Trail-A-Mate is an item that all caravaners should have in their arsenal.
Its simply a BRILLIANT PRODUCT, especially if you have a few years under your belt like myself. (Old Guy Warning) haha
A Hydraulic Jack and Jockey wheel all in one combination.
Change your Caravans Flat Tire Easily and Safely
Two days after I made this Video above I actually got to use the Trail-A-Mate for real.
Sadly, I didn’t have a good camera with me, otherwise I would have replaced this video, with a real life demo.
I am so glad I had my Mate handy, it made changing the tire so easy.
It took me approx 1 1/2 hours all up, removing the flat tire, driving to the nearest tire center, getting a new tire fitted to the rim, returning to my trailer, and fitting it.
For those of you who have tried to use a standard car jack for your trailer or caravan, I feel your pain.
P.S. I am extremely impressed with the Trail-A-Mate. Its heavy duty steel construction gives you the confidence that it is built to last, and I thoroughly recommend it.
