Sorry, crossed wires - I was thinking more about one of the tripod style axle stands rather than a jack base. You need to have some way of propping the van up so you can work underneath it safely, and I wouldn't recommend you go under anything that's only supported on a Hi-Lift jack.

I'd suggest doubling up the use of something here instead of hauling one of those things.
Spare wheel for example, and a selection of thick wood chocks.

As a jacking platform, I am wounding whether using one of these would work,

along with one of these, plus a bit of 10mm ply

possibly get two height options, I will have to test the idea.


My original jack broke lifting the van, and I have not replaced it yet.
As far as safe support to work under the van I'm still pondering, short of proper axel stands the spare wheel and wood seems as good as any and certainly better than none.

THE ULTIMATE PORTABLE T25 TOOL KIT :ok

In emergencies only. I would not recommend this whatsoever. Yet at the time necessary for removing, cleaning and greasing a driveshaft after it came adrift touring Scotland in 2017
To be honest l reckon it could easily take weight of
corner of camper. And better than trolley jack on grass.
I keep 12x12" thick piece of ply and cardboard in camper too.

The corner of the van, I don’t think ours would take the spare wheel.
