How many flat-jacks do I need for leveling (putting horizontal) my camper or my caravan/folding caravan?

On normal campings the following amount of flat-jacks is sufficient:

Normal camper (with 4 wheels)2 flat-jacks needed to lift the 2 lowest wheels on the slope, in order to level your camper
Normal caravan or folding caravan (with 2 wheels)1 flat-jack needed to lift the lowest wheel on the slope, in order to level your (folding) caravan
Big camper (with 6 wheels, tandem-axle camper, 1 front axle and 2 back axles)3 flat-jacks needed to lift the lowest wheels on the slope, in order to level your tandem-axle camper
Big caravan (with 4 wheels tandem-axle caravan with 2 axles)2 flat-jacks needed to lift the lowest wheels on the slope, in order to level your tandem-axle caravan
Big camper (with 6 wheels, 1 front axle with 2 wheels and 1 back axle with 4 wheels, the so-called twin wheels)3 flat-jacks needed to lift the lowest wheels on the slope, in order to level your twin wheels camper

If you are often outside the campings with your camper, so camping in the wild, then you will encounter situations in which you also need 3 flat-jacks (instead of 2) with your normal 4-wheel camper. Reason fort his is that the slopes are not only in 1 direction, but in several directions, like high in the Pyrenees or Alps or in the mountain forests or fjords in Norway. In those cases you need a third flat-jack to correct the third wheel to be level. This only holds for the adventurous people who often camp outside campings and in extremer ground circumstances. Normally you only need 2 flat-jacks for leveling your camper on normal camping situations.
