With Labor Day just around the corner, this year's camping season is drawing to a close for most of us. Whether you've got one or more trips planned, or are calling it a year, now's a good time to stock up on some fresh gear for the great outdoors. That's exactly why this deal on a pair of camper wheel chocks caught our eye.

Listed on Amazon for nearly 50% off, the chocks feature a scissor-locking X-shape design that prevents your trailer's wheels from moving around when you don't want them to. Simply put them between two wheels and extend, forcing each side out until it's tight against the tire. The company defines a range of three to 12 inches between each tire, which should be plenty for most camper and trailer applications.

To extend the sides, you can either use a crank handle or attach the included socket adapter for power-tool speed. Using a power tool might be the way to go, as the brand claims the chock fully extends in three minutes—which seems like a good chunk of time.

Discounted down to just 48 bucks, we can't help but feel like this is a win-win deal. Locking up your camper's wheels throughout your stay provides peace of mind and better sleep—two very important things while you're out on the back 40.

In short, every camper or trailer should be as secured if possible whenever parked, and these wheel chocks do the trick. And for about $50, it's a deal that's tough to pass up. We all know how fickle Amazon's sales can be, so it might be a good idea to scoop a set up while you can, even if you don't use 'em until next year. Remember, if you wanted to feel your vacation bed move with the breeze, you would've gone on a cruise!
