Review of the Fastway ONEstep Tandem Axle Trailers and RV XL Wheel Chocks


What's going on, everybody Adam here, with etrailer today. We're going to be taking a look at the Fastway ONEstep XL wheel chocks. So, if you're really looking to upgrade your wheel chock game, just because you want a little bit more stable of a feel whenever you're inside. As you can see, we just have someone random wheel chocks. A lot of the times people get creative, but the bad thing about these kinds of wheel chocks, whether it's just a block of wood or an actual chock that goes on the outsides, you're still going to have a decent amount of play. I don't necessarily love that because you can only get it so tight against the outside edge.

You usually just sit there. I kick it until it gets in there. But with this, you can still use your feet, but it's a lot easier. And it's really going to use a lot of force to get a lot more stabilization out of the chock. So as you can see right here, this is basically what a normal wheel chock does.

You know, it kind of gives us a little bit of wiggle, but with this, just use that foot, instead of kicking that chock in, you stomp down like that and already you can see there's no movement whatsoever. So whenever we're working on these RVs, maybe even on the roof, or even just living on the inside, you want it to feel like home and you just want it to feel stable when you're working. So with this, this is the best way to stabilize your camper trailer and also chock it up. As far as the construction goes, I'm digging the color combo. One, just because this is going to resist against rust and corrosion over time, just cause it is powder-coated and we are going to have a zinc wheel chock.

So, that's why we didn't really want to powder coat this, just because it'll get scraped up and stuff, but we do have a zinc coating on it, so it's not going to rust away over time. And, they also thought about it with the cable. So, this is just used to pull up to disengage the chocks. And, the nice thing about that is it is coated, so you're not going to be scraping your hands or cutting your hands, whenever these start to fray. It's got a nice coating over it, so it's going to be UV resistant, and it's not going to hurt your hands.

One thing I would add to this setup, that does not come with it, is a padlock. So, once you figure out exactly which configuration you need, you should be able to find a little hole that's going to be open. So what we can do is kind of fish a lock or something like that to this so it's going to prevent it from wanting to separate these three pieces. You can do that. You can lock it down a bunch of different other ways, if you wanted to do a cable lock or something, but a padlock's really going to do the best for this. So, I would definitely recommend adding that because all the other wheel chocks that we have, you can't really lock them. But with this one, you do have that option, which I like. So, comparing it to some of the other wheel chocks, one, just compare it to your basic wheel chocks. You know, if you have one on the outside, one on each side of the outside, you know, you're not really, there's no pressure being pushed in kind of like how these two are pushing against each other to give you that stabilization you're wanting with that. They're going to start shifting around and you're still going to have a little bit of movement. So, if you wanted to upgrade from normal chocks. We have these, but there's also ones where I would put in the same ballpark as the ONEstep, and that is going to be by Ultra-Fab. The Ultra-Fab is going to sit in right here. So one, you have to put it in there. You got to make sure it's not going to fall down or anything like that. And then you have to take a tool, tighten it up, and then it basically just expands in between your wheels. I don't like that as much because, one, it's a little bit more difficult. Two, you need a tool. With this, like, all we have to do is make our adjustments. You can just use your hand and the tool that they included to move these bolts, but then all you need really is your foot. So if it we're me, one, I think these are more stable. Two, it's a lot easier. I really do like the design and it's super, super easy to use and install. So I'm going to chalk this one up as a win. But, if you stick around, we're going to show you exactly how we did it. This is how the chock is going to come out of the box. It's just going to have one of these rods in here, but it is going to come with the second one, and an extra pin, but there are some measurements to take to see if this is going to be necessary or not. So, let's go ahead and put this in there as if it's already adjusted to what we want, kind of place it in like that. And as you can tell and see, it's really, really tight. And I really don't think that, stepping on it, we're really going to have, it's really adjusted right. So, I'm putting a lot of weight on there, not adjusted right. So, what we can do is we can pull this little pin right here and then slide this guy out. So we we're on this hole here. So, what I'm going to try to do is go down one hole and adjust a little bit. So, what we can do is kind of take that pin go through, just one hole over, still really not going to do it for us. So let's do the more hole down, this one, just like that. All right, perfect, we're in business. So, now once that's done, you just want to put the pin through just like this, now we can take our foot. There we go. And that's locked into place. So, you are going to have to kind of play with it a little bit, especially if you're going from trailer to trailer, it might be a smart idea to kind of mark it. If you are going to be changing it constantly. But for this right here, you just got to play with it to find the right hole and make sure it has a nice sturdy, sturdy amount of pressure, just like that. It's best, whenever you really have to put your foot on it, and put a decent amount of pressure in there, especially if you're going to be moving around and yada yada yada. So, this is about the right amount of tension. Straight out of the box, it is going to be adjustable from 16 inches to 24 inches. And, where we get that measurement is from tip to tip. So, from the very, very edge of this chock to the very, very edge of the other 16 to 24 out of the box. But, if you are using a rather larger trailer, whether you're a trucker, or you just have a massive trailer, you can use this other piece to fit in there, and that's going to get us from 24 all the way to 30 inches. And again, from tip of the chock to tip of the chock. If we are going to need to make this a little bit bigger and we're going to need to use this, just notice how this thing's set up. So, we have one bar right here, and that's what we're going to achieve on the other side. So, the only thing we really need to undo is here. Does come with an Allen key, go ahead and just put that in there. And then, we will need a 9/16 inch socket, on the other side, it is a nylon lock nut, and will take a little bit. If you have hand tools, I would use them. You don't really need to use power tools or anything like that. We just need to take this thing out real quick. Once that's off, keep your eyes on all of the hardware that I need to use all that again. So, slide this out. We're going to have two washers, our bolt, and our nut. And then, what we want to do is notice how on this side, we just have one hole. So, that is this side of our bracket. So, we're going to do that same exact thing. So, I like to put it on the same side as the other bracket. And what we're going to do is we're going to put the bolt through this bracket, put one washer on this side, and then one washer on the other. Then we can tighten this up. We do not want to tighten it up all the way. We still want this thing to be able to pivot, but we do want it to be nice and snug. So, that's one of those washers that are in there. We'll get it kind of, almost completely tight, but we do want these things to kind of just be able to swing there. See, that's a little too tight, loosen up a little bit. There you go. You kind of want it to be able to go on its own just like that. So then, we can go ahead and take our extra little piece and clip. We can put that through whichever hole is going to work. Like I said, you're going to have to mess with it a little bit to find out exactly which one's going to be best for you. And we can do those adjustments either on our bar here or on our chock. So, as you can see, we do have some other adjustments here. So, whatever is going to work best for you. You can adjust a lot of different ways. So, if you really want to stabilize your trailer or your camper, this is going to be the best way to do it. You're going to get the most amount of leverage. And regardless of what surface you may be on, this thing's not going to slide away, or anything like that. And all you really need is your foot to get it locked down and secured into place. And that's pretty much it for our look at the Fastway ONEstep XL wheel chock..
