strong they will be in the long run.
They Really Are Big Tough And Heavy Duty.
by Nanqueen (02 May 2017)
Big tough and hopefully they will last longer than smaller cheaper ones!
by Ken (02 May 2017)
Brilliant Product, Many Other Motorhomers And Caravaners Have Asked ...
by Devongirl (11 Apr 2017)
Brilliant product, many other motorhomers and caravaners have asked about them. We find we do need the 4 steps sometimes, depending on the site, people with the 3 steps have talked to us about changing over. So spend the money only once and buy this 4 step set.
by Amazon Customer (10 Apr 2017)
Great to have option of 4 levels to help me level out my motorhome for a great night sleep
by Enrico C. (08 Apr 2017)
The best level ramps I have tryed in the last 35 years of camping car
by The Milkman (09 Mar 2017)
Excellent product, strong enough to carry the weight but quite heavy
Best Out There
by Bud (19 Nov 2016)
Bought these to put the Motorhome on over winter period. Rain water now pours off the rear instead of breaching roof lights. Tyres sit in well so they keep shape. Easy to drive up, no slipping. Good value for money. Wheel clamp not impeded when on the ramps, so keeping Motorhome safe.
by Albion59 (10 Nov 2016)
They Are Far Superior To The Joke Of A Pair I Had Previously
by Jeff (21 Oct 2016)
These are much bigger than I was expecting, they take up quite considerable space in the storage locker. They are high wide and strong and should last for ever. They are far superior to the joke of a pair I had previously. I purchased the Milenco ramps after staying on a site which was sloping a bit andvthe orevious pair were not high enough, so our motorhome was still sloping. After a couple of days the inferior ramps ha sunk into the ground and we were sloping even more. The new set are not hollow underneath so will not disappear intonthe grass. Very pleased
by Rob Nason (29 Sep 2016)
Very sturdy and easy to use.

Big Sturdy And Strong
by Peter mclean (23 Mar 2016)
As in the title, i am impressed with these ramps and the good price they are being sold at ( best price on the net at the minute.)
They are very sturdy and i also use them as car ramps for changing oil etc in my 4x4.
Well worth the money.
by Grumpyoldman (18 Mar 2016)
Wow! These are real beasts of levelling ramps, how did I manage with the piling things I had?

Excellent value and service.
by Nicholas Smith (15 Jul 2015)
After the speedy and very satisfactory resolution of the replacement of damaged goods on first arrival, I tried the product with my 3.5 ton motor-home on a ten degree slope and it worked very well. Rugged in use and very easy to pack away in the bag provided for the purpose, I recommend this product to any caravan or motor home user.
by Harry Palmer (26 Jun 2015)

by G B Stringer (04 May 2015)
Excellent, I purchased to level my motorhome to stop water lying on roof when not in use.
by Andrew G (04 Mar 2015)
Very pleased with these. Could actually feel the wheels going up to each level (still had someone watching). Came very quickly. They have a very good bag to keep them in.
Quattro Huge Level
by Tigga (12 Jan 2015)
I've given this 5 stars as the product is exactly as was stated, but I wish I had taken heed of some of the feedback from customers stating how big and heavy these ramps are. We are struggling to find a place for them in the motorhome. We haven't been away camping yet to try them out but will review after testing. UPDATE. When using on bottom or top level motorhome is solid unlike our old levels the van was 'bouncy' and never felt safe. I think it might be the width and the way the wheels sit in grooves. Well pleased with these ramps.
by Derek (03 Jan 2015)
Good heavy ramps
Gives A Good Height Increase To Help Level My Campervan
by Dave_cumbria (16 Nov 2014)
Gives a good height increase to help level my campervan. I have managed to crack the end of one but I'm still using it.
by Louise (23 Oct 2014)
They are mammoth!!!! So make sure you have the space to keep them....I do luckily. I go on sites which are quite hilly, so I hope these will do the job. I got the joining plate as well, so that I can run caravan up and down them...In theory should be good!!!
by Stan S. (13 Sep 2014)
versatile as advertised did a good job and excellent quick delivery, very pleased on our first outing using them.
I Love It
by Mrs Marion K Cunningham (09 Sep 2014)
Very sturdy levellers, used them on our recent touring holiday without any hitches, recommend this product highly
Heavy Duty And Well Made

Excellent For Our Motorhome And They Fit Into Our Garage ...
by Peter Lourie (10 Aug 2014)
Excellent for our motorhome and they fit into our garage in the back. However I could see they maybe too heavy for some people. I like the carry bag that goes with them
by Pete (30 Jul 2014)
The extra height achieved was great and the curved steps gives a positive feel.
Great Ramps For Larger/heavier Motorhomes
by Mr Paul Craymer (24 Jul 2014)
Really great ramps! They are nice and high and really sturdy. I have a Class C Motorhome 3.5T+ and they are reassuringly well made without being too heavy.
I can't speak about the longevity yet as have only used them a few times but I can't foresee any problems.
The free carry case is a bonus too.
by Ian Brown (18 Jul 2014)
Excellent heavy duty ramps, perfect for our motorhome.
Seem Up To The Job
by Mr. Keith Leech (16 Jul 2014)
Problems with the supplier, did not inform me they were out of stock and did not respond to my emails re where is it? It took nearly a fortnight to arrive. I have not used them yet but they look up to the job and better than the Fammia that i have been using. They are higher with a anti rollback platforms for the wheel to sit in and are wider.
They Are Good Quality And Easily Take The Weight Of My Motorhome
by Brian Callow (15 Jul 2014)
They are good quality and easily take the weight of my motorhome, which is about 3500kgs. The graduated steps are a good idea as they do away with the need for wheel chocks, the carrying bag is quite handy too. Overall very pleased.
These Ramps Are Excellent For Our Motorhome And Easy To Use With The ...
by Ollie Nana (04 Jul 2014)
These ramps are excellent for our motorhome and easy to use with the staged ramps. Quite heavy though to carry around.
by Rouflab (18 Apr 2014)
Excellent very sturdy easy to git motor home onto the ramps as there are levels for the wheel to fit. Only possible downside if u go too far it could flip up and damage the sill
by Ijgray (01 Apr 2014)
I bought these for my campervan and they were delivered on time, They come with a canvas type holder and work well because of their grip, I used them in the snow a well without any problems
by Mike S. (04 Mar 2014)
Also very useful as safe service ramps when one needs to get under a car to carry out minor repairs.
Good And Sturdy
by Emlyn J Evans (08 Jan 2014)
Quality car ramps in handy packaway bag. Quite heavy and take up quite a bit of storage room, but definitely strong and also have the advantage of stepped incline rather than the straight type.
by Realistically_cynical (01 Dec 2013)
Big and chunky they are most useful because of the 4th level. Supplied in a smart bag (a nice surprise) mine split immediately but was replaced. Don't expect the bag to be robust enough to abuse it, but as it was a freebie anyway then there is no room to complain. The downside: they are large (as expected) and they are very heavy. So you need lots of room and need to to be aware of you payload. Otherwise they are wider than other kinds and they work well.
Leveling Motor Home
by Val Marian (08 Nov 2013)
Have used them extensively, They are a little heavy but this adds to the stability. Needs a little nerve to raise the van to the top position but ok when you get used to them. Out class the cheaper and lighter ones
Milenco Quattro Level
by Mr Vipas (11 Sep 2013)
Extremely robust high lift levelers 1st class product.
by standrewac (17 Aug 2013)
Heavier than i thought they'd be, but very, very sturdy. Easier to use than a straight ramp and quicker than the wind up types. Stable in use and easy to pack away.
It Works Well
by Mr J A Clarke (03 Aug 2013)
It is a lot bigger and easier to use than the one I had before. The fact that it is wider is the key.
by Mr. John Crowland (16 Jun 2013)
These ramps are sturdy enough for our Motorhome which has a GVW of 4.25tns. They are easy to use and dont slip unless on loose stones or similar. The only downside is their size and weight. The bag they come in works well an we have found a suitable place for them. By their nature they are generally first out and last into the Motorhome. Loading them with other daily items requires thought.
Very Good, Sturdy Levelling Ramps
by Mr. M. F. Irwin (20 Feb 2013)
Chose these levelling ramps on the recommendation of other motorhome users. Very easy to use and the four levels are handy to ensure the motorhome is level. Recommended.
by Mr Baldwin (24 Jan 2013)
Do what they say. Good sturdy design, although I can forsee issues if used on soft mud. A couple of boards will be kept just in case.
Great Xmas Present
by Jean Kirk (07 Jan 2013)
Makes the Fiammas look like toys. Fantastic no sinking or slipping used on Fiat Ducato Motorhome, very satisfied the bag is sturdy too.
Milenco Level Ramps.
by Pat (22 Nov 2012)
The Milenco Level Ramps are so useful, as a lot of places we camp are very unlevel, they are big and chunky and very strong, so good for the job. We are very pleased with them and look forward to lots of use from them next year, when we have a lovely "Summer"!. Thank you.
Lightweight,Strong And Sturdy Product
by Happylady (18 Apr 2012)
I originally bought the milenco pair quattro level ramps for my dad as the pair of ramps he did have were heavy ,slipped out of place when the ground was wet and made of wood! I came across the mienco ramps as a fellow neighbour on our caravan holiday had them and had said how lightweight and sturdy they were but also stong and did not slip on wet ground. Also they were wider than the usual ramps on the market. I ordered a pair of milenco ramps from peak outdoors on the amazon site on the sunday evening and they arrived tuesday morning! super quick delivery. My dad is more than happy with these and has now thrown the wooden ones away.
Size Does Matter
by Brianb (06 Jul 2011)
Seem to spend my life, or hard earned cash, on levelling ramps. Tried quite a few including the previous Milenco model (which cracked on first useage - with a 3500 Kg motorhome! -). Used the ubiquitous Fiamma for a long time but needed a higher lift so succumbed to buying the quattro Milenco, large and heavy and expensive. Had to find a place to store it in the van, but it does the job and looks and feels as if it will last, also the shaped settling steps are very useful, the Fiamma chocks have been relegated to the garage. So, pleased I bought it.
Milenco Quattro Caravan Levelling Ramp Set
by Jcw.caravaner (28 Jun 2011)
These levelers are sturdy and robust, nice and wide to give plenty of room and stability for the wheel, they also came with a handy storage bag. I must compliment the supplier on an excellent swift service.
by Motorhomer (29 Apr 2011)
These levelling blocks arrived promptly and are brilliant, they do the job perfectly every time with ease. Throughly recommend this product and the seller.

Milenco Quattro Level (pair)
by Mr Spiller (30 Aug 2010)
Does what it should, that is, "level" my motorhome. Size and storage is a problem for me, but I'll manage because of the overall quality and abilty to "level"!
