    Another wacky drawing below for easy left and right alignment via opposing offset angle iron steel when loading the camper on your own.

    And just back up against a tree to shove it forward more if needed, then bolt her down :-)

    @MB loving the rattle gun, which ever way you decide I'd be using some conveyor
    belting to insulate it so you dont have steel on steel.

    Impact driver/Rattle gun was @Old Wal 's idea above TD, I just captured it artistically :-)
    Conveyor belt rubber is great but can be a bit hard to slide over especially if on your own. I'm a big fan of HDPE & LLDPE as was pictured in my scribble. Very hard wearing, especially HDPE and both are slippery as for hip & shoulder tackle alignment.

    Haven't purchased off Dotmar before but they have a great range of extruded profiles on their web too.

    Something like R125 profile to cap angle iron could work hopefully.

    Why not carry around 4 flat bits of timber to sit the Lift off legs on, set the height so you can reverse under it and your done surely.

    Probably a bit hard to see in my photos but on both the front and rear pads that I bolt through are designed to fit snug against the inside of the gunnel on my tray - makes locating my camper in relation to the bolt holes in tray easier. I don't have any dramas on uneven ground - I don't unload on a cement pad at home either.
    Remember that a high IQ doesn't make up for a lack of common sense.
