Trail A Mate Hydraulic Jockey Wheel Jack Caravan Motorhome RV Trailer Parts


$ 349.00

  • Description



    It is a Hydraulic jockey wheel that converts in to a jack when you need it. You simply swap the wheel for a solid base plate. The key features of the Trail-A-Mate are as follows:

    Capability - WLL 1,000kg / ATM 2,900kg

    Versatility - Easily converts from a jockey wheel to a jack

    Ease of Use - Being hydraulic it takes very little effort to operate

    Safety - Fully complies with the Australian mandatory safety standards (2693:2007)

    It has many applications and uses as you will see below such as Caravanning, Horse Floats, Trailers, Food , Motor Homes (the list goes on). It is even used by the Australia Defence Force - four Trail-A-Mates are used on each corner of a vehicle that carries a telescope so it can be safely leveled on un-even ground. It is an extremely versatile product.

    In addition to its versatility we have spent many years perfecting and refining the Trail-A-Mate to be as safe and easy to use as possible. Leading up to 2007 we were working with the Australian Government to assist them in introducing a Mandatory Safety Standard for Caravan and Trailer Jacks. Each year in Australia around 160 accidents are linked to the misappropriate use of vehicle jacks. Deaths and injuries ranging from amputation and fractures to crush injuries, result from vehicles falling off vehicle jacks, so don't risk using an un-approved jack.

    F.A.Q'S about the Trail-A-Mate

    1.Can Trail-A-Mate be fitted to my caravan?

    Yes, Trail-A-Mate has been designed specifically to fit cara, trailers and horse floats into the existing jockey wheel clamp.

    2.Can the brackets for the jacking point be fitted to my caravan or trailer?

    Yes, almost all cara built over recent years have a cross- member at the rear of the axles strong enough to accommodate the brackets, which must be welded on. However, over the last couple of years, the majority of caravan manufacturers have fitted the brackets which create the jacking points for Trail-A-Mate as standard equipment.

    3.If I purchase a Trail-A-Mate, do I need to buy a separate jack?

    No, the Trail-A-Mate is designed to be used as both a jockey-wheel and a jack, minimizing the need to carry unnecessary equipment on holidays with you.

    4.Will Trail-A-Mate lift my six metre caravan?

    Yes, Trail-A-Mate will lift a six metre caravan high enough so you change both wheels on one side of the caravan at once should you have to. However, it is recommended should you have to change both wheels together, the caravan should be supported using appropriate vehicle support stands.

    5.My six metre caravan has an aggregated mass (ATM) of 2,900kg, can I still use the Trail-A-Mate?

    Yes, Trail-A-Mate has a Working Load Limit of 1000kg. When you are jacking the caravan using the Trail-A-Mate, you are not lifting the entire weight of the caravan, you are lifting approximately 1/3 or less of the vehicle weight at each of the jacking points. If your trailer has an ATM greater than 2,900kg you will need the Trail-A-Mate MkII.

    6.If I get a flat tyre, will I still have to climb underneath the caravan to jack it up?

    No, Trail-A-Mate is designed so that it is operated from a standing position, using a minimum amount of effort, preventing you from having to climb underneath your van, making it not only easier, but a much safer option.

    7.How high will my Trail-A-Mate lift fully extended?

    The Trail-A-Mate has the capacity with the base plate fitted, to lift from as low 6 inches (150mm) above the ground to a height of 20 inches (500mm) in one straight lift.

    8.I have limited mechanical knowledge, what happens if something goes wrong with my Trail-A-Mate?

    Trail-A-Mate has been designed so that even a person with a very limited knowledge of hydraulics could repair the unit by following some very basic instructions
