No Guesswork - Know How Much Height Is Needed to Level Your RV

Most levels only tell you when your RV or trailer is out of level, without offering any measurements to guide you. This means that you must repeatedly add or remove blocks until your RV is level. Driving your RV up and down the blocks is also time consuming and can wear down the blocks. The Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level takes the guesswork out of leveling by telling you exactly how much you need to raise or lower your RV or trailer to get it level.

If your RV is out of level, a red bar will appear on either the left or right side of the display. Each red bar represents 1-1/2" of height that must be added to that side. Once your RV is level, the middle green light will illuminate.

For smaller leveling tasks, the Smart Level can also be configured to make each illuminated red bar equal 1" of height. Check the small red LED in the center of the device. When the small red LED is illuminated, each red bar represents 1" of height.

This level's display is hinged, so it can be used for both front-to-back and side-to-side leveling. When the level is folded in alongside the RV, it will measure front to back. Swing the level out so that the display is perpendicular to your RV, and it will measure side to side. The hinge also allows you to swing the level out 180 degrees so that it can be seen from the driver's seat using your rearview mirror.

Use with Hopkins Leveling Ramp Kit for the Easiest Leveling

This level is specifically designed to work with the Hopkins leveling ramp kit (HM08200 - sold separately) to make leveling your RV or trailer as simple as possible. Each red light that appears on the Smart Level means that 1 leveling block from the kit must be added on that side of your RV or trailer. No extra calculations or guesswork - simply read the display and add the blocks that you need.

This leveler is amazing!! For the price it gets our 5th wheel RV level very easily. I see the lights during the side to side leveling to save my wife a lot of running from inside to outside checking the level on the RV floor. Once side to side is complete, fold the leveler and then get the front/back levelling done well. This is a very simple cost effective leveler for any RV trailer that doesn't have the self leveling system.


This works well on a laminated trailer but tends to be hard to keep level on a metal sided trailer. It really needs a flat surface to sit on.


Batteries died quickly,doesn't level that well. Touch unit level changes, not that happy with it.

I have gotten in contact with the manufacturer and they have suggested that you can try calibrating the level. Start with the power on. Hold the power button until the yellow lights flash. Quickly release the power button and press it again. This should correct the leveling issue but will not help with battery life. As for the battery life, you may need to check the battery before installing it in the level.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 07/22/2022


this thing is amazing. It has made backing into a camp spot so easy especially at night when you get in late. The lights let you know when you are level and you can just stop and set up. No more getting out and checking and trying again and again and again only to find you still are not level. If this one ever goes bad I will buy again and I have recommend this to all my friends

ROBERT L - 04/18/2021


Have not installed it yet but it looks very well made, I would recommend E trailer for all of your RV needs


Have not received the item. USPS is saying they delivered it yesterday but when I checked the mail it was not there. Guess someone else has it.

Customer Service will contact you.

Great product


installed easily but, have not used at a site yet


There were delays in availability (as mentioned by others), and etrailer handled in a decent way. The product seems exactly as described...but...

I installed it yesterday. Had to attach it to window, since the trailer wall is not flat. Came home today (~1 hour drive), and found the unit MIA. The stickum was still present (attached to window), but the bracket that came with the factory-applied mounting tape had separated completely, departing at some point on the way home. :(

If you buy this unit, attach it using the provided screws, NOT the factory-provided mounting tape.


Fairly simple to use, install is fairly easy although they should include a reminder about mounting far enough away from other items on your rig as I mounted mine about 4" to the right of my landing gear control and did not realize it was too close until after I installed a screw. I did just cut off the finger tab on the left back side and then it was able to slide on and off, just wish I would have mounted it about 1 more inch over.

Still good, just dont push the buttons wrong and reset when the trailer isnt level or you screwed. Best part is visibility in the dark, which is when we tend to get to camp.
Shane M - 04/14/2021


Just do not like it, too sensitive for a big trailer, you can get the same result with a small magnetic shop level.
Sending it back


The product is super easy to install and makes leveling the camper a one person job!
FYI, Delivery was fast and follow-up on the status of the order was impressive.

Not accurate. Dont use it anymore.
Richard L - 12/28/2018


They work very well and effortlessly.


I ordered this item last year and was disappointed in the quality of the workmanship. It's all plastic and as a result, the little pins that hold the pieces in place break quite easily. Despite getting a replacement one (because the pins broke off the initial one in the first 5 minutes), I have yet to install it.

I might be tempted to buy another one if the new one's pins were made from metal or were somehow more robust.

Sadly disappointed in what should have been a very helpful tool!


I attached the leveler with the stickon provided but this was not secure enough to get a correct level reading. As this is a brand new trailer I am hesitant to drill into it to install a product I already find questionable.


what a simple but effective product, no more up and down to set the trailer up. Great product, Thanks etrailer for great pricing and super service.


Works well, easy to see even in strong sun. When combined with the AM3604 Andersen Camper Wheel Chock and Levelers, leveling and chocking the camper is an one shot, easy process.


Very useful and easy to use.


I received the LED level as promised although there was a delay from the manufacturer. I have not yet put it on my travel trailer but expect to this weekend. I have "played" with it and can see it will do exactly what I want it to do. I like that is detachable from the base when not needed.

I am very impressed with the customer service I received and the updates and phone calls when there was a delay from the supplier.

Thanks again etrailer.



Used proved adhesive to attach to my trailer. Fell off quickly. Have new one on order. When I tested it in the drive before leaving it offered me accurate information for leveling my trailer.


This device s a great help with the accuracy level of our trailer and is convenient to use.
Very reasonable price, timely and efficient shipping. etrailer is our go to source for our parts and supply needs, they are helpful, courteous and will personally speak/communicate with you to solve issues and questions and advice/recommendations.


It was easy to install but even with the solid mount when you go for the side to side level you still have to hold the level against the mount.


Opened package and put battery in it. It seems to be just fine.It was received on schedule and in good shape. Thank for all your help.


Takes the guesswork out of leveling. Simply add one block for every light as indicated and bingo— instant level.


Very handy for leveling my fiver on lots that uneven. Just lay out the boards or leveling rockers and watch in the mirror for the light to turn green while pulling up or backing onto the boards. Saves a lot of getting out to check.

  • How Would Hopkins Smart Level be Viewed in Rear View Mirror of RV
    Lets say you install this on the driver side wall of your RV and have it flipped out so that you can view it in your mirror. The level itself would still look correct as you look at it in the mirror. So if you were too high on the passenger side the indicator on the driver side of the green dot would illuminate.

  • Where is a Good Place to Mount the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201
    If it were me I would place the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201 near stabilizer jack controls, if they are powered, or near a stabilizer jack itself if it is manually operated. That way you can make your leveling adjustments with the Smart Level right there!

  • How Many of the Hopkins LED Levels for Trailer HM08201 Are Needed for Trailer
    If you wanted to level your trailer from front to back and side to side you'd only need one of the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Levels # HM08201. The hinged design of this kit allows you to check the front to back and side to side level just be swiveling it.

  • Side to Side Level Installation Position on a 35 foot Camper Using the Hopkins Smart Level.
    The Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level for RVs and Trailers part # HM08201 was designed to be mounted closer to the front of the camper. At least as close as it takes to still be able to see it. The way it pivots allows you to watch it in your mirror as your pulling onto your leveling blocks. While there will be a little flex since you are still connected to the truck for the majority of the leveling it doesn't effect it to a noticeable degree. I've linked a video on it for you to check out.

  • How to Calibrate Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level
    What you are experiencing just means that you need to calibrate the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201. To do this you need to set the Smart Level on a table and level it. Once the green bubble is where it needs to be you press and hold the green button. When you release it the top 2 lights should be flashing yellow. Once this happens just press the green button one more time and then the center green light should come on. I reached out to my contact at Hopkins who confirmed this.

  • Can the Hopkins Electronic Smart Level Be Calibrated?
    The Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level for RVs and Trailers # HM08201 can be recalibrated. According to my tech contact at Hopkins, you simply will level your trailer using the bubble level and then press the green power button once. The top two lights should flash and that will help the level to recalibrate for the bars to help you with future use showing you either 1-1/2 inches or 1 inch increments as you determine in the settings shown on the sticker.

  • What Length Trailer Was Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level for Trailers # HM08201 Set Up For
    The Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level for RVs and Trailers # HM08201 is designed to give you a rough estimate of how much further you'd need to jack the trailer up or down to get it level. Each red light will indicate 1-1/2 inches that it needs to move up or down. This can also be set to 1 inch. This was configured with the average RV length in mind so while it will work with your 45 foot long trailer you might find that the indicator lights aren't perfect in terms of the amount of inches...

  • Could Hopkins LED Smart Level be Used to Level Fifth Wheel Trailer

  • Where Does Hopkins Electronics LED Smart Level # HM08201 Install
    Most people would mount the Hopkins Electronic Smart Level # HM08201 on the outside of the RV on the side of it close to the front so that they could crank their jack up and then have the easiest access to the level to see it and get back to the jack. Since a level works regardless of where it's installed front to back you really could mount it anywhere on your camper interior as long as it's on the side wall.

  • Hopkins HM08201 Trailer Leveler Reading One Inch High With Trailer Level
    I spoke with my Hopkins representative regarding your question. Are you measuring for level with the # HM08201 LED smart level with the trailer hitched to the vehicle, or when it's up on the jack? If you're leveling while on the jack, the leveler will read tongue-high, because the vehicle will squat a bit once it's hitched.

  • Can the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201 be Mounted Inside a Motorhome/Trailer
    The Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201 has a universal installation system that allows you to either use the 3M Double Coated Tissue Tape or the 3 included screws for the installation. It can be installed both inside and outside. This system is great when use with the Hopkins Leveling Kit # HM08200.

  • Does the Trailer Need To Be Level To Install the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level
    The trailer does have to be level or as close as possible to install the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level part # HM08201 according to my contact at Hopkins. Please note, the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level is designed specifically for the Hopkins Leveling Kit part # HM08200. If the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level was not initially installed on a level trailer then the system would not correctly show level each time you went to activate it since the baseline reading was off.
